Scooter, of Scooter's
The women at Tops Barbecue, 4183 Summer Ave.
All the friends and family who told us about barbecue in other states but didn't want their names online
Mr. Dennie, the pig farmer who welcomed us at his home
Robert Horvath, the friendly Q'er who took time to come talk with us
Our parents and coaches
And, a special smile for Sarah of Slave2thebean Designs, for her tireless tutoring and technical advice--thank you for answering your telephone even after bedtime!
