Iím another retired military type, did 22 years as EOD still can count to 21 with my jeans off. Never really joined the Army just showed up for every war that they offered. Fell in love with Q when I was in Texas around 1966 or 67. (No I was not in the military then I am just 44 :roll:.) Never could get it where I was living in California. So for the last 30 plus years I have been trying one thing or another to get the very best that I could. Had many Germanís fighting over the stuff that I was making there. We live in Virginia and have a place in the Blue Ridge foot hills, plus one outside of Richmond (for work). Love to Have Yaíll up here for a cook out any time of the year. :roll:

Welcome, brother Trout. I got a sister in law living in Arlington. Some of us are newbies at Q, but no less passionate than the veterans. With your experience I hope to learn a thing or two from you. I've certainly learned plenty hanging out here and I hope you can pick up some new tricks, too.

As well, you are welcome to come by the Twin Cities for a smoke session.

Sgt. Hulka is a pussy!

You guys need to ask Trout how to surgically cut wood :D Det cord and PETN were handy now and again. Saw a real BBQ/HE demo at Bad Toelz once upon a time.

I've cut down more then my fair share of trees with a few inches of det cord. Problem is you never have a place to light the grill on the battle field.

In the field? Garrison use so that the engineers could maintain proficiency. At least that's what I heard the SMaj. told the IG.

No way, he ain't that good.

Sgt. FarkingUp would be a better handle for him.

My First Grandson Shaw Matthew was born at 5:21 am wish I could go see him but I have 20 pound of brisket and 30 pounds of butt in the smoker. In fact I was about 3 sheets to the wind when my wife called to let me know. My daughter told me that he is ready to go fishing and learn how to BBQ. I guess I will have to learn to make BBQ baby food.

Good Move on the foiling. Q will be even better when ya get back.
Ain't no minimum age. Just keep him out of the "WoodPile" and "Jokes" for a while. :lol:
My "Little Jackson" only lived 3 weeks, but he is a "Baby BRO" to all of us.
If ya get him registered, I think you would be the first DAD/GrandKiddo members here :lol:
I think "Jacksons Dad" and I are the first DAD/Kiddo members. Not for sure.
Now, "pull" that Q and hug that GrandKiddo!

Like I said, not sure. I stand humbly corrected :oops:
Now, If I can just get Stacey off his butt and picking up one of those great NB Bandera deals at Academy--I'll be happy.
Even when the Kiddos are over 30, ya still gotta prod and poke. Or is it just me?
Be back, gotta call him up and prod :twisted:

Nope! I got a 23 year old former Marine that boomeranged back home. He's got a polygraph up in the DC area in a couple of weeks and if that goes well I will have my garage back -- he's now residing in the garage :D We even installed an a/c unit in there.

Sheesh, dress 'em up, buy 'em books, send 'em to school -- whata ya get? A grown child living in the garage and eating your food!

A Marine living in the garage with an AC? That's like a presidential suite! :shock:

David--ya don't suppose this has anything to do with the quality of your food/Q?
Maybe ya should mess up a load or two and he might go lookin' :lol:

Just got back, they say the kid looks like me, poor thing he will have to fight off the ladies.:lol: Pulled the pork ya all were right best damn pork I ever made. The brisket will have to wait until tomorrow. :cry: Thanks for all of the advice and good thoughts Iíll let you know how our first fishing trip goes. I wonder if they make a fly pole that a 1 day old can use? Or is that another project? :idea:
