Oops, error in the whiskey disclaimer! It was supposed to say "remember to always grill cheese safely." But I guess we also stand by what it says instead.

Hey that's alright, guy. I probably wouldn't have slowed it down to read all that stuff if you had not mentioned the error. That was funny stuff there. Now I can laugh with you (the jokes) and at you (the error) simultaneously!

Oh man I was going to pause it row by row anyways, but I'm really glad I read the comments before going back and doing that. Made me laugh a lot harder than I would have otherwise.

I loved the black and white infomercial shots. You know... That bizarro world where the simplest tasks rank alongside neuroscience. Anyways, that sandwich looks awesome and I'll probably have one before the weeks over. Personally what I like to do sometimes is get some shredded sharp cheese and put it on the outside of the bread to give it an extra cheesy/crispy exterior. You should try it sometime.

Hmmm, what a coincidence. I wonder if Randy Cleveland knows that the best grilled cheese sandwiches just happen to be in Cleveland? Cleveland, Ohio that is. http://meltbarandgrilled.com/

This video had some good tips. I like the tip about separating each layer with a layer of cheese. However I would use a different set of ingredients, like whole wheat bread instead, since my mild allergy to caraway in rye bread causes me to loose my "cookies".

It's heart attack on a plate but well worth the health risk if you don't mind waiting 2 hours for a table. At least you can while away the time looking at all the old LPs that the menus are printed on. "Hey, I used to have that record!"

Nice, my Mommy used butter when she made me grilled cheese.

Big boys use mayonnaise. The egg in the mayo does magical things to the bread.

Kinda makes you wonder...

Woot Staffer #1: "Hey we need to film a piece for the next video wootcast."

Woot Staffer #2: "Sorry, guy. I wish I could help, but I'll be far too busy making elaborate grilled cheese sandwiches tomorrow."

Woot Staffer #1: "...Brilliant! I'll bring my camcorder!"

I wonder if woot reimbursed him for the ingredients...

Awesome video. No matter what the critics say, stay true to your craft.

Mustard and Horeradish on grilled cheese? W-T-F is wrong with you people? That's the most hideous thing I have ever heard. Why don't you use driveway sealer and weed killer. It would taste better than the abomination you describe is this poor excuse for a Wootcast.

The look on his face at the end when he took a bite just screams how "delicious" that sandwich must have been. lol

That expression was the best part of the video.

While I must say I can't agree with the addition of mustard, horeseraddish, and tomato, I do applaud your cheese choice! Tillamook is the best stuff on the planet. Try using the vintage white extra sharp cheddar sometime. Amazing stuff, makes me so sad I cant get it in Texas

Do not follow me, I walk into walls!

I didn't have any horseradish so I used sauerkraut but it still worked out pretty well. I'll have to get some, though. The tomato is a great addition.

Whoa, whoa, whoa.

Tillamook cheese and butter AND Beaver horseradish?

Somebody like Oregon!

The real problem I have here is with the bread choice. The same guy who told us in "Peanut Butter Toast" that darkened breads had gone bad on the shelf is now eating rye bread? Or is it still light enough to be considered "not bad"?

It said Mel Gibson in the disclaimer for the type of people who shouldn't drink. hahaha

Simply hilarious and the look on his face at the end captures it all. Well done, Woot!!

Good concept, actually, mustard, horseradish & sharp cheese. Two thin layers of horseradish mustard (yum) would do nicely. Pretty sure the look on his face is due to horseradish overkill!

Looks like someone made a few too many bad life decisions and got banned from mom's grilled cheeses.

Great, now I'm hungry but I have no horse radish or whiskey.

Is semi-fake wasabi and dark rum close enough?

After extensive testing I've reached the conclusion that yes, it is.

Thanks, woot!, for encouraging my 13-year old male offspring to get into the kitchen. Too bad that podcast doesn't come with a maid service gift certificate!

Drink enough of the rum, who cares whether you have horseradish or even authentic wasabi?
