017 – Tailgating, Butt Chugging and The Six Inch Flame

The guys talk about tailgating and butt chugging. Yeah, we went there. Let's see if we can offend everyone in one podcast.

Go-To Recipe: Balsamic Portobello Mushroom Burgers with Bell Pepper and Goat Cheese

This recipe from Martha Stewart is my go-to for whenever I’m in the mood for a grilled portobello mushroom burger.
