    This Post is for information on the Order of the Thin Blue Smoke, the requirements for membership and the current list of members.

    When everything is going right when smoking, your smoke should be light with a bit of a bluish gray tint to it-not heavy and rolling. This is referred to as the "Thin Blue Smoke"-the Zen of smoking if you will.

    The "Order of the Thin Blue Smoke" was created to honor those members that have helped others in the pursuit of the Art by sharing their knowledge. Though most candidates are nominated by a member of the Order of the Thin Blue Smoke, anyone can nominate someone for membership. Or, if you want to join this Order, post your request in the "OTBS" thread or send me a personal message and please, state why you should be considered for membership into the Order

    Here is the criteria that is looked at in in considering ones "application/nomination" to the Order-


    The Nominee should
    1- be a SMF member in good standing.
    2- be active in the forums for at least 9 months.
    3- knows 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.

    There are two types of nominations; General and Special.

    General Nominations to the OTBS can be made by anyone.

    Special Nominations to the OTBS are made by the Moderators and/or Admin. This nomination is made in recognition of a member’s Outstanding contributions to SMF.

    Once a person is nominated and the nomination has been seconded, they will be placed on a “Squires” list for a period of time. (2-4 weeks?) During this time, their posts and interactions with forum members will be monitored.
