I am active on a couple of other forums as well, mostly Smoking meat Forums and Smokin-it but also Lets Talk BBQ. I bought the Amerique 066 back in 2012 and the Cookshack forum had a lot to do with it. Times change but not always for the better. The person running this forum knows how I feel and I even sent info on the other forums and requested they look into changing companies. I guess it was a no go. Too bad. People buy what is popular; they want to be part of a family and cultivate friendships and share experiences in the world of Q. Unfortunately this forum is not the place to do it. Too bad. Cookshack is a great company with great products.
