It has been along time since I spent much time here, but came back this night for a few new ideas for Christmas with the family. One of the people I talked to on the phone with several times was Ron while trying to look him up on the thread I found he had passed, he helped me really get the bug years ago and I had hoped to renew our friendship. There will be no sleep for me tonight, I hope his memories and his many posts will help both new smokers and the experienced for years to come. I am sure he will be a great example as long as this sight exists, I hope you will be watching over my MES and me until I join you and finally meet you. Thanks for everything, I will go to Sam's and buy a chicken in your memory and smoke it as I was taught.
