    Nature Boy,
    Had the pleasure of meeting the Juggy team at Raytown. Both dad and son taught me a lot. Great people!!!
    Good story Juggy. Do we dare dream of the Royals in post season play?[p]CWM

  • Wise One,
    So...sort of a nickname to my handle? Just might do it. Especially since my Egg has arrived and I'm sure I will be posting lots of comments/questions soon. C in C

    Cool! I always 'assumed' it was a play on ravenous.... y'know..a hungry bbq guy!

  • Toe 49,[p]As the name suggests, I like potatoes. Always have and always will. Anyway you serve them. Fried, mashed, stuffed, julliened, boiled, blanched, hashed, smothered and covered, grilled and barbecued. In a boat, on a train , in a plane, anywhere, anytime. Carry out, picnic, in transit or in the hot tub. Dan Quayle can misspell all he wants, it only makes me want more. What Bubba was to shrimp, I am to potatos. Have always been called Tater.
    Nice thread.

    Wise One,
    I was wondering how that happened also. When I first tried to post, I didn't enter my name and it came back "error" and I corrected it--maybe that had something to do with it?

    Toe 49,
    I used to be a truck driver and I've had this handle since using BBs's in the mid 80's. Gave up driving 6 years ago but kept my online nick name.

    Toe 49,
    Think this is the one of the longer threads I have seen here that was all positive!! Good on ya Toe![p]I was introduced to this forum by WooDoggies - an old friend from NC. And when I got to thinking of a name to use - Cap'n jumped out - it was my nickname at the pub at my grad school out in Phoenix. My last name is Morgan and I used to drink rum a lot - hence the name.[p]Cheers,

  • StumpBaby,
    thank god you're back. . .i was holding down the humor section all by my lonesome, and lord knows i can't spin poetic like you can. . .and my wife and kids don't have as much hair or as many toes as you do. . .although my cousin effie-mae does have big goiter that hangs like a football from the side of her neck. .. [p]missed ya pal!!

  • Toe 49,
    mine came to me as obvious. . .my real name is max. . .i always loved the 'mad max' movies. . .and really after the chase scene in "the road warrior". .. my next favorite was the big fight in 'beyond thunderdome'. . you know "two men enter, one man leaves. . .two men enter, one man leaves". .. [p]anyway, 'mad max beyond eggdome' just had a great ring to it for me. .. .[p]

    Toe 49, My favorite food is Beer and my first name is Mike. I began brewing my own beer about 10 years ago and just can't stop brewing it and drinking it. I have at least 2 kegs on tap at anyone time. I noticed I drink a lot more beer when it's on tap. My wife thinks I am obsessed with beer. I purchased my large egg about 1 1/2 months ago and my wife thinks I am obsessed with the egg (and the forum). I think I might try brewing a batch using the egg. Has anyone does this before?[p]BYO beer, BeerMike

    I think it's time for another beer!  Beer drinking (legally) since 1984
    BGEing since 2003
    2 Large BGEs
    Sold small BGE and 3rd and 4th large BGEs (at wife's request....sad face)

    Toe 49,
    Hmmm... I am very active in out local construction trade and I handle most of the residential construction financing for our county. One day, a group of contractors and sub contractors were having a trade association meeting and we began to share Nextel numbers. I'm not on nextel so everyone had to program my number into their phones a little different. One of the contractors suggested Banker John because it had a special "ring". The name kinda stuck. [p]Banker John

    Toe 49,[p]Great thread indeed!! This kind of thing sort of helps "fill in the blanks" for the long, and short timmers alike here on the Forum!![p]As for me.....Well in the "old days".... I was known to eat a bit!! I grew up in the Midwest, (Southern Indiana and St Louis).Barbecue was known to be a particulair favorite of mine![p]At the drop of a hat... I'd throw a scare into a rack or two of "Spares"!![p]My buddies swore that anytime we'd happen across that "Sweet Hickory Smoke" risin'....I'd "Pop a Chubby"!! Now....for those of you who know what "that" means...well, there's no further explanation required!! [p]Were they right.......??? Maybe so....But I'm not tellin'!![p]I'm not the threat I once was to large ammounts of Pork Ribs, but..."They still call me Chubby, and any of the fine folks here are welcome to also"!![p]

    I spent most of my money on good bourbon, and bad women...the rest, I just wasted!!
  • Toe 49,
    Mine is a tribute to my grandson Jack who died almost 5 yrs ago. I also make a chili rub that I sell to my freinds that I call Jack's Chili Rub. No plans on going commercial yet but everyone says I should. Anyway I felt it a good way of remembering him(like I'd ever forget). He was named after me in a fashion being that Jack is a nickname for Jon. That's my story anyway
    Stay in the smoke

  • Toe 49, I used to have hair on the top of my head, went in the army and came out with none. friends started calling me slicktop. bald and proud.

    Toe 49,
    Well having the name Mike Love and being 6' 4" tall and weighing in at 285lbs, I've developed those things above the hips called "LOVE HANDLES" Could a diet be in the future?

  • Car Wash Mike, To quote the anthem cried in 1985, "You gotta BELIEVE!" I can't believe I am saying that as I still bleed Cardinal Red. Even though I have worked for the Royals since '93, this is my first year of being a true blue Royals fan. I listen to the Royals on the radio now instead of the Cardinals. My Grandpa Juggy is rolling over in his grave..........[p]Thanks to everyone regarding their kind words. I haven't been on line much the last six weeks and I have had limited time to post.[p]BTW Mike, if you got time this Saturday, come on up to the 'burg. Dad and I will be cooking in the Johnson County Fair KCBS BBQ Contest. Show up around noon, sample what we have cooked and help us decide what to turn in. :-)[p]Beers to all,[p]JDB - Juggy D Beerman
