      Happy belated birthday. I had no real aches and pains until I hit it. Every time you feel something, get it replaced. Hahahaha. No replacements here yet, but two knee surgeries and an elbow. The hat looks fantastic on you!

          • We have two weber kettle grills (one LARGE and one small/average), the SnS and the Weber Smokey Mountain 18" smoker. We use both natural lump charcoal and KNB for smoking and measure our temps with a Maverick 733, thermopen and MK4. Favorite beer depends on what is cooking (alt answer is yes).

          Another belated HAPPY BIRTHDAY!!

          Hope you had a GREAT day! May it be the kick-off to your best year ever.
