Hi everyone,

My name is Connor, I work for Onward Manufacturing as the Marketing and Sales Support Coordinator. I am new to the Keg forum but am going to be playing a larger role in the community hopefully for the next few years to come. I look forward to the opportunity to help everyone out best I can and to learn some things from all of you at the same time.

I have been working for Onward for almost 3 years now as a summer student with our demonstration team. If you happen to live in southern Ontario and seen us outside of a BBQ store I may have already helped you out. I am now taking on some more responsibility with Onward and am really excited about the challenges ahead of me. I will be working closely with BBQRich to make sure everything stays the way you like it.

My goal here is to get you all as excited about grilling on our products as I am. I myself own a Keg 4000 and a Sovereign 90 though I much prefer my charcoal over gas. My favourite thing to make on it is slow cooked chicken wings with a sweet and spicy maple Thai sauce. I will share some more of my other favourite keg recipes in the time to come.

Keep in mind I am here to aid all of you in questions you may have but am not your only resource. If you have any issues or intimidate concerns please direct yourself to our customer service department. They will be glad to help you out.

I look forward to getting to know all you Keg enthusiasts.


Connor

Welcome fellow Southern Ontarian!

Feel free to promote keg demos here under Keg News and Events.  I live a stone's throw from Barbecue World (formerly Ontario Gas BBQ).  

Cheers, the Keg awaits.

Welcome, this board used to sell and really promote the keg.

I don't know how many times I read "I was considering X smoker,  but when I read this board,  I decided to buy a keg".
I don't think OMC really realized the importance of it all . 
I'm not saying this to complain,  or to take away from your welcome.  Welcome!

People became fearful of posting, the board became clicky.
A good moderator can either make or break a board.
Either way it's not the moderator's fault, rather whoever put him there. Not everybody has what it takes to moderate,  I know I don't.

I assume that you will be moderating,  you need to build trust,  be fair, provide a safe place for newbies to ask and feel welcome.  Respect posts even if you do not agree with them.
We had some great mods,  who kept this alive,shed their personality onto the board.


Maybe now that we are at the lowest post count ever things may change.

Sounds like a great idea!

Our team is just starting to kick off their summer demos and would love to show people the Broil King advantage.

While I have been here we have not done them in Quebec. Our summer demo students stick to the southern Ontario area but sometimes the stores do offer independent demos that you can check out. We are looking at expanding our customer interactions into the cooking school side of things so hopefully in the future we can create something that you will be able to attend.

I'm still lurking.  Just not cooking much.  Tons of work travel among other things.
