Hence my username Smoker808
Spent 54 weeks on Oahu, but I forgot which side was the windward side.
Windward side is from around Waimanalo to Kahuku. Seeing you were in the Army you may have been in Schofield or Shafter. Windward is the greener wetter side of the islands and the leeward side is more the drier side. Thanks for your service!
Yup---Schofield Barracks. Mrs Bear and I had an apartment in Waipahu, until On-Post Housing opened up. Used to like fishing for Tilapia right near the post. Liked the fact that there were NO Snakes on Oahu!!!
Simple. My favorite pistol is a 1911a1. I have my Dad's 1911 so I feel good about shortening it to 1911. A cute little 3" is always on my side whether grilling, smoking or whatever and whenever. Have been smoking and grilling for years. I now look forward to learning about the cured meats. No refrigerator/freezer conversion yet. Just watching all the fabulous doings here. :)
