Tom, not to be repetitive here, but your work is excellent. That grill is very impressive! It'd be a real learning experience to be a fly on the wall while you worked. I wish I'd known of you when I lived in Columbus...I'd have asked for the opportunity.
I would have liked that. It seems most of my friends live in Michigan now. Good thing we have these message boards, they make distance irrelevant!
