I think he's so cool. I've been a fan for a long time. I love the way that he produces some really quite complex and well built things and he's not arrogant about it.
I like how he just wants to build cool stuff because its fun, and then he does, and he's not patronizing in anyway when he's doing instructional. Things like the jettle and turbobeque were my favorite, simply because its just him doing something he thinks would be funny.
