Been a hundred years (well not literally but it seems like it) since I've posted here thought I still brows occasionally. I've been digging through the archives for the past hour or so and found one of my first posts back in January of 2000, man it brings back memories. My wife got me my medium egg for a Christmas present in Dec. of 1999. Since that time, and I blame it all on the egg, I got into competition BBQ and have been cooking for several years in the KCBS circuit (Smokin' T's is the team name) and I also organize the Mt. Vernon, IL King City BBQ Showdown for the past 6 years. Comps are not done on eggs, we use an FE and a CTO for those, but I still cook on the egg quite a bit. Great to see this forum so active and even better too see so many new names on the forum. Just wanted to say hi.
