Do You Like This Site?????
Brothers and Sisters

This site is home for alot of us!! It costs alot to keep the site running and so far Phil and a number of others have paid to keep the site up and running. There are so many members now that it is costing alot more to run this site.

Question: Would you be willing to give a donation to help keep the site running??

I have already hit Pay Pal to help out. Think what it would cost you for a subscription to a magazine.

Come on Bro's

Show you care!!

Buy a subscription or make a donation by using the options in the menu on the top of the forum.


MilitantSquatter 02-20-2008 09:45 PM

Jay - Glad you asked !!! I love this place. (is that the right answer ?) :wink:

Anyway, I just made another donation to keep this site running. SOmething I often take for granted myself.

Guys - Jay is right... If you value this site for the information, laughs, people etc. please make it a point to try to contibute a few bucks to keep the site chugging along for everyone's enjoyment. and take few minutes to donate.

As we get larger, this site expenses will only grow. Phil's and others have been very generous to pay the tab ad work to manage costs. With the broad membership we have, a select few should need to bear the financial burden for something we all benefit from.

Thanks !!

You mean that little donate button on the top right of the menu bar? That's the one you hit to send some love to suppor tthis site? consider it done! Scott

Jaberwabee 02-20-2008 10:03 PM

I would be willing to donate also, for all I have learned from everyone around here its only right.

Brewmaster 02-20-2008 10:04 PM

That was easy. I think it took me 30 sec.



thunter 02-20-2008 10:04 PM

I'm in brothers. I will donate this week and also hit the donate button from time to time. I really do like this site and the friends I have made since I have been posting here.

jacob 02-20-2008 10:06 PM

I do love this site, it's home. I usually don't speak of it but if it helps. I sent love last week and plan on sending more love next week. Right now due to family issues it's not a lot, but this place and it's people are very important to me. As many of us that there is here now, if we all did just a little, this place would truly rise above them all.

Meat Burner 02-20-2008 10:10 PM

More than happy to help. Got er done! Thanks to all the folk that work on this fantastic site! THANKS THANKS THANKS THANKS!!!!!!!!!

Barbarian 02-20-2008 10:15 PM


thunter 02-20-2008 10:18 PM

Done. Its quick and easy brethren! :-D

Que'inKC 02-20-2008 10:21 PM

Done....Didn't even think twice about it!!!

Mitch 02-20-2008 10:26 PM

That was easier than popping a cold one on a hot day. Always glad to support my habit!:rolleyes:

thirdeye 02-20-2008 10:27 PM

I'm in for a double sawbuck.

striped pig 02-20-2008 10:44 PM

Well worth the price of a subscription. Done......stan

nthole 02-20-2008 10:55 PM

Save that 29.99 from the "Secrets of BBQ" video that won't tell you spit, do some searches and drink a cold beer in this fabulous playground of meat and fire and remember to hit that donate button this Spring as the BBQ season kicks off.

Next time you light up your pit count the number of things you do that you learned from here that's making your Q better or saving you some money. Then come back and drop off a dollar for each of them. It's just that simple.

SmokeWatcher 02-20-2008 11:08 PM

More $$$ on its way! As much as I'm here, I might as well help buy the groceries! :biggrin:

keale 02-21-2008 12:08 AM

As much time as I spend on here, I should have done this a while ago:rolleyes:
Done deed! Not much, but what I could spare...
Thanks Phil! and the rest that have been contibuting...

Mods please keep this in Q-Talk...

Irrad8 02-21-2008 12:15 AM

Done, glad to pitch in. Would have done it sooner but didn't have pay pal until I bought a hat.:rolleyes: I didn't know you could use credit card thru pay pal without having an account, but now I do.

cmcadams 02-21-2008 06:20 AM

It's a much, much better way to get some money to the site than to have to stuff a $20 bill in Phil's g string at the next bash... I shudder at the mere thought.

I just had to explain to my wife why she got an email from a 'free' forum (I used her Paypal)... I told her why, and she said, "why didn't you do that before?"

carlharper 02-21-2008 06:35 AM

Done deal! Glad to help a good cause.

Smokin Gator 02-21-2008 06:52 AM

Done... a small donation and a huge thanks...

To be totally honest I was not even aware that button was there!! Done deal!! I hope my little contribution helps!!

cardiac_cadet002 02-21-2008 07:40 AM

Love this site, I spend most of my time here. Consider it done & Thanks for the great site and all you guys do!

Jeremiah 02-21-2008 07:48 AM

That was easy, money well spent.

QansasjayhawQ 02-21-2008 07:55 AM

Think of this - if every single one of the people who viewed this thread gave only $5 (251 so far), that would (should) pay for a month of hosting in a decent data center.

Come on gang . . . most folks can find $5 to contribute. That much is likely in your couch cushions!

Do it now - it's easy!

I dont have a pay pal account but will send a check. Will that work?

MrSmoker 02-21-2008 09:51 AM

Done, well worth it.

paydabill 02-21-2008 09:51 AM

I just donated - I love this site and would not want it to go away!

I just did the subscriber thing, since I do nto have a PAYpal account.

KC_Bobby 02-21-2008 10:07 AM

Was that tax deductable?

And can I assume the beers designate who donated?

River City Smokehouse 02-21-2008 10:46 AM

OK.......I paid my subscription......Now where's my "F"ing beer!

Brewmaster 02-21-2008 10:49 AM

You can have a sip of mine.

River City Smokehouse 02-21-2008 10:49 AM

Naw....I don't want herpes.:icon_shy

Depends. Its is not charitable. Could it be considered advertising? :rolleyes: Might be a stretch.

EDIT: A subscription could definitely be a tax deduction if you had a food related business.

Brewmaster 02-21-2008 10:53 AM

So is donating different than a subscription.

Now that I have donated $20, I still need to pay for a subscription??

Sledneck 02-21-2008 11:05 AM

I did as well. Iguess the subscriptions dont come with beers

Yeah, I'd like to know what the cost of each is... so I can have more beers than anyone else! My $20 should get me a Goebel at least!

I did the same thing...I donated $20, then I noticed the subscription...I would rather have the subscription, then i will donate more when I have more...

DeanC 02-21-2008 11:42 AM

Done, thanks for reminding me.

parrothead 02-21-2008 12:17 PM

Hi all! First, thanks for the donations. They are very much appreciated and will go to good use. I was just talking with Phil, and he will be on later to clear up any questions about what is going on.

As far as the beers go, it takes a bit for them to show up, but they will show up once or twice a day during an update of some sort.

Thanks again!

timzcardz 02-21-2008 12:57 PM

I saw this earlier, and just now went to go do the subscription thingy, and lo and behold, the subscription like at the top is gone!

Clicked on the subscribe link earlier in this thread and got the following message ...


The BBQ BRETHREN FORUMS. does not have any paid subscriptions available to which you can subscribe.
So, are there only single time donations, or are there still recurring subscriptions?

HoDeDo 02-21-2008 01:00 PM

Made a single donation - I couldnt get a subscription to pop up... User error probably :)

All times are GMT -5. The time now is 04:50 AM.
