Wow, what a fantastic read. I'm supposed to be catching up my budget right now so that I can determine if the purchase of a backyard Meadowcreek pit is economically feasible. But I can't stop reading this thread! Thanks Donnie...for taking everything I THOUGHT I knew about Que (not much really, and all gleaned from this site) and completely turning it on its head. I see now that my pursuit of good Que will now be a LIFELONG race.
Keep it funky Donnie!
