    I love to cook with beer. Sometimes, I even put it in the food. How about you?

    There's just nuthin' like grilled bratwurst that's been boiled in beer.

    In fact, I think it's the law around here that you must serve brats at a tailgate party. Get some charcoal going on the grill.

    While it's getting up to temp, grab a six pack of beer. Pour two cans of beer into a Dutch oven (I usually use my 4 qt. Exec casserole for five brats) add a sliced onion and bring to a rolling boil. Add brats, make sure there's enough liquid to cover the brats. (I usually just use a couple of cans of beer and dilute it with water - the flavor is the thing - and I just drink the rest of it.) Return to boiling, then reduce heat. Simmer the brats while the charcoal comes up to temp.

    After about 15 minutes, remove the brats and place the grill, turning until they're browned.

    They're ready to serve at that point, but if your guests aren't ready, just heat the beer on low and keep the brats in the beer at low temp.

    Of course, if you've polished off the rest of the six pack in the mean time, you won't really care if you have any guests or not.

    (Oh, stop it. It's just a parody thread, but at least it's a tasty one!)

    How much goes into the chili and how much goes into the chef?

    It's a critical ratio.

    I married one of the few marines on the planet who doesn't like beer.

    I once tried a Martha Stewart recipe for Beer Braised Pork Butt. Big mistake. My house smelled like a brewery for 2 days. The meat was inedible. (I like beer, but till found it inedible.)

    That's where you went wrong. You're supposed to drink beer.

    This is pretty good. Though, it really isn't "cooking".

    Beer Cheese Dip

    Ingredients:
    1 package (3-ounce size) cream cheese -- softened
    1 package (8-ounce size) sharp Cheddar cheese -- shredded
    1 clove garlic -- minced
    1 tablespoon Worcestershire sauce
    1/2 teaspoon dry mustard
    1/4 teaspoon ground red pepper
    1/4 cup beer

    Directions:
    Beat cheeses at medium speed with an electric mixer until smooth. Add garlic and next 3 ingredients; beat well.
    Gradually add beer, beating until blended. Chill 1 hour. Serve with crusty bread or crackers.

    bumping b/c I hope there are more ideas.. My family are big 'beer' cookers..

    We love Beer Butted Chicken..

    whole chicken
    can of beer or pop
    poultry rub

    Directions:
    Rub outside of a whole chicken with a prepared rub of your choice. Set chicken on the can of beer (hence Beer Butted Chicken) and place over indirect heat on the grill. Be careful...it tips easily. On the side with heat, place a metal breadpan full of water. Make sure the chicken is on the side without heat or it will burn. Put the lid down and let it cook for about an hour or until a meat thermometer registers around 185 degrees. Take it off the grill and enjoy!


    The rub if choice, makes a HUGE difference in taste. So try different rubs to get completely different meals. We LOVE our Smoky BBQ rub!!

    This isn't really "cooking" either or fancy but I always rinse out my sauce jars with beer and then dump it in the pot. It does add a lot - when I don't do it the sauce isn't as yummy!
