Hi All,

I'm wondering if there are anyother EggHeads on here living in Newfoundland. I'm in Paradise myself and would love to arrange some kind of Newfoundland BGE CookOff, just for fun of course.

Any takers?

    BGE cook out on George St in St. John's would certainly be interesting. Yes, by! :woohoo: But I'd need to get "Screeched In". :lol:

    Geez, your weather is balmy considering Little Steven is in Ontario and Jackie is in the Peg. Lots of us Canucks here, not many Newf's, Hokie Smoker has a Newf, named Merle - nice dog. 

    Merry Christmas guys, and welcome to the forum - from the other Coast, Delta BC.

    Merle the Newfoundland is in North Carolina. But his Step-Grandfather, my mother's husband, is from London, Ontario who just happens to now live in SC. If the people Newfie's are as warm & kind as the Newfie dog, I'd consider visiting up north for a cook off.

    They are Hokie, warmest most down home folks you will ever meet. I worked in Cornerbrook, the Crossing and some other smaller places installing for Avalon Tel.

    Have been thinking that would be a wonderful trip even to the point of calling Little Steven one night for information. Sure hope it happens. Looks like they have those things we don't in Texas called TREEs.

    Many folks from Newfoundland/Labrador visiting the PNW comment that the ferry ride through the islands, from Vancouver to Victoria, reminds them of the Rock (a local term for Newfoundland), it does look very similar. My brother and sister in law are taking a 10 day vacation there this year. 
    There are no trees in some spots, Gros Morne is a UNESCO site, like Alaska - raw beauty.

  • Glad to hear from some fello Canuks. I have been to Newfoundland once and have dreamed of returning ever since. How cool would it be to tell people you live in Paradise? I am from Meadow Lake Saskatchewan myself and we consider it God's country up here, lots of forest and lakes up here. I egg all winter even at - 30. Merry Christmas to all and a Happy New Year.

    @meister5 Merry Christmas Meadow Lake! Love the north part of Sask, big difference from the prairie in Regina. Years ago did some work for SaskTel, Uranium City, Prince Albert and over in Alta at Lloydminster.

  • Hi All,

    I'm a born and raised Newfoundlander and have to say most Nlers are decent caring and giving people but I may be a little biased. ;-)

    The 'Rock' as some call it is a beautiful island off the east coast of Canada and boasts many wonderful facts. Cape Spare is the most easterly point in all of North America, Cabot Tower in St. John's is the home of the first wireless transatlantic communication, Gros Morne National Park and L'Anse aux Meadows have earned the distinction as United Nations Educational, Scientific and Cultural Organization (UNESCO) World Heritage Sites with L'Anse aux Meadows being the first North American Viking settlement dating over 1000 yrs ago, and of course George Street has the most bars and pubs per sq foot in North America. We like to party hard here on the Rock!

    If you ever want to know about this place or want to arrange a visit, drop me a line at jason.janes@nlinsider.com or follow me on twitter
    @NLInsider.

    Cheers!

  • Hi Canman1976, I buy everything from Bubbas Tubs in Mt. Pearl, tell Greg that Jason sent you and he'll treat you right. I make maple moose jerky frequently and I've slow roasted moose as well. If you can smoke, roast or bake it then there is a good chance I've had it on the BGE.

    I had to look it up:

    Newfoundland Screech is 40% alcohol rum sold in Newfoundland. Screech has a name that was once just a colloquial term to describe almost any cheap, high alcohol spirit, including moonshine.

    According to legend, screech was first created in the days of the Triangle Trade, when the same barrels were used to carry both molasses and rum, and were only occasionally cleaned. The barrels built up a deposit of strongly sweet sediment at the bottom, which was melted out with boiling water and either fermented or mixed with grain alcohol. This concoction, which is not even remotely like the modern rum, eventually became a marketing brand called Screech. It is now a mainstream, mid-priced rum.

    It's only 40% if you buy the commercial stuff. Maybe I'll make fish and brewis in Salado. That'll teach you

    Will have to ask the experts but, IMHO Newfie moonshine, poured into a recently emptied rum/molasses barrel is called swish, that's what you do with the stuff in the barrel, you swish it around. The high test regular government store stuff is Screech. Some story about American service men and their first pull of the high test rum made them screech, hence the name.

    I hope you don't have a spirit called "retch" ;)
