A bit of searching for Ed Duncan Bativia NY rochester.rr turned up
Briar Patch Forum, which if I remember right is the new forum he
choose when his access to alt.smokers.com
went snarly for some technical

This is the url.
On the home page, on the left and a little way down there is a
search box. Enter Ed Duncan there, go through their little
routine, and you should find recent posts from him.
