    That's Alton Brown. He has a long-running cooking show called "Good Eats" on Food network. He also hosts a few other programs as well. I think his show is pretty good, he teaches practical cooking, and makes it interesting by teaching it with science. Alton is pretty cool, and a legitimate gun guy.

    Yep, Alton Brown. Sometimes they call him "AB".


    His Good Eats show is great. He also had a show where he rode a motorcycle to different locales and featured the local cuisine. Seems like a good guy.

    That's really cool, I didn't realize he was a shooter. I like his shows.

    SCAR 17S, with all that stuff on it; depending on the scope I'd say he probably has well north of $5k in that setup.

    I guess that encounter with the giant squid really spooked him... :D

    'Never heard of the guy. And "Brown" is a pretty common name. But, given what he's holding, I'm wondering if he's any kin to Lt. Col. Robt. K. Brown (of SOF Magazine); or am I just imagining a facial resemblance?

    The guy also travels the country touring on a motorscooter. BMW, if I remember right! Met him in N.C. 3-4 years ago.

    I have been using some of his recipes for years. I made his mac and cheese for dinner last Wednesday.

    He's the successor to Graham "The Galloping Gourmet" Kerr, only with an early '70s "Doctor Who" production budget instead of a local cable access show production budget. He's hysterically funny. I hate cooking, but I can watch him all day.

    I learned how to make decent coffee from watching his show, which has moved from the Food Network to the Cooking Channel, although reruns are still on the Food Network.

    I knew Brown was cool, but this just drives his coolness over the top.

    He had a neat food tour on some heavy duty motorcycles.

    I thought he might be a gun guy from his knife display. He once went mushroom hunting and whipped out a Spyderco Police model to harvest them. Hmm?

    Then on his motorcycle show, he displayed some evil Benchmade tac knife to cut up some grub and ate it at knife point - said don't try this at home.

    You know the food shows can be very gun friendly.

    Anthony Bourdain has shot full auto in Cambodia with Ted Nugent, shot a hog, plinked and hunted. Ming Tsai - awhile ago, went birding and explain his semiauto shotgun. Anthony Zimmern hunted and went to Dillon and blazed away with a minigun.

    Way to go Alton!

    So, no one can mock my other hobby of fine cheese. I'm eating my way through the ACS award winners. I cut a piece at work with my tac knife! :D

    That's Alton Brown, a Beard-award winning author as well as the host of the best cooking show ever.

    The picture was posted on his twitter feed a few weeks back.

    I'm a foodie, and I thought he was cool before I saw this pic.

    He needs a new hat though, it looks a bit tight on his melon.

    I guess I'm "culturally deprived"; I don't have cable TV. I haven't watched any of the current food/cooking shows. 'Sounds as if I'm really missing something (seriously).

    But I certainly used to get a kick out of Graham Kerr. And, speaking of "celebrity chefs/cooks" also being firearms enthusiasts, I'd gar-on-tee that the late Justin Wilson ("The Cookin' Cajun") knew which end of the tube the round came out of!
