Uncle Bruce

I know, it has been a long time since an update. I have had a lot going on but that is no excuse. Since my last posting, my uncle Bruce passed away. As many of you may know, I lost my father on July 16th. This was his youngest brother Bruce and he died of cancer as well.

Bruce and I were very close. When my father and I were not seeing eye to eye and subsequently not speaking (for 4 years), Bruce really stepped in and spent a lot of time with me. We used to reload ammo in my grandmother’s basement and then go out to Lyle Ogle’s family farm and spend the weekend shooting with Lyle and John Interbitson. Bruce introduced me to BBQ at a young age and taught me a great deal about the art. He competed in the very first Memphis in May cook off and was a big inspiration for my getting involved in competition BBQ. Over the last three years, he came down to the booth and really became a fixture of the team, sitting in the back of the booth and telling his great stories. Bruce will be missed by me and by many who had the benefit of knowing him. There will always be an empty chair in the back of the Peg Leg Porker booth for Bruce……..
