Exactly. We do sometimes get tired if the same questions over and over but then we remember that at one time that was us.

As I learned years ago, the only stupid question is the one that isn't asked. Some forums I've been on seemed to look down on newcomers that had questions, I left those forums behind. The Brethren don't seem to care if you are an expert or someone brand new. If you have a question, someone will have an answer for you and will not look down on you.

Totally agree. Wish I would have found this place 10 years sooner.

I read Aaron Franklinís book and I wonder if he ever visited this site when he was teaching himself how to smoke his brisket. Small window since he opened his restaurant in 2009 and this site started a little bit before that but a window nonetheless.

Same here. I'm still on the uphill side of the learning curve but it's starting to level out a little bit.

I can remember more than once sitting here wondering if I should hit the post button with some of my questions. NOT ONCE did anyone come on and say "you're kidding" or "you really don't know??" or anything even close to that. This is without a doubt one of the kindest most generous group of people I've ever met.....

I agree.

The only thing I see that gets a little "feedback" is when certainties are stated the clearly aren't certain. And when someone is going on about something that they clearly don't know or just trooling.

Good group for sure.

As a long time member, that only recently started posting, I can't thank everyone enough on this forum. I've been on a ton of forums, covering all topics imaginable, over the years.

This forum is far and away the best I've ever been on. Quality information, excellent interaction, and very patient experts with us newbies.

Thank you all. I've learned more than I ever thought possible.

Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year to all!!

What fascinates me is that Googling just about anything related to outdoor cooking leads to this site. Sometimes this site is the only one with an answer.

This is a great place to learn. Even when I'm just reading posts and not looking for answers, I'll see something and think, "I didn't know that!"

Not only have I learned a lot of good techniques but I’ve found out about products I’ve never heard of before. This site is where I got turned on to oakridge bbq and thermoworks.

I’ve posted a lot of threads (one is active now) looking for help and always get good answers

This is indeed a great place to get several different answers to the same question.. lol. Kidding aside, I have learned lots of things in my time here, and hopefully I have helped someone else at some point.

The wealth of knowledge I have gained here is great and I hope I have added to the Brethren. But the friendships I have made are worth more than what I have learned. :mrgreen:

A lot of the credit belongs to Phil and the mods. They do a fantastic job.

When I joined this forum all those years ago I was pretty green. I have learned so much here...I cant even begin to try to quantify just how much. I took a few years off from the forum, but not BBQ. I am happy to be back and always happy to see all of the questions and the advice offered. best bbq forum in the world right here.

Exactly. Last week my wife googled something about cole slaw turning purple after a couple of days and she got her answers here. I talk about the Brethren all the time but she didn't make the connection until I told her this is where I spend my time.

Everyone here has always been very nice and helpful with everything, and I don't think my business would have gotten off the ground if it wasn't for you folks and your willingness to help out. It's one of the reasons I pay for a subscription.

Joining The Brethren is the single best move I've made to up my Q game. I can't begin to list the things I've learned here, and will continue to learn.

This is a great site for beginners - we welcome them in with no snarky attitudes. When I talk to beginner Q cooks, I always point them here.

I echo everything stated here.

I remember when I first joined I thought to myself what kind of crack is this forum smoking not to have many sub-forums (pellet cookers, charcoal cookers, grilling, smoking etc etc.) then after some time here I realized the beauty of everything dumping into Q-talk because of the amount of responses and overall viewership. I then realized Phil and other others mods were crazy like a fox. :shock:

Plus all the money saved on sales listed and not eating out as much.

Not to mention, there are some fantastic chefs, caterers, brick and mortar owners, bloggers ( you know who you are Jeannie!),
comp teams sharing, guys and gals that freely offer their experience.
The experience has saved me, and I'm sure many others, countless
hours and money and prevented ruined Q.
Thanks to all.

I agree with everything that has been said here. Being somewhat of a newb here myself I am more than grateful for all the wisdom and kindness this site has had to offer. I will definitely be a lifelong member and hope to share my knowledge with the other newbs coming in down the road.

Thanks to everyone for all of the comments. The assistance, help, encouragement and friendship that is shared on this forum makes it what it is....the finest BBQ site ever. I have met so many wonderful folks here and many are great friends.

Merry Christmas to everyone and a great New Year. Let's take all of the things that have been posted here and keep this fantastic friendship and fellowship going even better.

Should I put rub on the brisket before or after thawing it out in the microwave?

Don't feel bad. You could be this guy. Says he's been smoking briskets "for years and years".


Watch and you will laugh as he tells you he pulls his briskets off at 185 (leather shoe texture anyone?) then get your tissues out because the end is a tear jerker.

This guy is from Austin, TX. The brisket Mecca. Not from the far corner of North Dakota. No matter how bad your brisket is, you still know more than this guy.

Agree with all. One thing here as opposed to one place I left in disgust. Folks here don't belittle new cooks or their new unnecessary gadgets. Because admit we've all been there.last straw for me on the other, I saw 2 new people to bbq on another site( not a forum) get totally dissed and made to feel stupid when they posted about a newfangled cooking thing they had spent hard earned money on, instead of encouragement and let them learn later that they may not need some things. I believe if a new cook is doing something really wrong you should help with info. But if its harmless I say let them learn. That's what you get on this site, encouragement. I've had brand new cooks at contest come over and want to show me their stuff ( it appears I know what I'm doing but sometimes I don't.lol). I always look and tell them to keep it up. And I tell them to go to bbq brethren site and join. I love my bbq brothers and sisters here.
