Thanks for the welcome.MY GOODNESS! ! !
I am awed and humbled by the warm and friendly welcome messages that you folks have posted in response to my request.. A couple of things that I need to clear up, though; since Iâ€™d rather not be denigrated when a thunderstorm spoils somebodyâ€™s BBQ/SMOKING efforts I think I should point out that there is a difference between METROLOGY and METEOROLOGY.. Metrology is â€˜the study/science of measurementsâ€™, this is people who test/certify the accuracy of measuring tools/instruments.. Meteorology is â€˜the study of the skiesâ€™; these are the weather prognosticators.. In my nautical career where I picked up the jargon, I was (when honorably discharged) avionics technician, AT1 (Avionics Technician, 1st Class..(E6))... Anyway, thanks bunches for the welcome, Iâ€™ll try not to rock the boat.. Iâ€™m almost virginal as far as Smoking Meat, so Iâ€™ll be doing a lot of reading and trying the 5-day course trying to learn enough to ask somewhat intelligent questions.
