    He couldn't have at least thrown some Shiner Bock in there? Makes me think that InBev and Toyota probably picked up most of the tab for that thing.

    Pretty cool piece of engineering, but I wonder if there are problems with the lids on those metal containers popping off and getting stuck in the drawer if he hits some bumps when driving.
    Also, I wonder why they chose such a compact bedded truck to start with: just think of what they could have fit if they used a full-sized bed.

    At least they dressed it up with some local texas jewelry.

    Nice work on the video though. I've been wondering about that little Canon: really nice that it has a crop vs a micro 4/3 sensor and that all of the DSLR glass should work on it. I can't stand doing serious photography without an optical viewfinder, but I bet it's great for video. I'm sure the lighter weight is nice when you're holding out in front of you for extended periods of time. You managed to keep it really steady, where you using any type of vidro grip or steadicam system?

    My understanding is that he packs a lot of the loose stuff inside the grill.

    The EOS M is great for video because of the auto focus and the stepping motor lenses. I have a 5d MKII which shoots great video, but the focusing has alwaysed been an issue when run & gunning. I do have the camera on a stealthy stabilizer.

    The camera has actully be pretty good for taking food pics with its f2 lens and touch screen focus. You just touch what you want to be in focus on the screen and it takes the picture.

    Denton is one of the coolest places in the world. I was there for a day or so a while back, and people bought the entire group I was with lunch just for being from out of town. Everyone we met while we were there went out of their way to make us welcome. I've been meaning to go back ever since.

    We were just in Denton for the holiday weekend. Had a blast.

    As for a Texan tail gate truck it is a nice toy, but the real deal for a Texan would be a pimped out trailer so the truck could actually be used to pull and haul stuff.

    Like this one......

    I think that this guy is a total douche. Quite arrogant, at least of what I have seen on TV (granted I have never met him, nor eaten his food). I mean hell, even on "the next iron chef" he was crap. just made a steak and made one for himself, thought it was very respectful. I am sure that many people here don't watch such tv but still, wasn't impressed.

    On a side note, I know that iron chef is staged and they get prep time to figure out their plan before the show, but I still watch it sometimes

    From what I remember what Chef Son posted about I.C. There is a possibility of 3 main ingredients you get to know a month before. (prep/menu time) At the time of the shoot, you get to know what the ingredient is. For many chefs that wouldn't be enough time for 1 little alone 3.
    Chewie's the man.
