    9,000 POSTS. What can I say?!?!!!  I have read your words religiously since before I signed up to be a member. You have given you wisdom, help and advice to so many, so unselfishly so many times, I cannot count.  I have learned a great deal from you, as well as others, and have rigorously followed some of your step-by-steps and have been able to produce wonderful results. There are alot of members that must appreciate you and your posts, whether they agree or not, and you can count me as one.  A friend, although we never met, that I know I can get your honest opinion from and be assured that you gave it with honesty.

    Congradulations to you on your accomplishments within this wonderful forum.  Hope the next 9,000 even brings more!!!

    Your friend,,Rich

    Between your recipes and your tutorial on carpenter bees, you have been invaluable!

    Good luck and good smoking.

    Thank You Shooter!

    That's a nice looking house, and just about the same color as mine too!

    I think I'd hate to mow the yard though.

    We looked at a few of them, before we picked ours. The only place, from the outside, that it's easy to tell it isn't real logs is on the corners.

    They still look really nice, but they may even be bigger targets for Carpenter Bees, than real log houses, because of the size of the cell structure.

    The Carpenter Bee generally goes into the wood about 3/4" to 1" deep. Then she makes a right turn, and drills with the grain in a pore of the wood.

    The only part of my house that they never drilled is the logs themselves, I believe because every log is the heart of a tree, and the pores are very small & tight in the center of the tree. They seem to like Facia, Soffit, Decks, Railings, 2 X whatever, and anything else with a cell structure from near the outside of a tree.

    You will even be a bigger Hero, when they contact you, and tell you how many Bees they caught !!  [​IMG]

    Bear you are one of the main reasons I post my Q-View.  When I first joined this board over a year ago I would have never though documenting my BBQ adventures would become the hobby that it is.  We all know you love your Bear view so I post with the anticipation that it gets you approval.  I don't think I would be the BBQ cook I am today with our your encouragement.
