Using alcohol during cooking

Yesterday I slow cooked some pork ribs in the crock pot. When I put them on I used half a bottle of beer instead of water. It may just be me...but I think they tasted better than the last time when I used water.

I often use beer in cooking (and occasionally bourbon).

What about you guys?

Bourbon in BBQ sauce is excellent.

Yes...that is typically what I use it in.

I use alcohol, especially wine, in about anything and everything that it makes sense to use it for.

I don't like the taste of meat cooked with beer.
Not my thing, but since I'm not eating your cooking--go for it.

i like cabernet...fudge, not so much. but this does seem to be an interesting combo.

I'm not much for drinking wine...but I think I could cook with it.

I'm making chili with beer at some point this week.

Especially since my likelihood to consume alcohol while cooking is inversely proportional to the safety of the cooking. Cooking for just me and my wife on the stove using one pan? No drinking. Cooking on the grill for a dozen people? Beer please!

Many a beer have been consumed whilst I cooked.
