    Dennis, I sure wish I had had the honor of meeting Rod. I've heard so many wonderful things about the man.

    I am so sorry for the loss suffered by his many friends and family.

    He did at one or two as I recall. Got a call for ribs too if I remember right.

    I talked to Rod about our dismal chicken in OKC. He gave me some ideas. A couple years later and a few tweaks and we nailed 1st in Chicken last October.

    Mike and Rod were the two guys I called when we did a competition to say how we did........

    I ate a piece of that chicken in that pic. We had been talking about competition chicken that morning and he ran a piece over to me to make sure I would taste it. -RP
