    Totally unexpected, little overwhelmed with this honour. Thank you to all the OTBS members and especially to the members who nominated me. Just hope in the future I can help to maintain the high standard of information, help and behaviour this forum provides.

    Would also like to congratulate fellow members who have been inducted!

    I was surprised you weren't in. I've always thought you were a better smoker than me. Congratulations, Brian.

    Guess it depends....   If you was an A or B, you wouldn't get noticed much...  you'd have to be a Double D to get noticed in Texas....

    Congrats to all the new inductees...very much deserved by each of you! This may as strong a class as we've ever had! Like others have already said, there are some of these guys who I thought were already OTBS!

    Now I expect you guys to buy a round of beers when the Award Stipend comes in the mail...:biggrin:

    And an extra congrats to Bear...that was past due in my humble opinion Thumbs Up

    I know you'll all do the OTBS proud!

    Sir I would like to join the group of OTBS. I know I can follow your guidelines and give back to the people who need help. Or at least point them in the right direction. I see what the difference is since I been using my AMNPS. I used to think that smoking meats ment pushing thru tons of thick smoke. I now know the difference. By using my AMNPS it has been beautiful smokes achieving the best possible meats at the end result. I always promise to show my work and to explain what steps I have taken to get to the end result of my finished foods. I praise this site as it has filled me with a better understanding of how to smoke things the right way. I thank everyone here as I think they are the masters of the smoke and don't need a trophy to prove it. Just good pictures of what they made.
    Again. Thank you all.

    You have to be Nominated by one of the Staff members, aka Mods, Super Mods or Admin. On top of this you have to be an active member at least 1 year, Demonstrate a superior knowledge of smoking meat and pass it on by helping Newbies and answering questions. You need to have several detailed posts of your cooks with plenty of Qview. So basically you are off to a great start. Be active, be friendly, show your stuff and with time and proving yourself a good member, one of us will surely notice and nominate you in the future. Keep up the good work...JJ
