Tribute to RonP

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.

Another ron

Thanks erain....   It's good to remember old friends...   In fact, I was using some Yoshida's the other day, and thought of Ron..

Smoked some of Rons chicken thighs yesterday. Think of him often. He turned into a very good friend.

Man, how you been? it has been a while since I ran across a post of yours although I haven't been doing a whole lot on any of the forums lately. Good to see your still around!
