I'm a fan of Alton Brown. I think he did great things for food education and food entertainment, and he seems like a genuinely good dude. But his recipes are... fine.

I've made a half-dozen Alton Brown recipes at this point. They're all high-effort, mediocre result dishes where you end up expecting a lot more flavor out of what you got. I made his turkey brine twice until I realized I was spending $50 on something to dip raw turkey in. I've gotten better results with rock salt and whatever herbs I'm getting rid of because they're old.

I'm eager for the country to tire of Sriracha. And IPA. Dear jesus can we be done with IPA...
