post #77 of 78

I finally got around to checking the updates to this thread.  BOY!  Looks like I missed a good one!

 

All of the food looked awesome.  Nice looking RF build, what a good way to break it in.  I like the bottle opener...may have to steal that idea!

 

I hope I can come next year.  I hate I missed it.

 

BTW, were the "chuckies" you were talking about chuck roasts?  They looked good and I have a couple in the freezer!

Hey everyone, it's been quite a while and a lot has happened since I met you all last May. For starters my wife got promoted and took a job in Gaffney, SC so we moved from Kannapolis to Gastonia in July. We are in an apartment so the smoker couldn't come with me unfortunately. Most recently in February I found out that I relapsed with my bone marrow cancer and just began chemotherapy yesterday March 7th. It is very rare that I relapsed with the exact same cancer and it seems to be progressing pretty quickly. I wanted to invite everyone local to a spaghetti dinner and silent auction benefit on Saturday April 9th from 4-7. All proceeds will help me with medical expenses. If anyone is interested in in donating items for the silent auction that would be awesome as well. The dinner will be at Temple Baptist Church in Gastonia. If you have any questions message me here or feel free to add me on Facebook, username is MattandMiranda Lauffer. Thanks for reading! Hope everyone is doing well!
