Damn, that chilli was close to perfection. The flavors were on point, and the heat was almost just the right level. I think we could have added a 5th shot of weapon X, though. So glad I grabbed a doggie bag to bring home.

And then the cake and brownies, oh god, I didn't move for like three hours.

I agree, the chili was freaking amazing, and more Weapon X wouldn't have been amiss. I wish I had taken a doggie bag too, I bet the stuff becomes even more awesome after the flavors have mingled for a day or so.

I'm almost disappointed that I'm not experiencing intense gastrointestinal distress after three helpings of the chili, but maybe that means that my clan's iron stomach manifests only when most needed. Have we heard from Richter or Luna today?

By the by, how were the rocky road brownies? I just made another batch for the staff room to kill the remaining chopped pecans. I'll probably never make them again after the success of the s'mores-stuffed brownies, but I'm curious if that recipe seems worthwhile at all.

Checking in, no issues at all, and I had a BIG bowl of the stuff...  Never can tell.

The rocky road brownies were awesome.  The s'mores stuffed brownies were, IMHO, better, but there's nothing wrong at all with the rocky road ones.

Good to know  :D. I just sliced up the rocky road batch destined for work, and trust me, they're yummier when still warm and gooey from the oven. As you say though, the s'mores stuffed version was better. Argh, too many tasty brownie varieties, too few calories per day.

I have heard from Richter today, so, no casualties, and nobody exploded.

We're going to have to try again sometime soon, that was a blast.

I'm actually a bit disappointed nobody exploded. 'Cause 80 miles away or not, I doubt Suu would have been able to dodge our collective blast radius. A little spaggotry runs a long way in the right environment.

In all seriousness though, I agree that we need to do that again. Despite the hour or two we all spent in a food coma, it was a lot of fun. Though to be fair I suppose the food coma part was fun too, it just lacked the energy of our other interactions.

Leln = Culinary GENIUS.  She produced a splendid assortment of brownies.  Rocky Road, S'More, and Stuffed S'More.  All three were great but her S'More variants were beyond what anyone reasonably expects of a brownie.  Seriously, this is more like a gourmet fudge. She is also our official wuss detector.  After downing a shot of weapon X without blinking, we had to acknowledge her advice and dose ALL the chili.

Luna brought  cornbread (VITAL), a fine spice cake with white frosting, and provided necessary backup to all Science! that occured (such as the chili being set on fire for kicks)

Both are Doktor and Nurse in their own rights.

Dimo came too, and was as ever energetic and personable.  He was a willing test subject too all concoctions, and we were never at a want for something interesting to discuss.  Next time he must be given access to the lab sooner to perpetrate things, should he wish.

..and yeah, I made chili.

SO I have record this is what I did:
The day before, I browned 1/2 pund gtround beef, One pund ground pork, and one pound of chicken sausage (tomato basil flavor).  I added 2 packets of sazon (One of the secrets of good Latin cooking), chili powder, and cumin freely.  Adobo, oregano, black pepper, green habenero sauce, and "Beware" hot sauce from Belize sparingly
I added 8 oz. of tomato sauce (plain, no spices), 8 oz. of water, and about 12 ox. of chopped tex/mex tomato.

I let it sit in the fridge overnight.
The next day I added 5 oz. of the Weapon X liquor, a can of black beans, a can of red beans, a can of fire roast diced tomatoes with garlic (the shit.), more adobo to taste, and let it cook slowly for another hour or two.

Served with cornbread, cheese and sour cream as people wished.

Then we all fell asleep watching "13th Warrior"

I saw him with the Weapon X.  I heard the phrase, "I wonder if this stuff will ignite?"

Is it a good sign or a bad one that I neither grabbed the fire extinguisher nor dove for cover, but spun around to be sure I didn't miss the SCIENCE! which was about to be applied?  (For the record, Weapon X goes up beautifully.)

Krupnikas:

OK, here we go.

Ingedients:

1 bottle Everclear, 750 ml  (You can also use vodka.  If you wanted, and like the burning sensation of alcoholism less than I do.)
2 tsp caraway seeds
10 whole cloves
4 Sticks cinamon
2 whole vanilla beans
2 pieces yellow ginger (or 2 tsp. Tumeric)
2 pieces white ginger (feel free to double this. at least.  We usually use a good 3-4 cm long chunk)
10 cardamom seeds cracked open
1/2 a nutmeg nut crushed
3 strips orange rind (just skin a whole one.)
3 strips lemon rind (just skin a whole one.)
1 pinch saffron (for color. optional)
4 cups water
2 lbs. honey
1-3 chinese dried hot peppers (optional, for more heat. The versions Tripple Zero and Torte tried had this.)

Procedure:
1. combine all spices and 4 cups water. Boil until it's reduced down to 2 cups
2. put the honey into a pot (same as the spice or different, whatever), and CAREFULLY heat it until it just starts to simmer or boil. As it boils, a white foam will develop. Skim it off an discard. DO this for 5-10 min., or until not much new foam is coming up. Don't sweat it if it's never totally done.
3. add the boiled down spice-water to the honey, mix well over VERY low heat.
4. CAREFULLY add the everclear to the still warm spice water + honey mix. I'm serious, there is mad science BOOM potential here. Take it off heat and away from potential ignition sources first, or you'll discover you're playing with sweet spicy napalm.
5. Once combined, heat on VERY low heat for 10-15 min covered. DO not even let it simmer, you'll just loose alcohol.
6. Remove from heat and let sit overnight, covered, then pour into bottles / jars / whatever.
7. Crap will settle out of it. After 2 weeks, pour off the clarified liquor, and filter the crap through coffee filters. Put back in bottles and let it settle again. Repeat filtering until it's clear of all crap.
8. Leave it alone for awhile to age.  After a month it will be ready. Time will make it better and more mellow, even after all the sediment crap is removed. It should be VERY clear. 6 month old stuff is what you had of mine. 1 year old stuff is suppose to be the nectar of the gods, if you can leave it alone that long...
What temperature should it be stored at while letting it settle and age?

Room temperature, not too hot, not too cold.

Sadly, there was no time between "I wonder if this will ignite" and the "whoosh."

Next time I'm in the kitchen when Richter is cooking, I will keep a camera on hand.
