SOOOO SLOOOOW is an understatement...LOL

I too lurk pretty much daily and am guilty of not participating much.  Haven't cooked much this summer though to have much to share.  Actually things slow down for me in the winter so hopefully I will get some cooking time.  Hopefully a reenergize will happen to keep this going.  I agree that BroilKing I would think would benefit from any and all costs associated with better management and UPDATING of the site though advertisement.  Yes thats a hint to any BroilKing person reading this to help with the reenergizing!  Put any past issues aside and move on....But we may be the only ones left!

yeah this is the worst i've seen it.  I had to look it up but i joined in 2012.  I've never been the most active member because 3 young kids are keeping me busy but i am pretty much a daily / every other day lurker. 

I do remember an argument amounts members causing a few of the large contributors to leave.  It's only gone downhill from there.  It's a shame it had to   happen.   I enjoyed all their posts.  I've learned good techniques from this forum and also i've found some of my goto recipes here.

Also noteworthy is how new members say it is very difficult to get a new account at this point.  I read one guy post he had to go through the process 3 times to get an account made.  I would have given up after 2 attempts.  No doubt this forum is missing out on new members because of it.

Why Broil King doesn't get someone who knows what they are doing to fix it i'll never understand.  The forum i am sure costs money to run (i doubt much) but it is then free advertising and promotion.  They could also make the forum look and feel like its 2017.  They could advertise with pictures and links to their products.  Why not take advantage? 

I'll keep lurking and occasionally posting.  I hope it picks up and we can get back to the good ol days.  Maybe some of the old contributors still lurk here.  If you do.....come back...you are missed.

The board is SOOOOOO SLOOOOOW. I'm pining away for the glory days to return though I know they won't ... kinda like that Bruce Springsteen song.

I think all the time about numerous awesome members who don't post here any more. Why did they leave? Where did they go? Will they come back? Is it the product, the forum medium, this forum in particular or something else?

Sigh. I still stand behind the Keg as a fantastic all around kamado at a moderate price point.

I don't have a list. I barely watch YouTube for BBQ or cooking related stuff, sometimes for a new product review. I'd probably be all over it if my interest in BBQ as a hobby hadn't faded so much over the last few years.

Very nice.  I'll have to give that a shot.

I thought it would be great to find out what others are watching in the interest of discovering new channels out there...

So here is my list:

allthingsbbq --> Chef Tom is really cool
PitmasterX --> Dutch dude, has great ideas...
HowToBBQRight --> Malcom Reed: this guy rocks...
Kamado Joe --> John Setzler and Chef Eric Gephart
Cavaman Meals --> John Setzler
John Setzler --> you know him by now  Grin
BBQ Pit Boys --> I don't really enjoy what these guys make, but they are entertaining...sometimes  Roll Eyes
Adrenaline BBQ Company --> Maker of the slow n sear for Weber Kettle...other than that, not really interesting
Baby Back Maniac --> Funny guy, great editing skills, interesting reviews most of the time
Smoky Ribs BBQ --> Not consistent in his cooks, but once in a while he posts interesting things
BBQwithFranklin --> not very active, but great tips on how to cook Texas style BBQ (Brisket, Ribs, Pulled Porc)

I watched T-Roy Cooks for a while, but I didn't enjoy his style...same for Ballistics BBQ & Mother's BBQ.

If undamaged sure I think they would take it back, but if you have to pay return shipping perhaps it's not worth returning?

When one of the rivets holding on the bottom vent cover gave out, I replaced it with washered hex head sheet metal screws. Enough better than the rivets that it occurred to me that some folks might want to go ahead and proactively replace them.

This was a while ago so I've forgotten the size screw I used, but you can probably try a couple of different sizes until you find the one that works. Careful not to torque it so much that it strips the hole.

Again, BB doesn't like my jpegs, so no pix. Sorry.
Sounds like a good fix. Was that a machine thread screw?

BTW this board isn't really set up to host your pics. You need to put them on a suitable site, like PostImage, Imgur, Google Photos etc then link to them in your post with the IMG tag.

So the bolt holding my vent cap on rusted through and sheared off. I called up OMC and explained the problem, and they sent me what turned out to be what's called a Top Dumper Base on the parts list😂

I went out to put it on, and stripped the heads of the first two screws I tried to back out of the old one. Clearly I was going to have to drill out some screws if I was going to get this thing off. Surely drilling out one bolt that had already failed would be better than six that hadn't, so I drilled a 5/8" hole where the bolt had been, and reattached the cap with an 8mm bolt that I found at Lowe's. Practically identical to the original.

I was able to get two nuts far enough onto the bolt that they would lock. So now I know where to get that bolt if I'm lucky enough to have it rust thru again.

But I have a brand new, untouched Top Dumper Base. Think OMC will take it back?

(Tried to upload pics but BB doesn't like my Apple jpegs.)
