    That was unwatchable. I hate when Alton does his schtick, but usually its brief and he gets back to the science. This was like an entire episode of bad acting and poor lighting.

    The lighting really messed it up for me. But I'll let them do the occasional "schtick" episode.

    Plus the fact that he has no idea how to make chili. Why roast your own dried peppers? Find a good local hispanic market and they alway have fresh ground chili powder. Why go through the hassle? At least he did not put beans in it.

    Maybe there in Chicago you cannot find a good Mexican market to buy fresh chili powder from? The place I buy mine makes it fresh along with a lot of other fresh items. It is a great place to shop.

    Well I liked the episode. Camp and corniness is what Good Eats is all about. Not sure what the point is starting a thread over a three year old episode of Good Eats.

    1) Not everyone lives near such places.

    2) It's nice to make your own. You have more control.

    That totally misses the point of Good Eats. Alton makes his own elements much of the time whether it be tortillas, sauerkraut or sausage. Will most people bother? Maybe not, but folks like me still watch for the education and (most of all) entertainment.

    I agree. I think he has said many times that he never buys what he can make. This is the ultrafine sugar and salt, his own mayo, tortillas. etc. He does buy puff pastry though.
