Thanks for your very kinds words, Podge. Given the success you've had, your comments mean one heckuva lot.
The goal with my blog, and the "Competition 101" series specifically, is an effort to give back some of what I've learned and to spread the love of live fire cooking.
P.S. I've added "and religiously abide by them" to my "Know the rules
backward and forward" line. Thanks for pointing that out.
