Ken, Iam a recent member after meeting a few of the guys at our first competition this summer. Your words are so true and I have been reading all of the posts about and by Scott and have to say this is something very special. I am a chef and grew up in Texas and thought I knew what BBQ was (maybe learn a few tricks and perfecto) but I now know and look forward to a lifetime of learning and friendship. I joined the site with my real brother (who is also my teammate and best friend) and have been on the site pretty much non-stop since. It is so much more than cooking, I know it sounds corny, but it is a way of life and an addiction that I really am glad I picked up. I hope to meet you as well as all of the brothers in person one day.
