I just wanted to give a quick thanks to BigMista, Bigdog, MoKanMeathead, and singinBob who cooked under the Brethren flag this weekend at the Royal. I had not really had a chance to meat any of the brothers in person, so after i finished judging on Saturday, I just sort of dropped by their space to introduce myself. You guys really made me feel welcome, and I appreciate it. That sort of hospitality is what sets this forum apart. I'm glad to be a part of it.

daedalus, it was great to have you drop by and hang with us. We enjoyed you brother. I wish more of you would have come back on Saturday evening. I tried to redeem myself after the macaroni debacle on Friday. We had mac & cheese and jambalaya and some great que from Smokeindaeye.

No chit Glenn, I didn't even know you were there until I heard your call...

I'll be down your way after the first of the year looking for warm weather comps and to have Klose to some work on my cooker...

Sorry I missed Saturdays Brethrenpotluck, we started round 2 after the awards ceremony, then off to the hotel for a quick shower, couple hours of much needed sleep and back to the Royal at O'Dark thirty, shortly after midnite, early Sunday morning, for round 2.

Im home now, severe sleep deprivation has arrived, will post some pics when I return from zombie stage to almost normal state here.
Im still in major Wow stage from the entire experience.
I never thought I would ever get a chance to get to the Royal, all I can say is WOW!

Later

Thanks for putting on such a great party Friday night guys! It was great to meet many of the Brethren that were there, and eat some great food. I especially enjoyed the killer margaritas!:mrgreen:

Right back at ya Bro. I met Brother Wayne several years ago in Emporia and ever since then, he has been a good friend and a great representitive of what the Brethren is all about. The guy goes out of his way to be friendly to all and never has a bad thing to say about anyone. He runs a first class comp team and yet still finds plenty of time to relax and party. It was truly an honor to hang with this guys for the weekend and boy did they ever do the Brethren name proud. :eusa_clap Special thanks also go out to Singing Bob, his wife, Marty (who did killer pork by the way) and Heather. Heck, they even let me do a category: Sausage. I smoked a fatty of course. :wink: It was my first time doing a comp category and they all gave me plenty of help, esp. BigMista.

And speaking of the Big guy, it was truely a pleasure to be able to hang with Neil for the weekend. My favorite quote from him for the weekend was when we were at Oklahoma Joe's eating lunch and I suggested that we share an order of fries. He replied: "We didn't get the name 'Big' in front of our names for sharing food. :biggrin::biggrin::biggrin: And by the way, we each ate all of our own fries. :oops::mrgreen:
