Les, my problem is just the opposite, I don't have much time, days go by between when I'm able to look, but I agree with you, the knowledge and friendly camaraderie have taken me from a meat burner to producing excellent meals and an opportunity to see and learn how it's done outside of my tiny bubble.

I too say thank you SMF and to all of the posters that share their knowledge and experience.

Les, I don't think you need another hobby to get you away from SMF, I don't care how sad the dog looks! ( Not saying anything about your wife).  I know that I have personally enjoyed your post and Q-View and although I have not read all 1000 post yet, I am sure I will try to get to as many of them as I can.  It is people like you who keep SMF interesting and informative and if it were not, SMF would be just another website that did not attract the many fine people like yourself and all of the other great people we find here.  Just kiss your wife and pat the dog on the head and keep posting.  I for one will continue to look forward to your post.  Keep up the good work and it won't take you quite so long to get to 2000 as you thought it would.

Your Friend,

Barry

I started making my own wine about a year and half ago. Been on a wine making forum for about same time. That has quickly turned into an obsestion from just hobby. Can't wait til I get my smoker built cause Ill have two obsestions.. I will not spend twice the time on forums and research.. My GF will not like the amount of money I am going to be spending between the two of these..

You can get a new hobby as long as it doesn't interfere with your SMF time. haha

Way to go Les, you've been a great contributor here. 2000 is just a couple of keystrokes away.
