  1. Well I live in the backwoods of Northern Michigan (snow belt) and use an old fridge for smokin. I even had a company name their smoker after me, LoL.
     
  2. My screen name is a play on words: 1) Living in The PNW, alder is my wood of choice, 2) When it comes to flavoring food, there is no greater alteration made than that produced by smoke!

  4. My screen name came about when I started out a Professional eater.  I go by wing kong, and I love to eat and do Triathlons.  While doing an interview on ESPN for Nathans hot dog eating contest, I was asked "Why would someone put there body through those to extremes.  I told them because I was a conundrum...the 54 is simply my HS and College football #

  8. I'm one of the newest members, on here, but I like this thread, and find many of the answers interesting.  My screen name is a direct reflection of who I am, and what I like to do.  I'm a Karate instructor, [​IMG]  hence the title "Sensei", or "Teacher", which is what we are called by our students.  Next,"Rogue", is just a shortened version of a screen name I started using on another website, "Roguewavetoo".  A roguewave, is a wave that comes out of nowhere, and will literally tip boats over; either sailboats, or power boats.  I wasn't the first "Roguewave" on the site, hence "Roguewavetoo".    Being the creative cook that I am, I always try to put my own spin on any recipe, just like a roguewave, only I do it in a positive way.  [​IMG]

    Back in the day, when I actually worked on the shop floor, everyone had a nickname. It was kind of a right of passage. Once you were named you were accepted as one of the guys. It seemed to give everyone on the jobsite the knowledge that you were easy to work with and would not cause any undue problems….When my time came up, one of they guys came in with a little small 2” tall Shoney’s Big Boy and said that it looked like me….and well that was the end of that….14 years later and a new position, the guys still call me ShoneyBoy!!!!! Since most of the old timers have retired, we have not been carrying on this tradition as much…..It’s sad to think about sometimes, but I have the memories and knowledge that these guys accepted me as a friend and coworker over the years…..  

     
  14. I live in a small town.  There are a few of us foodies around, but no place for us to get nice stuff.  No restaurant supply stores, no meat markets, no gourmet grocers--we were all getting frustrated watching the food network and not being able to get the ingredients they all take for granted.  So I started a blog (that reminds me...I haven't posted in FOREVER, eek!) based on the concept that we could create great dishes/meals with ingredients available at WalMart...and so the SuperCenter Chef was born...

  17.  I have always been a gearhead and I'm a bit of a Chevy nut. My first car was a '48 Chevy. After getting married our first car was a '55 Chevy. The '55, '56, and '57s  were known as "shoebox Chevies". I own a 1930 Chevy and the old chevies were called stovebolts.

  18. I looked deep inside my soul and meditated for a long period of time.

    Mine is a combination of Bubba and Bonehead. Both alone could be fitting, together it's dialed in.

    Or it's the last thing I typed before I stopped getting that "already used" message.
