No one should apologize for who inspires them. When I first started here I watched a ton of Donnie's YouTube videos and learned a crap load, especially after buying a small stickburner. Donnie knows his stuff and on multiple occasions has given me input on threads that was extremely helpful.
I've also been recently inspired by the work of Aaron Franklin and to a smaller degree stuff written ABOUT the Mueller family, Kreuz Market, Snows, Pappy's Smokehouse in St. Louis, etc etc. Every successful person or place can provide inspiration to us. Another huge inspiration to me is Neil AKA Bigmista.
Thank God for the Internet cause I wouldn't know snot about any of this without the brethren.
