    The charcoal would light themselves on fire after that. BBQ self-immolation.

    Don't say I didn't warn you. At least it was only $15.

    Re: Trader Joe's Bourbon

    Think about what BT, or any distiller, will pick out to sell to an outfit like Trader Joe's at a price that allows Trader Joe's to sell it cheap and make a profit. Hint. They're not taking it from the Pappy Van Winkle pile.

    I think Chuck just gave us a pretty good definition of what 'specially selected' means.

    I think its more like "specially rejected".

    Clavius,

    Actually, I can verify that the Louisville TJ's has added spirits about a month or so ago. My buddy in Lexington tells me that spirits have also appeared in the Lexington TJ's. Didn't see the bourbon when I was in the Louisville TJ's a few weeks ago, but they promised it was coming. All of their bourbon offerings were 5$-$20 above local market.

    Looks like I'm in the minority here, but I thought this Bourbon was pretty decent for $15.
