    Common abbreviations?

    I often have no idea what the various abbreviations being tossed around the forum are. What the heck is PPP? Pulled pork something? I get not wanting to write "Pit Barrel Cooker" three times in a post, but the first time I saw "PBC" all my brain could come up with was "Peanut Butter Charcoal", and while that was an amusing thought, I was pretty sure it was wrong.

    How about a sticky post where common abbreviations can be posted as a reference?

              Hell, my screen name is an abbreviation. Two points to anyone who can figure it out WITHOUT using Google.

              (hint: It might have been "bofca" if handles had been common on usenet back in the 80s.)

                I'm a bit surprised the IT types here didn't get the reference to the BOFH.

                B*****d Operator From TeXas. (Huskee gets an honorable mention, though. )

                  Not lying when I say that I have no idea what the asterisked word is, and I've been working in IT for 15 years.

                  Googled. Apparently I've never encountered an unpleasant operator

Although it is not certified as all-weather, we have tested it outdoors in Chicago weather and it has not delaminated in three years, but there is minor fading.

              Our Favorite Backyard Smoker

              The amazing Karubecue is the most innovative smoker in the world. The quality of meat from this machine is astonishing. At its crux is a patented firebox that burns logs above the cooking chamber and sucks heat and extremely clean blue smoke into the thermostat controlled oven. It is our favorite smoker, period.

              Masterbuilt MPS 340/G ThermoTemp XL Propane Smoker


              This is the first propane smoker with a thermostat, making this baby foolproof. Set ThermoTemp’s dial from 175° to 350°F and the thermostat inside will adjust the burner just like an indoor kitchen oven. All you need to do is add wood to the tray above the burner to start smokin’.
