Sorry guys and gals, The Web Gods have spoken and I'm not allowed to trade any more alder for pecan wood, or help send alder rounds to people who are unfortunate enough to get any for themselves local. So Sorry, I was happy to help out those I could. The web gods and super moderators have spoken, summed up here: Monty Super Moderator says: My response to the Web Gods: Wow, I have been a contributing member of the SMF with recipes and Que View, and simply posted an ad to help people out sending them alder wood if they can't find it at Wally World, I started this all to trade members alder for pecan wood, so how is that a commercial venture? I simply can't get pecan in seattle, and many people in Texas or florida can't get alder. People said "I don't have pecan, but can I buy some alder off of you?" Right now there are other "wood for sale" ads in the Classifieds, are you going to delete them too? I don't sell wood on ebay, or craigslist, or other venue. So as you say "I'm lining my pocket with money", wow, hardly. If guys can't trade wood for wood, how is that a commercial biz? LOOK AT ALL MY OTHER POSTS showing TONS OF QUE VIEW! and sharing salmon tips and crabs and scallops. That is a contributing member, not someone who is just selling wood and whoring out your site without giving anything back. Trust me, I'm only helping people out and trying to getting pecan wood in exchange. You don't want me posting anymore about helping other people out with wood, recipe tips, or suggestions? I'm really puzzled Monty. really I am. your website, your rules, Fine, you're just hurting your own membership. Prime example here, me wanting to get some Pecan from this guy. http://www.smokingmeatforums.com/for...threadid=20743 Dave in Seattle. Sorry guys, I was just trying to help. wow, I'm sorta in shock here? I'm interested in any feedback to this post, I sure wasn't in it for commercial interest as you can tell.....do a search on my name HeapOmeat, and you tell me if I'm not a contributing member of the SMF clan.
