View Full Version : A "Sticky" Subject

Hi everyone, this morning I was looking around to check on my subscription renewal date and realized there is a "sticky" for subscription information at the top of this forum. I thought, "that's good, but maybe everybody doesn't always look up there." So I am taking it upon myself to offer a PSA (that's Public Service Announcement for those of you south of Delaware ;)

The cost of running this site falls directly onto the shoulders of our Grand Poobah. The little advertising that is here does help a bit, but it really doesn't cover the nut. The paid subscriptions can go a long way to covering the expenses of this great community we have. If a subsciption doesn't interest you how about just a donation? Buttons for both are on the blue task bar at the top right under the logo.

This site is not just a stop in and see what is cooking kind of site. I see people on here all day, spending their valuable time being part of this community. And that is what we are, a community of Guys, and Gals, and kids, that care about BBQ'ing tradition and their fellow Brethren.

So I challenge you all to look into your use of this site, whether it's "smack tawkin" competition, challenging Sled for his 13th place chicken trophy - I hope it wasn't jerked chicken, or offering support to someone going through hard times on the Discussion and Reflection forum, or learning a new technique for your smoker from someone else....it all comes from being here, and without this site we would all just be out there trying to figure this out all on our own. So the challenge is to make a 25 dollar contribution or subscription by July 4th, 2010. I want to get 250 new folks supporting this site not only with their postings but also with their wallets.

Please consider doing this if not for the site, do it for me, I hate to not meet my goals ;)


ATTN MODS - If you feel this is inappropriate and want to put in the "sticky" above...could you hold off a bit so as many people can see it as possible? I'll try to keep it at the top. Thanks, Scott

What do you mean people on here all day..........Just kidding this is a great site and if you enjoy it please purchase a membership. The amount of stuff you learn on here is priceless. I never would have become a better cook as fast as I have without the help of everyone here. Plus it's a fun place with great people. If only this was a real place in the world we could go to everyday. Maybe we should start the BBQ Brethren Bar somewhere?

Subscribing to this site was some of the best money I've ever spent. Thanks Poobah for the site and Yak for posting the reminder.

Since already a member... will offer a 2 for one deal.

I'll match a new member's subscription (thru a donation)...sign-up (starting today's date after 10:35 am EST)... and will match dollar for dollar.

Give me a PM/shout out to arrange.

I have no excuse for not purchasing a subscription before now. But Thanks to the PSA, I have now done so.

Thanks to all the members for the information shared here and to Poobah for providing such a valuable resource.

Your newest brother,
Braddog

I got a membership for Father's Day, think I actually ended up getting it the week before Father's Day, but it's one of the presents my wife got me because she knew it would make my day, and man has it.

Just the fact you can subscribe to threads makes this worthwhile, plus it helps the site keep on keepin on. Thanks for making this site happen all you guys and gals out there in the world.

I just re-upped as well and it is worth every single penny. If I could get someone to buy me a rooster icon on the profile instead of buying me beers I might re-up in a way that would make Bandit weep like a willow with his match offer.

Thanks everyone, let's keep it going!

SJ, find the rooster you want and see if you can shrink it to the icon size where the beers are. Maybe we could get poobah to drop it in for ya!

awesome!!! how has your trip back home been?(that's where you've been right)

but im not doin it for the samples (its a great fringe benefit though) but this place actually helped me git through a rough spot when i started here last..october (was out of work and had to find something to occupy my time so didnt spin into a depression or somethin) and this big family pulled me through!!!

so i'll do what i can ta help em out that's why i subscribed,

and if my bumps can let one more person see how this place has helped, and can help others out they'll be worth it

I had been thinking about it and decided to Renew today you guys are right really is worth the $25 a year!

Would like to see less ads for paying members but, I pay for cable and get the ads so I can't complain too much.

OK - y'all are right... I'm not here as often as some of you (would be except paying the bills and taking care of the family don't let me hang out as much as I'd like...) BUT when I'm here I learn, which means I have more fun and make better food. Absolutely worth the few $. Seriously, if the food didn't come out tasty I'd probably go find something else to do that would cost more than the $25 a year... Thanks for the encouragement! Paid up this morning...

I'll give this a thank you bump, many thanks to Big Brother Smoke. Received today a package of several rub samples from BBS, thank you for your generosity. I tasted a pinch of each, very good, spicy, but the best was the Sweet & Spicy. I had some fresh sweet corn straight from the field, slathered it in butter and sprinkled with Sweet & Spicy! Awesome!

Thanks again, Big Brother Smoke.
