Every time we log on to Amazon.com, they throw all these “Products You Also Might Like” at us. Invariably, they have something to do with the female form, booze, sports and/or military history, shaving cream, and feather headdresses. We’re not sure what Amazon was smoking with the headdresses, but otherwise they’ve got us pinned down. Take their most recent suggestion: Boozehound, a book that chronicles one man’s trip to the corners of the earth in search of new experiences with arcane spirits and liquors. The author, Jason Wilson, inserts interesting historical anecdotes about the spirits he encounters, gives recipes for drinks you’ve assuredly never had, and he keeps an entertaining travelogue describing the places he visits. A must read for any guy.

 You can’t have a fall evening without a fire. And you can’t have a fire without a Cowboy Cauldron. They’re built from solid plate steel, meaning they’ll last a lifetime or two and they come in four different sizes with elevated basins that can be adjusted to any height. We’re going with The Urbaan Cowboy® because it’s perfect for entertaining at home.  With a 30″ diameter basin, it is more than large enough to have a nice fire, but still small enough to pack into a pickup truck and take it with you.  Can you imagine the envy when we bust this puppy out at a tailgate or the beach? We haven’t seen a more handsome fire. You?  Best of all, Cool Material readers get an exclusive deal.
