"As viscous as motor oil swirled in a swamp, redolent of burnt bell peppers nested in by incontinent mice and a finish reminiscent of the dregs of a stale can of Coca-Cola that someone has been using as an ashtray. Not a bad drink, though."--Excerpt from "The Moose Turd Wine Tasting" by T. A. Nonymous

Personal Notes:
Personal Notes:
Our family used to visit Door County every other summer. We always enjoyed participating and eating at their outdoor fish boils. This recipe is about as close as I have found to duplicating the taste. I am sure that not cooking it outside over a wood-burning flame and not having a piece of cherry pie for dessert, definitely takes away for the total experience!
