    My favorite team is the Oklahoma Sooners. Live in Okla. City,OK I have a Large and a Small.
  • I've been an egghead for about 17 years! Perennial smoke is my handle because of my love for perennial plants - that I grow and sell at my garden center (Floribunda Gardens). Perennial also means recurring regularly - and I cook on the BGE a couple times a week winter spring summer and fall! I live in Oswego Illinois and host EGGwegoFest. The 2nd annual will be Sept. 26th and will be posted soon!

    Not yet, but will be trying a plucked Mallard and breats cut in strips and marinated in Terriaki and cooked hot and fast. Pheasant is great off the Egg. Then again, what isn't?

  • Eggerman1Eggerman1 Posts: 155
    Originally from Wichita, KS, now living in St. Louis.

    My handle is unoriginal and I am working on a new one. But this one came from when I had friends over and we called it an "Egger" and then some called me the "Eggerman".

    I have owned my egg for 2 years.

    I grew up in Los Angeles, but lived in quite a few places, NY, CT, and the hills of Northern VA. These days I live in LA but do some business and relaxing by the Creeper Trail in South Western VA.

    As a kid my dad gave me a bassethound. My dad created a world of hounds. He was the big hound, my mom was his houndes, and i was the puppy hound, well since he passed years ago I took the title.

    Got my EGG back in 2000, and have loved it ever since.

    Had many hats too. Owned a few bakeries, a few resturants, and am on my second bar/nightclub in Los Angeles. Oh and I also make some films from time to time.

    I reccomend Sidney Lumet's BEFORE THE DEVIL KNOWS YOU'RE DEAD.... that was one of mine.
  • PWisePWise Posts: 1,173
    That was one helluva film... in what capacity did you "make it"? producer?

    I have some breasts in the freezer, will have to give that a try this summer. No pheasants left, will have to wait till fall to give those a try. I am thinking I will have to try a whole mallard duck this winter. Let me know how your turns out.
  • rsmdalersmdale Posts: 2,472
    Ihave done pintail (spatchcock) mallard, whole teal(wrapped in bacon)I still have some snow geese to try, but have to think that one through.

    I've posted several times about it. It is something about the use of two platforms. It isn't a big deal but there are guys on here from Mexico, Great Britain, Germany, Oz and probably other countries as well. It would be nice to look at somebody's profile and know where they are from. It is only going to grow and it would make the incessant "Any other Canuck eggers out there?" posts be less necessary.

  • Sure it would be nice if it labeled people who are outside the U.S. as being in their country, but would not a simple solution (at least for the people who know of the problem) be to put what country they are in in their profile?
  • Little StevenLittle Steven Posts: 28,817
    Semolina Pilchard,

    I agree, and that's what I did.

    My name is Tom. I grew up in Leamington, Ontario. Went to school in London, Ontario. I now live in Ottawa, Ontario although I did live for almost three years in Paris France.

    The handle simply represents my love of cooking combined with the name of a cat that joined the household a couple of years ago.

    I have a large egg that is just over a year old. Like many, I have dreams of adding at least another.


    Charles is a mischevious feline who always has something cooking

    Twin lbge's .. grew up in the sun parlor of Canada but now egging in the nation's capital

    Lol, it is very true... I got out of the root canal chair and went straight to pick up my egg... Was on pain med when I put it together that afternoon... Seems like it worked, no problems so far... :)

    Hi Steve

    I have tried to change and it is not working. I have Canada as my country in my profile plus I have added it in my comments which now shows up.
    i see when I click on your handle your country shows the US as well.

  • iBeeSmok'niBeeSmok'n Posts: 270
    Hi Gary

    Thanks for the info I have been trying a few times to update with no luck.

  • RGBHVRGBHV Posts: 1,318
    I'm not a techie, but how hard can it be?

    There's a section in the profile that says "what country" if it defaults to the US automatically, why bother having the question?

    My 2 cents!

  • eenie meenieeenie meenie Posts: 4,393
    I am a radiation oncologist after a 15 year sojourn in Denver, I am now living in Dayton, OH where I grew up. I've been an egger for over a year now and still consider myself a newbie.

    I had a terrible time trying to officially register for the forum. Everytime I put in a request for a particular 'handle', I would get a message stating that the name was already in use. I must have put in at least 75 different names. I was so frustrated :( that I thought .......what name will ever be available. That old saying eenie meenie minie mo went through my head for absolutely no apparent reason. In a last ditch effort to obtain a handle I entered "eenie meenie" in the registration and again I was rejected. I e-mailed WKM after I found the forum feedback section and he officially reigstered me as eenie meenie. Finally, after weeks of trying, I was official. So even though it may not have been in my top 75 handle requests, it's now my handle. :whistle:

    Born and raised in southern Nevada.
    Transferred to Atlanta in 1974 with the fly by night company I eventually retired from in 2004.
    Bought my first large egg in 1995. It died a sudden death in 2004. Due to spousal hurry up; "I'm hungry it doesn't need to be seasoned". I admit I had ulterior motives.
    Bought my second large in in 2006. Bought a medium in 2007. The mini came along in 2008.
    I borrowed part of my handle from my brother who is known as JCinNV hence, JCinGA.
