I believe it's Phlip's acronym, and stands for Ultimate Urban Yankee.
I don't normally think of myself in those terms, but sometimes it
becomes more apropos than at others. In the whole marshmallow-
toasting field, I'm one of those people with a lot of good theory,
but not a lot of experience. Most camping activities, I find, take
valuable time away from fishing ;-).

Well, we never did really get to discuss Twinkies or Mario Nebbits in
depth, so it's understandable.

I'd like to try real ones, made with actual marsh mallow goo... I
have never in my life even seen a s'more up close (I saw one being
made once in a movie called "The Sandlot"), let alone tried one...
But I'll see your s'mores and raise you a warm pain au chocolat.
