Where have you learned the most?

Is it here or another forum, books, mentors? I know I have probably learned more here than anywhere (besides actual experience). I dont frequent the other sites...Thats just me...db

Re: Where have you learned the most?

I've learned a lot from Cooks Illustrated and everything Alton Brown, but I've learned the most here on the forum and on the BBQ Central Radio show.

Re: Where have you learned the most?

I'm just pretty new to BBQ and just getting used to everything but this forum has been invaluable. I also pick up a lot of good ideas from a couple of books, "The Culinary Institute of America Grilling" and "Legends of Texas Barbecue Cook Book".

Re: Where have you learned the most?

I've got the Smoke & Spice book. Ive never really read through it. I always seem to thumb through and get distracted. I couldnt agree with Nick more! Ask a "Q" here and get a response almost immediatly.

(The other thing I like about this site is you can use profane language ie: Shoot or Gosh dangit' and Greg won't delete the post.)

Re: Where have you learned the most?

Here and countless screw ups in the kitchen and the pit. I do reference my CIA textbook for the basics a lot though.

'On Cooking' and ' The Escoffier Cook Book'

Re: Where have you learned the most?

Here; for BBQ stuff... too bad the search engine got messed up when he switched hosts.

For everything else, "The Joy of Cooking" has been my bible for ~28 years since I started getting into cookin.

Re: Where have you learned the most?

I have to say I learned a lot in this forum. I think I learn the most spending a day prepping and then screwing something up and I do not hesitate to post it here so others can learn from my mistakes. Also I am a recipe whore. I will try anything once.

Speaking of being a recipe whore, It really pisses me off that Mastercook 9 doesnt work with vista. I loved that prrogram.
