Alton Brown is one of the reasons I am as good of a cook as I am now. 12 years ago, I pretty much cooked large chunks of meat on the grill... and that was it. After I met That Wife, and she introduced me to a wider range of cooking, I started watching Food Network. Specifically, I started watching every episode of Good Eats that I could. Alton Brown spoke to my inner Hardware Geek/ MacGyver wannabe, and showed all the science behind cooking. Now I have proof that he is a gun guy (there were suspicions... He's from Georgia, sometimes featured very cool tactical knives on his show, etc...). Very cool.
