An old guard for sure...I have only been around for a couple years and very saddened by the news. He was a legend here and in his life, very sorry for the loss. I am sending prayers to him and his family!

So sad news as said by many he will surly be missed his knowledge is a legacy that will last our life times. I can honestly say he is a man that I would love to have met personally to just take in some of his knowledge.

Condolences to his family and many friends who will surely miss him. A great lost for the SMF Forum.

RIP Pops. Thank you for your willingness to contribute all that you did here. I don't think I would ever have cured anything but your family's brine was so simple and perfect you convinced me to try and it gave me the confidence to learn more. My smoked turkey in that brine is even better than I would ever expect to pull off in my lifetime. Thoughts and prayers to your family.
