SledNeck, I suspected that was the origin, but almost had to ask you out of curiosity! I have always liked snowmobiles (had many motorcycles), just don't live in the right locale.
I chose my screen-name from chasing what my wife considers to be the perfect steak: meteorite crust with rare center. Grandscale mentioned this as a Pittsburgh style, and I noticed in BBQ USA that Mr. Raichlen grew up near there (Don't have the book here, hope I'm not mis-quoting), and that his mother could whip 'em off the grill like that.
So IronWolf, are 3 pages of replies enough to let the cat out of the bag?
