  1. chef John is using a special tutoring style: Never show up in the cooking process so he doesn't have to explain while cooking; writing down what he is going to say, and read it in a tone like reading to his kid at bedtime.

    Hrm. I live in Kentucky, and I've never heard of this. Nobody I know has either, I just called like 25 people, lol. My great granny is 101 and she's never heard of it. And there's no such thing as a Kentucky hot sauce. Just like KY was split in the civil war, the kinds of hot and barbecue sauces used in KY vary pretty widely. Usually most people keep a variety on hand from all over the country, because there's no telling what a particular person might want. Plus I live in Bowling Green, where the corvette plant and museum are, so there are always a shitload of tourists from all over the world, let alone the country. Not to mention loads of Asian and Indian foreign exchange students at WKU. No telling who you might end up having over to eat. But generally you're always going to see Frank's Red Hot and Louisiana in everybody's cabinets, you can always count on those being around. And I think almost every house in the country keeps a bottle of sriracha around.

    I was really expecting this to be a warm cheese spread/sauce. I can't remember if I've ever had it cold, but I would like it with some soft pretzels =D

  4. I don't trust a Chef that doesn't drink or enjoy cheese. I <3 Chef John..

    Is there a way to make a non-alcoholic version of this dip? In other words, would non-alcoholic beer work for making this?

    When I first saw this video I thought it was a recipe for "bear" cheese… has anyone ever milked a bear? I wonder…

  7. I'm actually from Kentucky and we would normally use bud light 

  8. Ooh yum! I'm going to make this but change it to a pimento cheese spread.

  9. I tried this recipe, because I'm working my way through a lot of Chef Johns recipes. I like to try them as a first timer l, then post on them. I made this just like he did. I have a small food processor and had to make it in two batches. Also, when it was first done I really didn't care for it. It did taste like skunky beer and cheese. After sitting in the fridge for a day, it was much better. The flavored combined and it tasted like a hearty cheese spread. You can probably identify the beer taste, but it ends up like a peppery after taste and something unidentifiable. I'd make it again and recommend it.

  10. Nice recipe but orange cheddar is most definitely not authentic! 🙂 Keep the food coming though :)

    I so have to make this for my boyfriend. He will love it.

    Beer or ??

  13. PBR and ZigZags… are by far my favorite celebrity chef ;)

  14. For people concerned about the alcohol, if it's kids you're worried about, considering that it's using a half cup of a weak beer per pound of cheese, your kid would be vomiting up cheese from sheer volume consumed before they felt any alcoholic effects.  For pregnant women, just use non-alcoholic beer.

    Anyway, I tried this, and added a bit of chopped chives, and it was great.  I used a non-dirt cheap beer, a nice nutty ale to complement the cheese, and it was great.
