I too am new to the forum. I found it through another site, and read a "lot" of threads in the forum before I joined. I guess the reason that I did join was due to the willingness of the other members to help one another in the quest for the "ultimate" barbeque. I know that I have gained a ton of info in the one month that I have been a member of the forum. I have a lot of new recipes and ideas to try that have been gained through this new found group of friends. I just hope that occasionally I might be able to help others with things that have worked for me.
Phil, if what you wrote doesn't get everyone on track, then maybe they need to find a forum that appreciates their expertise.
