    Let's see....I won the Large at Eggtoberfest in 2007...I think, could've been 2006. Anyways...then I was known as Mrs. AZRP. After cooking at our first fest, Mad Maxx, decided I needed my own identity. So, the following summer, he and Lawn Ranger, had a contest for people to submit different handles. I listed all my interests.....horses, female, live in the desert. Sooo....Desert Filly won out.

    Tampa Fl. About 3 years on the Egg. I put no thought in my name because I thought this would be like anyother forum and not post for long. I know wish I had a better handle with meaning.

Owned my first BGE since June of 96. Currently forced to live in Hollywood, Fl and South Florida. A friend of mine named me Bubba Tim when he saw all the BBQ smokers, grills, and fire pits among some boats that I was repairing in my 2 acre backyard. :woohoo: :lol: :silly: :whistle:

  • WoodbutcherWoodbutcher Posts: 1,004
    I purchased my first egg, an XL, a little over 2 years ago. Then I realized that 2 temps would be nice so I bought a medium 6 months later. The mini came home from Waldorf in 2008. I was born and raised in Lancaster, PA. I tend to make a lot of sawdust in my basement workshop hence the Woodbutcher handle.

  • BootlegBootleg Posts: 49
    I live in Evans, GA and have been an EGGhead for three years now. I started with an XL and just recently sold her and replaced her with a Large, Medium and Mini.

    While researching my lineage I learned that I come from a long line of Moonshiners/Bootleggers. So I thought Bootleg or Bootleg BBQ was an appropriate handle.

  • Little StevenLittle Steven Posts: 28,817
    Little Steven is a combination of of factors, my name is Steve although it is spelled Stephan, I am extremely short, I have a complete and utter lack of imagination for such things and a respect for Steven Van Zant, who is Springsteen's guitarist, host of semi underground radio show Little Steven's Underground garage and was Sylvio on the Sopranos. I have always wanted to change this handle but haven't been able to think of another.
    I have been egging for twelve years and have grown a bit of a collection.
    Born and raised in Toronto and live in Caledon, Ontario about thirty five miles north of there.
    In my 5 or 6 years active on this forum I have formed some extremely close friendships that I hope will continue for the rest of my life.
    My signature line is a quote from the novel Anne of Green Gables and I truly believe Eggers are drawn together as they are kindred provider personalities.

  • SqueezeSqueeze Posts: 707
    From Detroit, Michigan....actually Mt. Clemens, MI.....but transplanted to Florence, AL where I have been since June of 2002.

    Squeeze is my old High School nickname.....due to a football coaches mispronouncing my last name.

    Been egging for seven years and have only had to replace a gasket once and it was not because I "torched it", it was because it had so much food crud on it it was just getting nasty......
  • SqueezeSqueeze Posts: 707
    Man, I thought you were saying you hosted the radio show and was on the Sopranos.....dang, you had me all excited for a all is well up North!

  • vidalia1vidalia1 Posts: 7,092
    When I joined my first forum (it was a flyfishing forum) your handle had to have letters and numbers in it and you had to list your real name & where you lived.
    I am from Albany, GA originally but Albany1 sounded dumb. Everyone seemed to know Vidalia,Ga because of the onions so I picked Vidalia1.

    I have lived in:
    Albany, Ga
    Reno, Nv
    Miami, Fl
    Boca Raton, Fl
    Orlando, Fl
    & now Lawrenceville, Ga

    Mint Tulip & I have been married for almost 36 years. I am in the urgh, um finance industry... :sick:

    We have a large BGE that we got 2 years ago, a small which is 1 1/2 years old and a mini which is 3 months old (but previously owned by a good & loving family)

    We also just purchased minis for our son & D-I-L and daughter & S-I-L and they are loving them.

    Now where do you think my non-innovative handle comes from?

    Bought my first large in Atlanta at the old storefront on Claremont St. in Oct. 2001.

    Now have a large, small and Mini.

    Mine is easy.....a combination of my heritage and where I went to school. I'm originally from N. Carolina, but have lived in Florida many years now. Soon to be moving to the St. Cloud area.

    I've been egging almost four years now on a large and a small.
  • MickeyMickey Posts: 18,737
    Pato it took a lot of points for the small. They have stopped that now as no eggs from that supplyed the company doing the promotion.
    No more eggs on the internet now.
