First off, thanks for all the kind words on the last few posts; once again, you confirm that TNS readers are the best readers. One day, when my vast future barbecue empire makes me rich, I will charter a plane, fly to each of your hometowns and buy each of you a beer and a hot dog.

Second, congrats to cookbook winners Lisa, Kat, Tanis and Mia! Check out the book index, and send your choice to michelle at thursdaynightsmackdown dot com along with your mailing address.

Woot!
