Big Green Egg - EGGhead Forum - The Ultimate Cooking Experience...
We’re feeling pretty super, how about you? The big game is fast approaching, and while we love football, we love an excuse to invite people over and cook even more! You too can cook like a champion with recipes from Dr. BBQ’s NFL Gameday Cookbook: Grilled Tuna Sandwiches from Seattle and Baked Brie from New England. Who’s going to win? You’ll have to cook both to find out.

The 17th Annual EGGtoberfest was amazing - here are the highlights Click Here

    I may have been when I posted, but it's a fresh new morning. Actually this post tied into the Obit post. As I was reflecting on life, being a Turtle was one of the things listed in my Obit. Haven't seen the correct answer to the question yet.

    The Turtle Creed: Turtles are bright eyed, bushy tailed, fearless and unafraid folk with a fighter pilot attitude. They think clean, have fun a lot, and recognize the fact that you never get any place worthwhile in life unless you stick your neck out.

    I was inducted into the Ancient and Honorable Order of Turtles many years ago. A lot of famous folks in the group.

  • I wear many hats. Family man, Egghead, woodworker and others I don't care to talk about. Turtle is not one of them.

    ok, i'm guessing Turtles are required to respond by saying:

    "You be your sweet ass I am"

    Is this part of your green oath?

  • All I keep thinking about when I see this thread is the "frightened turtle" Seinfeld episode.

    You bet your sweet ass it is. Astronaut Wally Shirra, on Mercury 8 live TV broadcast was asked the question by Deke Slayton in the control room. He was able to switch the mike from live to record so he could answer, and prove he answered correctly, without offending the TV audience. If a Turtle does not answer correctly, he owes everyone in earshot a beer.

    So when y'all meet each other, do y'all jump up in the air, high five and scream "TURTLE POWER"?

    Is the head guy's name Splinter?

    LOL, Shirra would have owed beer to several million.

    As a military man (Thanks for your service), you should be aware the Turtles were formed by WW2 fighter pilots. Originally a drinking organization (just like Eggers), 'A fearless and unafraid folk, with a fighter pilot attitude....' I was inducted by my Dad, a 20 year career Navy Veteran. The induction ceremony is pretty simple, and I'd be happy to test and induct any who may be interested. The only issue I see with this group is that Turtles are 'of clean mind'.
