Ladies and Gentlemen,

We just passed $1500 in donations!!!!

Thanks to all that donated in the giveaway. We have gotten a lot of great support. 

A special shout out to @stlcharcoal who is letting us purchase a MiniMax and a pallet of charcoal at a substantial discount, @RRP who offered a very generous donation as well as a Rutland gasket set, @Mickey for getting the ball rolling on this and "The Mother Ship" who contacted me this week suggesting they may have some goodies to toss in as well. 

Edit: I am waiting on two teams to get back with me on deployment transportation and ETA on deployment dates. We will get some pics of the Winning Donation group in a few weeks. 

Now. The official Contest Winner. 

Prizes will be paid out of my own funds, not donated.  So no saying no.  You may choose between the following options:

1) A Rutland gasket and a Smokeware cap. 
2) A Dizzy Pig or Meat Church surprise pack. 
3) A Kickash basket of your choosing
4) ...let's just call it Door #4. It could be a disappointment, it could change your life. (That line killed in college)

AND THE WINNER IS...

@JRWhitee !!!  PM me for your choice on prizes.

    cool - but I'm confused...I thought the Rutland gasket plus the Permatex I donated was going on the M/M before you even sent it based on what you told me via PM. Oh well...if the winner gets it for their door prize then please give them my email so I can explain the application. OK?

  • @RRP That gasket is going on the Minimax

    If he chooses a gasket and a Smokeware cap I will pay for whatever one he wants and have you ship it to him.

    He's giving another gasket plus a smokeware top out of his own pocket. Yours is going with the minimax.

    No - I won't accept your payment - I just want to double down if need be on this effort. OK?

    The MiniMax and pallet of charcoal from us is at our cost.......I was going to throw in some eggessories but we'll wait to see what BGE is donating so we do not duplicate.  I doubt they'll need a cover or SW cap to keep the rain out!!  Count us in for some rubs, sauce, etc out of out store.

    May want cover to keep sand out.  It gets in everything and everywhere.  Just a thought.  Not sure where they will keep the little fella.

  • @JRWhitee you're not winning the Stanley Cup this year for sure. Go Preds. I still have my fingers crossed for our scrappy little go-getters. 

    Just shoot me over your decision and I'll send it your way!

    Just sent you a PM. The Preds beat my Blackhawks so I am pulling for them to win it all.

  • Ok guys I am back. Sorry I had our church Veterans Group post Memorial Day dinner tonight. Just kicked the last of the crew out the door. 

    Responding to PMs now. Here are some burnt ends, brats with pretzel buns, and Moink balls to appease the masses.
