    Hey guys.

    I do a lot of charity BBQs, for veterans groups, homeless charities, etc

    Paul Shirley of Shirley Fabrications out of Tuscaloosa Ala found out about my efforts and donated a custom built pit for me!

    Here are a few pics

    I met his wife Sharon in Cincinnati to get it. She has relatives there and towed the smoker from her home 8 hours there, she has never pulled a trailer in her life.

    Paul, his son Tyler (who does a lot of the work) and Sharon are truly exceptional people!

    Really cool that you give back to our vets as well as other causes with your bbq! And as far as you receiving the custom pit for your efforts, a friend I mine always says, "Good things happen to good people!"

    Email thanks sent to [email protected].

    These folks deserve some recognition for their kind and generous support of this charity effort by one of our members.

    I encourage anyone who might be so inclined to drop them a note of thanks.

    Good luck and good smoking.
