I have met the most incredible community in the world. I love all of you and at times been in conflict.
I have learned, and hope I taught and helped. I am going to mention a few names and that scares me, because I know I will leave someone out.
AZRP and Lawn Ranger are 2 of the best friends I have ever had in my life. I do love you guys like brothers.
Max and Nature Boy helped me out when I was an infant. Woodoggies never saw a egger he didn't like to hug. Hatch is great. He is so bad in a good way. To the new ones. Pat, Steven, Poot, Sparky, Gene, Ron, Fidel (we should have met years ago), WessB, Kim, Todd, LC, Bubba Tim, Anna, Julie, Pete. I don't have the words.
Snoop and Brian, you gave me courage to challenge myself when I had no fight.
BBQ Beth is no longer around. She was the only egger that listened to my show when I cooked and won a huge contest on a radio show. Thanks Beth.
I met, fell in love with my soulmate. Due to health reasons I will never see her again.
The Filly, aren't you glad I talked you into IEC. Egret, Bruce and DOW, it was so close. Kari you and Jon have a place in my heart to.
Cookin Biker and Ripem, thanks for making my parents welcome at their first and maybe last fest.
Chubby, your just a mess. LOL. Tom, I hope to have you beat me in golf one day. KSU does own Texas.
Brian Marr, nice work on the videos. Even 3 years late.
Rebbeca, your skills are very good. Quit hiding them. Don't quit saving lives.
Dhuff, my spritual advisor. I should have listened more. It is hard to leave the only thing in the world that loves you or you love. Keep those rib painters in line.
Stike, I want to age a 72 old steak and watch you eat it. LOL And keep it down.
Spawn is so fun to cook with.
I will never be able to thank everyone with Kaleigh. I did she her the other day for a second. Things have not changed much.
I didn't forget Molly, Smokin Todd at my first eggfest.
This is getting long. Sorry.
I know I forgot people. Like Mickey, hornhook, ect.
This place is great for everything.
I need all the help in the world with my new endeavor.
Thanks for taking the time to read.

  • stike is dead...

    anyway... 12,000 posts? i could rip that off in a weekend.

    three of my personalities have 8k each, plus the 14k for "stike".

    but 12k is a nice start!

    (i'll split that 72 day steak with you, but only after we have some of bobby-Q'd room temp chicken. we can check the internal with the BGE dome thremo. it should be accurate enough

    Great Post Mike. But, I still think you are weird for putting mustard on your ribs. B)
    Glad to be on the friends list, and looking forward to pics of the Grand Opening.
