    Nice Job Bear!!!

    When looking thru a tread with a lot of responses, sometimes I am guilty of skimming over some of them but I always stop when I see your Avatar because I know it will be relevant and very Informational.  I have always valued your opinion and have tried a few of your step by step recipes and have had great success.

    Keep it up my man!

    Congrats Bear, keep em coming brother!

    By the way, remember when you did the carpenter bee thread? You asked if anyone was interested and I was one of the ones who was. You then did a very thorough and informative thread. Well I went on vacation this Summer with some friends that had just built a house on top of a mountain in Brasstown, NC. Now they do not have an actual log cabin like you but they went with a log siding that looks just like whole logs, very beautiful. The first day we arrived and they were showing us around and I noticed a perfect hole in the overhead beams and then I started looking on the wooden deck for sawdust and of course there was some. I tell them you have a carpenter bee problem and if you don't do something about it soon you are going to have these holes everywhere. Well we were there for a week and we found new holes everyday. I told them about you and the carpenter bee thread and they wanted me to fire up the computer right away. When I showed them the thread they were amazed and were going to order a trap right away and then have their builder construct a bunch of them to match the house. I was the hero thanks to you and a thread about a carpenter bee on a BBQ forum.

    Who would've thunk it?

    Thanks Bear!

    A few pictures of the house.

    Just kidding, you have been a great asset to this site & have helped so many with your tutorials.

    Almost every day I run across a thread that they are thanking you for your help.

    wow...9000 posts in a little under 2 years, impressive indeed. Thanks for all the info and advice posted. I know I have made good use of much of it and still have things on my list to do thanks to your threads. It's been my great pleasure to use your posts as information blogs when wanting to tackle a new smoke. You, and many others on here, make this the best forum to be on, learn from and avoid pitfalls that we may otherwise may have fallen into. Oh, and some of that wierd shit you smoke and eat amazed me <grin>. Keep 'em coming buddy....thanks for everything....looking forward to many more posts from you....best regards, Willie
