We have no rule that says people must share their recipe. Is it nice to have the recipe yes but IT IS NOT REQUIRED so lets stop posting snide remarks and trying to shame people because they either don't have an actual recipe of decide not to share it. There are some people that have businesses selling something so why would they give away the recipe. There are also people who have family recipes that are not shared with anyone but family.
 
I agree about the people who have a proprietary recipe related to a business and closely held family recipes. Don't like to see people show up in roll call with 6-7 post in a row with nothing but pics from their Instagram with no details or methods. Basically seeking likes but ultimately not helping anyone learn anything. This is a forum for people to come and learn? And share. Might just be me

Amen, bro This place isn't, or shouldn't be about "Look at me, here's what I did". It should be about "Here's what I did, and this is how I did it" !
 
I left this site when it became apparent that generating revenue was the top priority, and I'm fixing to go again.

I say ignore those and the content that is not what you like or what you feel this site represents.

I would share anything, I have nothing to loose. Not sure what there is to loose…. As if some non-business member would pull a recipe and start business by using a recipe but whatever.
 
I agree with what pineywoods pineywoods says and what TNJAKE TNJAKE says. I’m torn on this.
I agree with Jerry on a point as well but not the whole thing. For us commoners who don't have a secret recipe we should share with the forum. Otherwise there isn't a point of having a forum based on teaching or helping people perfect their bbq
 
Tulsa Jeff owns this site and he makes the rules not the staff. I have been a member for a little while and recipes have never been required. If someone posts something and it doesn't have a recipe you are not required to post in that thread.
 
Why torn? If you don't want to share how you did something, then don't post your cook
I understand and agree.

True.

Thanks for responding to my post. I stand corrected.

Not trying to be confrontational as I consider you a friend but what's the point if we don't post recipes and methods with certain exceptions for some with close held secrets?

Maybe needs some weeding from the top down

You can certainly PM Jeff and tell him your ideas.

Jake I have no problem sharing a recipe the only time I won't is if I got it from someone else then I ask that person first.
People become members for many reasons some just got a smoker and have no clue how to operate it. Some haven't even bought a smoker yet. Others are here to learn and share what they know. Of course some also join just to stoke their ego. We get all kinds

TulsaJeff TulsaJeff runs a business using his website and this forum by sharing his knowledge and recipes. If he didn't share those methods and recipes and only posted pics his business wouldn't do so well right? This forum is no different. People are here to learn and receive tips. Methods and recipes help that and in turn help Jeff by making this the go to site for people to turn to. Hence the reason smf shows up in Google for dang near any smoking meat question you can ask
