    With my screen name you know exactly what state I am from. I presently live in Bartlett, Tennessee a suburb of Memphis. Been smoking for a long time. I have a large grease dumpster that I have converted into a smoker. It has a potbelly stove in the bottom and the cooking grate is 18" from the top Very easy to control the heat. I was a general contractor sense 1968. Put out of business in March 30, 2002 when a drunk driver hit my wife and me in the rear. She has a high spinal cord injury and will be in a wheelchair the rest of her life. I am her caregiver, that is OK because she took care of me for the last 39 years. I work at home for a company selling private labeled, spices, sauces and rubs all over the country.

    a few decades ago, a few of us were sitting around, enjoying a left-handed cig, wink wink nudge nudge, and a mexican friend, with his eyes half shut, said to me,"i spanish, your name is Tomas"...and my little philipinno friend, also half eyed, said,"huh huh...To-Mosh"...since i was one to frequent the mosh pits...so ever since that get together, i have been called,"Mosh"...and since i now live in Denver, 303 area code, i am now...MrMosh303...simple

  6. I wanted people to know that I am not in the US so that they could hopefully understand why i need to ask so many questions. I don't know of anyone else here that has a smoker.

    I am also very proud to be Australian. I moved to the UK when i was 5 and always wanted to come back. almost 4 years ago i got a job transfer and my kids, hubby and I love it so much. I have a dream life, dream job and dream hobby (smoking).

    oh; and my name is Rachael

  7. I have had it fo almost 17 years , started when I needed a name for a hunting forum.

    i had been elk hunting for then a good 6 years at that time and i figured i was still like in the  first stages

    of knowing what the heck elk do.

    So here after 23 years of chasing those critters --- well i'm still learning.

  8. Nothing fancy here, my first initial (K) and my wifes first inital (L).  It actually started out as our first (joint) e-mail account and I've used it for several other accounts since then when I can't think of anything else to use.

    Well mine is sorta simple. I have been a car junkie for some time. Well I got married and wife wanted a 4 door sedan instead of the 2 door stick car I had, for the soon to come kid. That took 5 years. Anyway the criteria set was a 4 door car with a automatic. I purchased a 96 Impala SS. After several years of tweaking, lets say its not slow. :)

    I joined one of the Impala forums and needed a name "Fast 4 door ImpalaSS" became Fast4drSS. 
     
  10. Mine is pretty easy to figure out: first initial, last name.  Whenever I join a new forum, I spend a few minutes trying to think of a clever new name, and invariably say "the heck with it" and use this.  Much simpler, easy to remember.  I use my last name because my first name is fairly uncommon, so this actually affords me more privacy from search engines.

  18. Brian,

    My name ca,e fro, my Son, Wife and others one afternoon after I had completed smoking three butts, two pork tenderloins, 250 chicken wings and a whole leg of lamb that was thin sliced and served on garlic toast.

    Someone said that the Q was better than Piggy the Pig and my wife piped up and said no this Q is flat out Pig-A-Liscious and hence the name was born.
