Give me a week or two to update your profiles as OTBS Members-keep in mind that if you are Premier Members, your Premier Member tag overrides the OTBS tag.

WOW !!!!!

What an unexpected and wonderful surprise. To be in such exalted company is, indeed, an honor. I shall do my best to live up to it.

Thank you to whomever nominated me and to Dutch and the team for my selection.

[Number 300, eh? Has a nice ring to it!]

That was a unexpectedly good (great!) end to the week. Thank you so much to whoever nominated me and those who voted for me - Dutch is not giving anything away !!!.


It is a privilege and an honour to be recognised by the senior membership of the forum - especially being from across the pond. I am just pleased that I can help the newcomers develop their skills wherever they are from. One thing is for certain though - I will never stop learning from others on the forum.

What a deserving list of inductees! It is great to see so many great people on the SMF. Congratulations to you all and many thanks for your ideas, inspiration and knowledge.

It is a great honor to be amongst so many great smokers.  I'm honored big time. 


As Wade said: 

"One thing is for certain though - I will never stop learning from others on the forum"


Think I'll celebrate this weekend by doing some more Salmon and maybe some chicken lollipops.

Ditto Wade! I am really honored and humbled by this. It's a great way to start the summer! Now that I have the SMF stamp of approval I'll be extra active on the forum now and do whatever I can to help others! Congrats to the OTBS Spring class of 2016

Yey...I made it to the old boys club. Kidding...seemed like a sensitive topic to some.

Thank you for the induction. Now I have to make one exception to my rule in life: never be part of a club willing to take you as member (borrowed it from Groucho).

One thing that baffles me....there are names on the list that I assumed were members already. I mean smoke jockeys with serious cooks under their belts and active most of the time ,ready to help. I am honoured to be inducted at the same time with them.

This is a list of well deserving members. Whenever I have a question or need some advice they are always there with the answers I am looking for. I have only been smoking for about 2.5 years and I owe you all many thanks for your help and blame you all for contributing to my already obsessive personality! Haha congrats and Cheers!

Whoa, I'm both honored & humbled ! Just being included in the conversation of the OTBS is more than I could have ever imagined, but becoming a member of it is really unbelievable ! I'd like to thank those who nominated me... And also congratulate the fellow members that were inducted as well !
