It comes from the Greek meaning BBQ. You got to know some stuff to hang out round here.

If you read through the welcome posts for new folks coming in here, it will explain all of that and much more that will help you understand what is happening here.

I doubt that. I figured it meant photos. I think PICS would be more appropriate if that is the case. http://www.internetslang.com/PRON-meaning-definition.asp

Simple - look at that 4 letter word "PRON".... and switch the second and third letter.
Just a sexy term for great looking pictures of BBQ off the pit.

[Also a better indiscreet use without flagging internet search engines ]

Discretion for a family oriented site.

On another note this site is awesome, and I am thankful to have it as a resource

from our FAQ.

What is Pron?
Years ago, several of our members were getting blocked from viewing this site from work. They were getting messages that it contained 'inappropiate content'. Back then, just as it is now, we had a lot of thread titles(and postings) that contained the work PORN when referring to 'food porn'. Corporate scanners were picking that up and labeling us as and Adult website. Search engines also use scoring systems to determine topic and content and the frequency of word use is part of that system. So, in order to avoid search engines, indexing bots and corporate scanners from misinterpereting our site and mislabeling us an adult site, we adopted the word 'pron' to replace the evil 'P" word in our thread tiles and posts.

Well to give you idea what happened when you spell pron the right way - on my website it is spelled the right way and you'd be surprised what people search for to find me. I shudder to think of what "swine pron (spelled correctly)" they were looking for.

Please don't. Read BBQchef33's post above regarding the reason we use Pron.

And most people don't even spell this incorrect word correctly. Don't know what the OP's version of the word means. A capital R? There are only three letters in the real word. That other character is a zero. Pr0n. C'mon, nobody caught that?:noidea:

Having hung out there ofr a couple of years now, I think it's hilarious that there are still newbies who have the same questions I did when I first happened on the site. The nomenclature used here is sort of an inside joke, and it has spread to other BBQ-related sites that I also visit. Personally, I never had the temerity to suggest that said nomenclature be changed to something more straight forward, I just thought it was a hoot when I figured it out.
