Sorry that I've been off the forum for more that a day or twa, it's a challenge to work fulltime, run a small ministry and take classes for said ministry and trying to meet the needs of the family.
But anyhoo-who do you know that deserves to be inducted into the Order of the Thin Blue Smoke?
Here is a reminder of the criteria:

Nominations for OTBS status will no longer be made by the general SMF Membership. The Moderators will make their recommendation(s) to the Administrators; the candidates qualifications will be reviewed and the decision will then be made to award the OTBS status.

The general membership however may make OTBS recommendations to any of the Moderators of SMF. This change is being done to remove the perception of the OTBS of being or becoming a 'Good Ol' Boys/Girls' club. The candidate that you recommend must still meet the following criteria:


The Candidate should
1- be a
SMF member in good standing.
2- be active in the forums for at least 9 months.
3- know and be able to demonstrate the art of the thin blue smoke by posting q-vue of a successful smoke.
4- willing to share tips and recipes.


I should ask that before you make a recommendation to the Mods on who you think are deserving of this Prestigious Honor, please check the OTBS Rooster and make sure that the person is not already an OTBS Member.

So let's see what'cha got!

I have a question about the "q-vue" requirement. Is there something special or some special place for this, or is it simply a matter of adding some pics to you regular post? Some tag or keyword you need to have in your post?

Q-vue is just pictures of your cooks, tips or anything bbq related to help out others or give ideas of stuff that turned out great or even not so great!

Thanks. I wasn't trying to be snarky in any way, I was legitimately curious. :emoji_slight_smile:

Charlie, on the main OTBS page just above this topic is a pinned topic named OTBS Roster. Make sure to read through the entire topic. Because of word count limits, there are 4 rosters.

So the list hasn't been added to since 2018? Have people been included and just not added to the list or is this something that you're trying to revive?

That particular list was STARTED in 2018. I add to the current list until I max the word count and then start a new list.
