No poisonous snakes, only the grown tree snakes that are only harmful to little kids and small pets. They still don't like us here but they've come to not start as much sht with us.

As far as hunting, it's pretty much off limits now to most military unless you know someone. The island is very political and they only like to help the "parees" which is firend/family in English.

Please let me introduce myself in this post about Guam.  Retired Air Force, spent 2 years on Guam. We lived in the capital city of Agana right near the water which was about 300 yards away.  Our landlord was Jesus AGogo and it took forever for him to finish our ground floor concrete block apartment.  There was one floor above and it was occupied by a Navy couple stationed at the naval base.  In those days we didn't even BBQ w/charcoal.  Have just graduated from gas to smoke.  Have done charcoal in the past but just found out the wife does not like the taste of charcoal.  So far have done a rack of ribs on the Old Smokey with hickory chips that never completely burned and a boston butt on the MES 30 that was done to slicing temp..with  a commercial rub using the ANMPS that we are still eating now with BBQ sauce..  Guam , in retrospect, was a hoot (and a holler). yes, a very special experience.  A number of years later, while on a temporary duty assignment, we landed on Guam and again experienced the intense humidity of the island/atoll.  Actually their native foods are quite good.

 

Enjoying the forum and finding it quite informative.

The locals can be good or really bad, depending who it is. I enjoy my time here as much as I can. I smoke a lot and just try to relax and enjoy the weather.

A lot of people here done use charcoal either, they use a special type of wood. It seems to be pretty good and it gives it a distinct flavor.
