    I was fortunate enough to have met him once. My first fest and afterparties. I got to try his great ribs and the late night shrimp. He will be missed.

    The 'Car Wash Mike' name will live on forever.

    Can't say I knew him, but I've heard of his rib method. Sounds like he was a class guy. RIP brother. Hate losing quality people.

    I don't post as frequently as I used to. But CWM was very helpful to me in my early days as an egger. He was funny and colorful. (Does anyone have a pic of his onion burger? He posted it so often, it was banned from the board.)

    This is tough to take. I send thoughts and prayers to his family and friends.

    I'm a newbie egger and in the short time I've been a member of the forum, I have grown to view Carwash Mike as one of the most well known and respected guys in the grillin' game!! My prayers are with his family and friends. RIP CWM!
  • Being new to the forum, I had not had the pleasure of meeting CarWashMike face-to-face, but he was 1 of the ones who's knowledge I utilized in learning how to cook on my Egg.

    Seeing how his passing has affected those who knew him in "real life" as well as on this forum is a testament to Mike's character.

    RIP Mike.

  • As new guy on the forum I looked for Mike's posts. I learned a lot and am grateful for the opportunity to have learned from him. Rest easy Mike, Dave in Plumas County

    We're on vacation and I just saw this. Sorry to hear of Mike's passing. I didn't know Mike personally, only through his posts here. He was obviously well thought of and will be missed by all. My best to his family.

    Hey Todd:
    I'm with you. I got an email from an acquaintance letting me know the news and I went back on the forum for the first time in a long time. I even had to send for a new password; it's been that long!
    many of the 'old timers' here mean a lot to me.
  • BigABigA Posts: 1,157

    I wish I could have met Mike in person, he was definitely a very special and gifted egger held in high esteem by his colleagues. He has been so helpful. May he rest in peace.
