Buying Jeff's recipe helps support the cost of this forum. Without the proceeds from that, it is very likely this forum wouldn't exist, or at least exist as we know and love it. This is by far the friendliest and most helpful smoking forum I have found and $20 is a small price to pay for the incredible amount of information, entertainment and help from members when we have questions or problems.
20 bucks for a recipe?
Some people could pay close to $20 for two or three bottle of sauce or rub. You are getting the actual recipe so you can make it over and over again. To me, that's a deal.
I didn't realize that the money went towards the forum.
Hosting is cheap as well as vBulletin. Not to take anything away, but he is selling his recipe - which is fine, the price is just steep.
If he sells a package to help support by purchasing bandwidth and vBulletin licenses that's another story...
Can you dispute what I said? Hosting and vBulletin licenses are not that pricey. There are sponsors on this site as well as ads. The site gets a good deal of traffic, the sponsorship and ads pay for the hosting easily...
Can we look forward to your new BBQ forum soon?
