Thanks to all

For those who have not heard, two weeks ago I was diagnosed with cancer. It has been removed, and I start chemo next week.

I want to thank all of you for the kind calls and emails I have gotten. I am truly overwhelmed and humbled with all the kind words sent to me. I've always felt the BBQ community was a positive one, and I feel it even stronger now.

I have a blog to keep those following me at

Again, a huge thanks.

Brad, that's some scary stuff and I had not heard about it. Sounds like your on the rapid road to a full recovery and that you've got a great support group of family and friends.

We'll keep you and our family in our prayers that it does not come back.

Please keep us informed on your progress.

Brad will add you to our prayer list. There are two people that work at our dealership with cancer. Seems like that stuff is everywhere. Keep the faith and the best to you.

They're getting a much better handle on that stinkin' disease, better all the time. Best wishes for a fast and full recovery.
