Elder Ward?

I've seen a lot of you mention Elder Ward. Does he have a web site were he doles out his wisdom?

    Nu-Guy,[p]Elder Ward is to pulled pork as Shoeless Joe Jackson is to baseball; both were legendary in their skill and accomplishments but both kinda disappeared after memorable moments.[p]Just kidding, Elder Ward hasn't disappeared. As far as I know, he just hasn't posted in a while. Last I remember, he posted a response to my question on removing labels from homebrews. And for you SAT types out there, my analogy is also a little faulty since Shoeless Joe disappeared in infamy while Elder Ward is associated with no such scandal. I won't talk anymore about intellectual correctness, though, since I fear this will draw off-topic rants and temper tantrums.[p]GFY,

  • Cornfed, Elder Ward has made me what I am today. Nah! I did that on my own unfortunately,, but he has helped make me a pretty cook in the butt area. I haven't heard from him in quite a while. He's been scarce'r than hens teeth lately.

    Well, ok. I'm alright with all that, but could you tell me if you have the EWPPR recipe?
    Tanker Tim's Egg Beans calls for it and it sounded pretty good.

    Hay Nu-Guy why don't you post a profile so we can all see who you are? I really like to see a guy who has a real thurst for knowledge. You will be d expert in no time. this forum is like the encyclopedia of Q knowledge. Everyone is sooo pro active when it comes to solving a problem. And everyone is the new guy once. Happy Qing[p]MAC

    Nu-Guy,[p]Sorry for being nebulous. I sometimes find myself speaking in riddles.
  • Nu-GuyNu-Guy Posts: 136
    I enjoyed the riddle. Keep 'em koming!

    I'd be happy do to a profile, but it would have to be a word picture. I don't have one of those neat digatron cameras or high resolution scammers. So, do I do a separate post? I don't want to violate the forum rules. I've read the rules and can invision a squad of eggpolice dressed in riot gear surrounding my deck. Their goal, to remove my egg and leave me with a wooden table with a large hole on one end. As they are departing and I wipe the tears from my eyes, to my horror, what do I see they've done....They brought back the 18 year old Sumbeam gas grill that I put out on the curb 6 weeks ago. Now is that one bad dream or what?

    Nu-Guy, use the "Visitor Profile" link at the top of the forum - while there are many profiles with pictures, there are also a lot with no pictures.

  • Nu-GuyNu-Guy Posts: 136
    Thanks Gfw,
    If I would only take the time to read.... Anyway, I got to the profile section and filled it out. They say it might take a day or so before it gets posted.
    Thanks for help.

  • Nu-GuyNu-Guy Posts: 136
    Followed Gfw's instructions and did the profile thing this morning. Guess it takes a day or so to post. While I was there, I checked yours and see that you are not very far away. I thought I smelled something good blowing in from the S.E. yesterdday!

    Nu-Guy,[p]No, he is sort of like the influengza. (Spelling?) He shows up when you least expect him and you may or may not like what happens to you. :~)) Some have referred to me as an prima donna and felt like I was dominating this site way to much at one time. "This aint your personal site to push your cooking methods." Therefore I have chosen to make a minimum inpact until he dies of old age. $^) I think I can out last him. ;) If by some weird reasoning only known to you or others you seek my cousel I can be reached at my e-mail address listed here and else where.
    Welcome to the BGE, Elders personal sounding board and we love new people. You really don't need me I have seen nothing but good sound advise since I became a silent partner.%^)[p]If you got em smoke em,[p]Elder Ward
