Just want to say thanks...

We have hit another milestone here at BBQC...Overnight the 2,00th member registered on the forum!!

I know there are many more folks who come on the site who decide not to register and that is fine...but to all of you who have taken the extra 45 secs to formally register and to those who contribute (whether a lot or a little) you have all helped play a role in the success of this forum!!

When I started this board almost 4+ years ago I had no hope for it lasting 6 months let alone becoming a growing living thing on the internet that it has developed in to! All of you have played a role in that...all of you have helped separate this forum from the others on the internet too!!

This forum continues to be open to all without dicrimination to region, cooker, fuel and everything else that makes most forum "singular" in their focus. When you come here, not only are the people nice with loads of info, you will also get a wide variety of info given the folks experience!! That is hard to find anywhere else on the net! We are a true melting pot of bbq/grilling info!!

So, in summary, I am humbled that even one person decided to join this place let alone the now thousands who have...we have gone through a lot of changes since the beginning but the forum has been better for them!!

Here is to another 2,000 (or more) in the future!!

Good job Greg and thanks. Oh yeah, and what Bruce said.
