The-Craft-Cookbook-IPAS-to-Porters

When it comes to cookbooks, you can never have enough if they involve alcohol, popular condiments or meat. We never thought we’d get to the point that we would actually enjoy reading or using a cookbook, but when the subtitle is “From IPAs and Bocks to Pilsners and Porters, 100 Artisanal Recipes for Cooking with Beer,” all bets are off because we love beer. From ribs, to couscous, to soup and even frittatas, The Craft Beer Cookbook includes over 100 recipes that somehow involve craft beer. What really sells it are the user review excerpts. “Easy to follow instructions.” Obviously this is a plus. “There is even a helpful chart to aid in what beers pair best with certain types of food.” Makes it easy to impress guests. “The photos are beautiful and it is so great to be able to see what the finished product should look like.” And there’s a system of checks and balances for your creation? Where do we sign?

 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.
