Welcome to the Ranger Guild Hall! The bartender already knows what you want, the social distancing norms do not apply here for the same reason there is always enough dark corners for those who desire them. For those of you who feel more comfortable keeping these norms we have added additional outdoor seating, fall/spring will be here before you know it and milder temperatures are on the way, so feel free to take advantage of it :D

Okay, I know you have a weird obsession with pumpkin spice, but that is a hell of a thing to do to beer. What did that beverage ever do to you!?  😠

“I've always believed that failure is non-existent. What is failure? You go to the end of the season, then you lose the Super Bowl. Is that failing? To most people, maybe. But when you're picking apart why you failed, and now you're learning from that, then is that really failing? I don't think so." - Kobe Bryant, 1978-2020. Rest in peace, great warrior.

A ranger strides into the bar, taking up his usual bar stool.

 

I'm off on holiday soon, but there's always time for a swift one. Pint of the black stuff barkeep. Hold the pumpkin.

 

Looking at the drink presented to him the ranger smiles. An excellent choice. It seems @aramis has good taste.

How do you mean BBQ? I mean, whatever your intended meaning, the answer is of course yes, but having a BBQ means different things to different people. To a Texan a BBQ means slow coked smoking of meat (usually Brisket), whereas direct heat cooking (the fire is directly under the meat) is grilling. Even in the states people use the terms interchangeably, but if the result is smoked meat its a BBQ, and if it's direct heat grilling it's a cookout. 

But, as I said, if the intended meaning is one, the other, or both, the answer is a resounding yes.

 

 

Sweeping Declaration!

Thanks to aramis, a new permanent feature of the guildhall is a massive outdoor kitchen, with several smokers and grills. The Bartender also uses the smoke of the indoor fire to make Jerkey. He gets up onto the roof with the meat on strings and lowers it all down into the chimney.*

 

 

 

*Growing up our neighbor actually did this, which is where I got the idea.

Actually I'm used to using smoker/grill combo - a contraption with a fireplace and several "shelves" along the way to the chimney. This way on the first one you can grill, while on the others you can easily smoke. 

 

Something like this, but with cast iron hot plate on top of fireplace, so you can put skillet/pot/kettle on like on traditional stove :) (or put your hand on it for Riders of the Lost Ark cosplay).

From a prime fireside seat, Yeti watches hungrily as the meat smokes, mouth watering at the thought of fresh-made jerky, stomach rumbling as the breezes brings in the assorted smells of cooking from outside.

Cheetah saunters in and casually approaches the open campfire that's off to one side of the outdoor kitchen.  He pulls up a seat on a log, and from his pack he takes out some carefully wrapped dough and a thick wooden rod.  He wraps the end of the rod with some of the dough and begins to bake it gently over the fire.  Doughboys, anyone?  I've got plenty to share.  :-)

Nova wanders in and asks the barkeep for the never ending coffee cup he found for her a while back, pumpkin spice cold brew, of course.  She also enquires about any trained monkeys that might be looking for work answering emails that contain questions whose answers can be found in the directions of her assignments that her students apparently aren't reading, as this has begun taking up the bulk of her day at school.

 

I'm gonna find the dark corner with the bed in it and take a nap.
