John Currence is a Chef that’s won the James Beard award (as well as a host of others), been on Top Chef and opened a bunch of successful joints down south. But what we’re really most captivated about is this quote “I’m a flavor guy. I won’t bowl you over with subtlety, but I will fucking punch you in the mouth with flavor and surprise you in a place you won’t expect to be surprised.” This is exactly the guy we want writing a cookbook because it means we’ll actually use it. Pickles, Pigs & Whiskey is that book. 130 different recipes, organized into ten different cooking techniques and paired with a shitload of color photographs AND songs. That’s right, the cookbook that includes Deep South “Ramen,” Whole Grain Guinness Mustard and Kitchen Sink Cookie Ice Cream Sandwiches has an entire Spotify playlist to go along with it. John, if you ever read this, let’s be friends.

 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.
