Hey y'all,

First off, I want to thank Saiko for turning me on to this group. He and I work for the same company (we'll call it MonsterCorp to protect the innocent and not-so-innocent alike) and we met at a seminar and he was kind enough to let me know about this group. I've been lurking for a couple of months, and the knowledge I've picked up already scares me. Thank you.

I'm originally from Kentucky, but now live in suburban Milwaukee. It's a slightly different culture. Here folks think that the verbs "to grill" and "to barbecue" are synonyms. People talk about barbecuing brats. I guess in theory you could, but that's not what these folks are doing. My wife is a recent convert to the differences, and she is starting to understand why we have 4 cooking appliances in the backyard (NB Silver Smoker, Brinkmann water smoker, one Weber kettle and her Kingsford kettle), and she is threatening to buy me a Bandera as a Christmas present. God Bless that Little Yankee Girl of mine. I used to bury a pig for the Kentucky Derby every year, but since I've moved into her house and her name is on the deed, that ain't happening again anytime soon.

Thanks for the info and for a great site. Y'all take care.

Welcome, oh Brother of the Usinger Order.

I get up your way couple times a year, for Brats, and for a weekend at the Downtown Hilton. Had inlaws in Red Deer or something like that, little NW of the city (I think)

Glad you found us.

Who is Seiko?

We are almost neighbors. If you mean Brown Deer for where your inlaws were, that's just down the road. Brats are a right tastey treat, so the Cheeseheads got that right. Now if they can learn that mops just aren't for cleanin'...

I meant Saiko, not Seiko. My bad.

It was brown deer.

And Seiko likes to be called that.

Something about taking a licking.

The best thing that can be said about Tennessee Whiskey is at least it ain't foriegn. I applaud anyone who drinks American -- NAFTA and GATT be danged. Put me squarely in the Kentucky whiskey camp.

Where in Kentucky are you from?

Born at Fort Knox, grew up in northern Kentucky, the first line of defense against Cincinnati's southern expansion. Does the name Racer imply that you are from around Murray?

Sure, an engine for a bottle of sauce or 2 sounds like a fair trade. Sign me up!

Trying to figure if you walked East or West on the hill. Using a wad for balance that's original.

It's awful flat in this part of Wisconsin where I live now. Don't get much hill practice no more. My dad used to wear baseball spikes when he cut the grass back home the pitch was so steep.

Racer implies where the BS degree is from - hometown is Owensboro.

I hope you weren't influenced in your childhood with Skyline????

Saiko is a lurker.

Wonder if he needs nuts?

I ate more Dixie than Skyline. Chili in Milwaukee is Cincinnati-like with beans and served over spaghetti. I don't know much about the Brethren yet, but I know better than to start discussing chili, particularly the subject of beans.

I consider Fort Thomas to be my hometown. You boys from Owensboro know TONS about barbecue.

Welcome fellow MonsterCorp employee! This is employee number 21203072!
Good to see you finally introduced yourself :D
I was just up in Madison last week, next time I'll remember to call and we can hit a brew pub in Milwaukee, since I always fly there instead of connecting through Chicago (shudder).

BTW, that's not my real employee number, so don't try to order anything from the MonsterCorp website with it :wink:

You need to do a search on my posts ya goober. I've actually posted quite a bit in the last couple of months (23 posts in November and December so far). I mainly only keep up with Que Talk, since I don't have the 2 hours a day I would need to keep up with the Wood Pile. Sheesh, you guys are like a sewing circle in there. :D

Aebs, you want Skyline? I get cans of it by the case.

Spent 3 years of weekends in Cincy.

Little Chicago

I love that place.

Hope to retire there someday.
