Well... lets see here... I just finished a killer pastrami Rueben which I would not have ever known how to make if it wasn't for you folks... In the past year and a little I have met a bunch of great people who I would do anything for... I have had the opportunity to cook at comps with some seasoned veterans (and have learned more than I can say)... I have talked on the phone with people from coast (including the coast of Hawaii) about my passion (Q)... I have prayed for and about people I have never actually met but care a great deal about... I have met and welcomed into my home a man that puts an unreal amount of time, effort, and funds into this place (but can't fish for chit)... I have learned more about techniques, recipes, and methods of smoking great food than I had in the previous whole bunch of years... I am part of a competition team that I love being with and competing with.... I have made friends with several people who I ask to send me something and they send it knowing that the check is actually in the mail without ever asking... Dang, I think I will go and make another donation.

I appreciate you all and hope that anyone who stumbles upon us has half the fun that I have here...
