Guys, thanks so much for the support!
One quick bit of clarification: It's not a tell-all book about the Brethren (maybe the next one should be!--there's PLENTY of material for one).
My one story that prominently features BBQ talks about the Royal and my less-than-stellar performance at my first competition, but it only mentions one Brethren by name (Ryan a.k.a KnuckleHed_BBQ). The potluck mentioned was the Grand Poobah's Brethren potluck party, though not specifically named as such.
