Bacon looks great!

How's it going now?  We're getting it pretty good in Des Moines and I see on the radar that we're getting nothing compared to you guys
If the folks in IL, MN, MI, etc. make it through this extended period of 20" of global warming week after week, there won't be a UHaul available for a year......they will all be headed South!  You folks are a hardy bunch.  We should listen to Algore before this global warming freezes us all.  Good luck and good smokin' and stay warm for a few more months.
well Im seven hours in its 20* 30 mile an hour winds and its snowing like a bitch

the old GOSM is chugging along at 235* and the Butts are at165* and the Bud Light is Ice cold
