I'm seeing a lot of multiple posts with the same content. Some are in different forums and may cause some confusion to other members who are attempting to answer any question they may have when they see the same thread by the same member in another forum. It also causes some of the content of the answers to the same questions to become spread out and difficult to find for other members. This results in giving nearly the same answer as another member has already posted, especially if dealing with food safety issues or other "must do" methods or techniques.
If you are new to forums, remember this: when you post a new thread, it will not show up on the "new posts" or specific "forum" page until you refresh your browser or click on the new threads or specific forum button once again. The pages on this forum do not automatically update...they would reload every few seconds if they did, and you would not be able to read the thread listings very easily as a result (lists would be changing with every update).
So, please, post once with your new thread, or reply to a thread, then refresh your browser and you will see it on the updated page. If using tabbed browsing (more than one web page open at a time), this will be the most likely time for not seeing your new post...again, refresh the page and it will appear.
If anyone needs advice or tips on posting, please, don't hesitate to ask...even if you've read the forum posts in the "new members forum"and elsewhere, not everything may be clear to you...not a problem, as we all have to start somewhere, and there are tons of folks here willing to help, myself included.
Thank You, very, very much!
Have a wonderful, smoke-filled day, with tons of great eats!
