I cannot adequately put into words how much I've enjoyed this forum, and to that end, egging, this year. It seems like a lifetime ago that I had a crappy char-broiler gasser and I didn't know anything about T-Rexing, spatch-cocking, indirect cooking, MAPPing, Elder ward, nature boy and dizzy pig, wess and sally and their tiki hut, stike and his drunken lunches, djm5x9, max and spawn and their kindness thru the holidays in helping challenged turkey cooks (and every other day for that matter, tnslagemater and his help, yb, carwashmike, BGEWDE and his great new butcher shop, Woo-doggies, stumps of any kind, molly shark and thermapens, check the archive,, Naked Whiz, Bobby-Q (when are you gonna offer me a job?), 57th fighter, Spring "insert message here" Chicken, Qsis, Jwirlwind, Eggvis, Sigmore, Pigasso, Pakak, Jappledog and anyone and everyone else I've left out in this message.[p]I cannot imagine learning to cook better food from nicer people anywhere. Period. [p]My family and I wish you a Happy and prosperous New Year.[p]Todd

    I second that!
    Its a great group here. Here's wishing you and yours all the best in '05.

  • Mark Backer,
    To those listed and not, to the handholding for us eternal students, to the feelings of being with friends on NYE without the drive or the hangover, and to all those wonderful meals and bellylaughs and caring and sharing...
    Thanks for sustaining us in 2003 and 2004, and here's to a safe and happy 2005
