  4. The Rhino is my favorite animal of all time!! ... it weighs 3 tons, runs 30 miles per hour and can see only 30 feet ... so the lesson for life is:
    1. We've got all the strength, power, and might to accomplish great things on this earth! ... (put into us by our Maker)
    2. We should be living life "at full speed!" ... not just coasting along!
    3. We should never be afraid of what we can't see ... if we're confident in our first 2 qualities ... whatever is in front of us beyond "30 feet" will need to get out of our way!
    I try to live my life with these principles in mind! ... thus "Rhino" ... for a handle (the other letters are my initials! .... [​IMG]   )

  6. Pretty simple. My name is Greg and I love to ride my 99' Harley Ultra Classic. Usually I use "Pirate" because its what my friends from the Patriot Guard calls me.

  9. Jag120 was a no brainer for me.  I've got a 1953 Jaguar XK-120 that I've been working on for the past 30 years.  It's in my sons garage now waiting to be worked on some more, mainly body, electrical and trim.  If it didn't have so much wood and aluminum in it I'd turn it into a smoker.  I'd get more mileage out of it.
     
  10. When I get into something I usually jump in all the way ( or as much as finances will permit ) and get totally captivated by the new interest and read and study as much about it as I can.. My wife never seems to get as pumped about my new adventures as I do but she sure does love the wings, ribs, and brisket I'm turning out now that I'm in to smokin' meat.

     I had wanted to turn out good smoked food for a long time but was too intimidated and confused by all the different arguments I had heard about barbequeing and smoking until I talked to some good old boys that got me really fired up.( Pun intended ).   I found this great forum and gleaned a lot of info in a hurry.   I decided to join and built a UDS and I have been getting a serious education from the posts on here ever since.  While I was building the UDS I was picturing myself finally turning out some good smoked food for my family, I could imagine being engulfed in a wonderfully scented big smoke cloud hanging over my smoker as I happily checked the temperatures of the meat and the smoker and waited for another platter of tasty meat to set before the family. So "Smoke Cloud"  was my choice. And what I imagined then is happening now thanks to all the help from the guys on this forum.
     
  11. Got a head shaped like a biscuit......seemed to work for me.
     
  12. well my old neighbor says im creative and sly but not very graceful lol and artful coyote was thus spoken one night while i was trying to jump whole hog into something i couldnt live without and trying to convince my wife i needed whatever lol...
     
  13. It's the brand of recovery equipment I use. I wouldn't buy anything else.
     
  14. I started out roasting pigs on a home rotisserie (Spinning) and now added smoking BBQ and there it is Spinning Smoke

    Mine is short for a place I spent most of my childhood.  Manzanita Beach.  It was the first thing I thought of when going on line for the first time in 1999.  When my wife started going on line looking for a screen name, one of my friends suggested Ladyzan and it stuck.  Together we are known as the Zans.

  18. Growing up in a family of 3 growing boys.  We all played sports and were good eaters. Dad would always say when food was served "Grab and Growl boys." Being boys that is exactly what we did.
