i wanted to take the time and let you know how much i appreciate the friends i have made here, the old, the new and the ones to be. it is not everyday you meet such a large group of good souled people in one place. it is only on the web but i do value the friendships i have made here and take to heart each and every one of you. there has been talk on here from time to time of a smoking-meat.com weekend. i hope we can make this happen this year as it would be nice to meet as many of you as possible. May you all have an excellent holiday and an incredible new year.
