Very cool Rob. I am not as much of an Alton fan as you (I prefer Emeril and Jamie Oliver), but its good that the was so pleasant to you guys and I do enjoy his wit and his show.

Oh yeah, Devil?  Name some!

And, my main exposure to Alton Brown came on the Iron Chef shows he hosted.  My verdict?  Not too good.  He seemed so out of place on that show, and REALLY needed someone else to bounce off of and interact with.  Part of the appeal of the Japanese Iron Chef was the interplay between numerous people.  Brown just didn't have it.

There needs to be a new thread titled "Things That Devil Hates"- It could be a living document that I will post in when the mood strikes. - I refuse to unload all of it in Rob's Alton thread.  biggrin

that's awesome, Rob_Merritt.  when i used to watch cable tv, Alton Brown was by far my favorite cook on the food channel.  actually, i also like Anthony Bourdain but i never seemed to be able to catch his shows with any regularity.  anyways, i'm glad you guys had a great time!   biggrin

I LOVE Alton Brown. It's the whole "give me a fish, teach me to fish" thing. Other cooking shows say "put in a half cup of white sugar and a half cup of brown sugar". AB says "By varying the ratio of white sugar and brown sugar you will get thinner, crispier cookies if you use more white sugar and thicker, chewier cookies if you use more brown." (OK, I might have gotten that one backwards, but the chocolate chip cookie episode is one of the top five episodes IMHO).  He gives information on the why of cooking, the chemistry and physics of it, rather than just throwing recipes at you. Best cooking show host ever!
