I miss him already. A lot.
The loss of a brother four years ago still feels as real to me today as it did then and to look back at these pics reinforces why I am still here. Four years ago, I felt like a dumb Texas boy trying to hold my own against a click of bbq guys on the interwebs.

Then I started my smoker outside the garage to cook some meat based off of a couple tips I had picked up at my new favorite site, bbq brethren, and spent the night watching the pit, reading back through threads that I hadn't been part of. I remember reading stories of Scott and his grandkids that night and thinking how good it was to be part of his/our family. A racoon attacked me, I got my cook done (using apple at the time but cherry since), and I have continued to grow and learn thanks to scott and the legacy he left us. After I eventually heard the news, I remember walking in to my bedroom in tears, trying to explain to my wife what had happened. But she understood. My passion for my friends here is beyond words.
