Here's another activity associated with Brussels Sprouts that you may want to atttend:

"Chomp & Stomp. The 12th annual Chomp & Stomp festival includes a 5k followed with beer for breakfast, four music bluegrass music stages, a chili competition and tasting, plus brussels sprout bobbing. Nov. 1. Cabbagetown Park."

AND look at where it's being held! Maybe they need to rename the neighborhood; if not Brussels Sprouts Town Park, at least broaden to "CruciferousTown Park."

This is NOT the one I remember, and it's actually for fried sprouts, but it's close! And it's from a master barbecue chef.

Review of Lovie's Barbecue in Buckhead from AJC:

If you only get one side (all plates come with two) make sure that it is the fried Brussels sprouts. Barbecue traditionalists may scoff, but these sprouts — dusted with Lovies' barbecue rub and given a quick deep-fry, resulting in an almost blackened look — are certainly worth a try.

@mhrackin: My wife and I will have to go there and verify the reviewer's comments, and report back

Sort of like a quest for the 21st century. Go forth and hunt your free-range sprouts, old friend, and may the farce force be with you!

@mhrackin: ... I did come across a recipe of sorts for Barbecued Brussels Sprouts!

The person who can barbecue the mighty sprout indeed deserves the accolade of "Sprout Master"

While i didn't have a chance to check out the Sprouts Market yet, i did come across a recipe of sorts for Barbecued Brussels Sprouts! It was not in the form of a formal reciipe, but rather embedded in a restaurant (3 star rated) that has them on the menu, and the reviewer said "Do not be put off by the name, for they are exceptionally delicious!

@mhrackin: ...carefully hand-tended as they grow, and free-range at that!

It's been a long time since I ate a free-range sprout :-)

By another strange coincidence (which seems to happen quite often in the Sprouts world), in the past few months, a new chain of fancy groceries of the produce persuasion has opened 4 stores in the Atlanta area.  The name is "Sprouts" and although I haven't visited any yet, my wife can hardly wait, and thus we will do so in the near future.  I suspect they have a grand selection of their namesake vegetables, all completely organic and carefully hand-tended as they grow, and free-range at that!  I expect to see bean (of many varieties), Brussels, alfalafa, and varieties unimagined before.  I will report back upon completion of the excursion.  This thread will NEVER die as long as there are sprouts to discuss, prepare, and enjoy!
