That is very cool. I hadn't heard or seen that. Amazing that someone who makes a living selling them would help people lone them. I'll have to go looking for some of those old threads.[/QUOTE]
I dont know as that there was any real threads with Stump . I think Stump helped Jim then Jim started the forum. I can tell you that on occasions Stump has commented on different aspects of the building process.He may not tell you exactly where you need to be but he steers you that way. I have had a conversation or two in private messages on Prairie BBQ with Stump and I have the utmost respect for Stump and his cookers. If I ever get down that way I am taking the time to visit. Any one who can make a living out of building cookers and paying employees to do that in this economy gets my best wishes be it Stumps ,Backwoods ,Spicewine or any of the few doing it full time.
