    We are now offering SMF Premier Memberships for those who have asked for this! As always, the forum is absolutely FREE and there is no requirement or expectation, but when you "chip in" it is greatly appreciated.

    This forum comes at a cost and we try to offset this with ads and some affiliate links. The premier memberships help to defray the remaining amount.

    With a premier membership, you are not only supporting this forum but there are PERKS involved too.
    • You get to turn off the Ads
    • You can post a link to your website, facebook, etc. in your signature area
    • You get a badge on your profile letting everyone know that you "chipped in".
    More than anything else, you will have the satisfaction of knowing that you are supporting the forum that you love.

    Once you get to the "account upgrade" area, you'll see the following (4) options:
    1. 1 year membership for $15
    2. 2 year membership for $25
    3. 3 year membership for $40
    4. Lifetime membership for $100
    Choose the one that you like and click on the "Purchase" button to go to Paypal where you can use your Paypal account or a credit/debit card (no paypal account or login required) to purchase your account upgrade.

    Once your payment goes through, a badge will appear below your username on every post that says "Premier Member".

    Let me know if you have any questions about this.

    Finally got off my backside and joined this group. The cost is nothing compared to what I've learned here. A lot of good people to hang with.

    Well, its a combination of things. The truck had a great year, I have some spare cash (been a long time since I've been able to say that!!) and I've been meaning to do it for several years now.
    When I joined this forum, I didn't know a MES from a reverse flow stick burner. EVERYTHING I know about smoking meat I learned right here.
    I figure now is the time to say "Thanks Jeff". So I'm gonna click that button and become a Lifetime Premier Member.
    I'd write some more stuff, but I have a Buy Now button to click.

    Just tried to “upgrade”. It didn’t recognize my log in. Twice. It offered to take my credit card info, though. Sorry, but no thanks....

    Was wondering if there is a way to join the premium area other than thru PayPal? Had a bad experience with them several years back

    At this time, the built-in system only accepts Paypal but I'm not opposed to accepting paper checks from anyone who is opposed to allowing Paypal to handle their debit/credit card payment.

    Use the Contact Us link to email support and we will contact you with the mailing address so you can send in a personal check, money order or cashier's check.

    I am even willing to make it instant on your end. If you tell me you are sending in a check, I will go ahead and move you to the membership and make it active today so you won't have to wait.

    I am planning to implement an add-on that allows other forms of payment but I do not have a scheduled date for that yet.

    Let me know if I can help anyone further with this.
