    I've done the usual marinades and made the BBQ sauces; they turned out great. So what else can I do?

    Sounds like something that could very easily lead to astringency and/or overly bitter end results if you aren't careful. Personally, I would just smoke one of the other ingredients and drink the beer with it. I could see marinades doing quite well but as soon as you apply heat to things that are bitter, you run the risk of overdoing it.

    Sounds awesome. But again, I think I'd either smoke the beef or the sour cream.

    brats, works nicely, you can make a gravy also, but it could come out strong to certain peoples palates.. worked for me, it was great.
  6. I have made chicken and chorizo chili with Smoke and Dagger by Jack's Abby and traditional German Rauch beer with delicious results.
