22 yrs in US Army and retired at rank of SSG. Since I like to smoke various foods some friends call me Grill Sergeant and I guess it is fitting.

Love, Peace, and Bacon Grease!
I love this one !!!

Great Screen Name!!

When you get a chance, Sarge, Please go to the "Roll Call" section & introduce yourself, so you can be properly welcomed.

Small world Bear.

I was in the Army and with the 9th Infantry Division in the Mekong Delta 1969-1970.

When the 9th redeployed back to the states (World) as I am sure you remember, I stayed with the 3rd Brigade of the 9th and moved to Tan Ann Provence.

Absolutely I remember. All the guys who wanted to stay, for an early out or whatever reason, moved to the 3rd brigade, and stayed. I still had 21 months left, so I would have had to stay in 'Nam for another 10 1/2 months to get the early out. I figured that would be pressing my luck & got the Heck out !! Left on August 19, 1969.

Welcome Back Harv!!

IntegrityBBQ- I feel in the mainstream BBQ world most restaurants have bad quality meat and ingredients.  I believe that great BBQ can be achieved with local fresh ingredients with out high fructose corn syrup in sauces or sugar in rubs.

I used to like the cold, but it's getting old as I get older. It's 14* right now, and if I could I'd send you plenty!

Hi everyone, like most people on this forum, mine is a nickname, Monkey. It's from a British TV advert advertising tea. I used to repeat it to people, hence being called Money, so stuck Smokin in front of it, to quote another British TV advert "simples"

Simple for me. When I was joining last week the back yard where I was smoking was a frozen mess. Just kinda seemed organic from there.

Mine was a play on a place of employment that I loathed. I spent some time working for a company that proccessed apple products; juice, slices, sauce, that sort of thing. Tree was in their name, I had come to the conclusion that anyone who stayed at that place had issues and the treetard was born. I have since moved on to more gainful employment with a far better atmosphere. The name however kinda stuck.

"Bow" was a name given to me back in the day while in the NAVY by my cohorts... It is the first 3 letters of my Last Name...

...and yes, there was plenty of adult beverages in circulation that fine evening when I was "Knighted"... after that, it seemed like everyone called me "Bow" from my co-workers to my Commanding Officer!

The joke is that my wife and I dated and it took for 3 weeks for figure out my first name wasn't "Bow" ;)

"-chan" is like a term of Endearment in the Japanese Language, so my wife/friends call me Bow-chan...

Normally I use "Bow" as a forum name, but since the SMF requires more than 3 letters, I had to go with Bow-chan...

I headed up a 4 yr. project to start-up the S-Moipa chemical plant. For stress relief I started Geocaching and needed a handle, hence the name Moipaman.

Ever since the old Disney show duck tales came out  89-90ish all my lady friends called me bubba duck then got shortened to bubba.

My last name is Stump, so Bubba Stump was born, Then when I was in the navy Forrest Gump came out and since I was the cook

at all my buddies get togethers  it took on a whole new meaning cause I cooked food many different ways but never even dreamt of smoking food, till my buddy got me into it.

I get to smoke food for the guys and gals at the firehouse and they love it.

I got my screen name from my son when he was about 14.  We were getting ready to go hunting a few years ago and I told him to make double sure he had everything on his list and he said okeedokeesmokee and I had forgotten about it until I signed up for this forum and when it asked to create a screen name that popped into my head!
