Poll: BBQ Interest Poll (47 member(s) have cast votes)

Please state your interest...

  1. If THP also had a BBQ site, I would visit it. (It would recognize your login credentials, and getting to the site would be as easy as a menu click, so it would be seamless integration, similar to clicking to a sub-forum here, but to a robust BBQ site.) (22 votes [46.81%] - View)

    Percentage of vote: 46.81%

  2. I would not visit a separate BBQ site, I prefer to talk BBQ here, even if that means that categories are limited because this is a hot pepper site. (9 votes [19.15%] - View)

    Percentage of vote: 19.15%

  3. If the BBQ categories here were expanded instead, I would favor that. (Keep in mind the full BBQ site would be a click away and you wouldn't have to "keep it spicy." THP is all about the spicy, so general BBQ talk may detract.) (10 votes [21.28%] - View)

    Percentage of vote: 21.28%

  4. Either way is fine for me. I really have no opinion. (6 votes [12.77%] - View)

    Percentage of vote: 12.77%

  5. I don't talk BBQ so would not visit the other site, and I would not want more BBQ categories here than there already are. (0 votes [0.00%])

    Percentage of vote: 0.00%

In the growing threads you have a "Growing - Other" category, so it's not entirely off-site to have something like "BBQ - Other" here in this forum. However, I can see that some people who aren't into hot peppers might not find the thread(s). If your goal is to expand total visibility, then I like the idea of a new forum with a seamless link here, but also a seamless link there to here. Some people who are into hot peppers and don't know about this site might then find it, etc. (C'mon guys, you KNOW there are peeps out there who don't know about THP!) So I guess my question back to you is what is your overall goal in creating these new things? That goal, IMO, should drive your action.


Yes geeme. This is a hot pepper site that encompasses many things, interests that most pepperheads have. But the first attraction is hot peppers. So when one is searching for a cool BBQ or beer site they may not find this, or if they do, may know now it is here.

With cross-promotion through menu links and possible RSS feed sideboxes a person looking to talk Q could find the BBQ site and may also be into hot peppers, so then s/he would see THP. A tightly integrated community of three of our major interests here.

Same with homebrew. The reason homebrew will be its own site is it is very extensive, and also not related to hot peppers except a few beers lol. BBQ with rubs and sauces is usually always tied to the spicy, even if mild. We just happen to like beer.

You see how it can work to build THP bigger as well. By those people finding the sister site first and then coming here.

So you hit the nail on the head about people that don't know about THP. But I do like asking the members and appreciate the answers, they will help me decide, I've always been on the fence on this one. Thanks!

Now that you mention it, I'm a little surprised there is no music related forum considering your other interests.

There's quite a few Q forums (US and Aussie) I visit along with Youtube vids.  It'd be great to have a 'Q forum sister site to THP.  I'd stay on that one over the others.  And we know the caliber of the members here and the food they make and post. 

 

Would you have a 'Q specific monthly throwdown on that site too?  Would greatly increase peeps interest methinks.  And increase all the members skill and knowledge base.  Plus who'd ever get tired of BBQ pron?

Will make for a nice transition, just before it gets to be a bit too much on a pepper forum, maybe. :)

 

I think the brewing forum will come first. Both at the same time may be hard to do.

Me too on the beer.

 

I like mild heat on 'Q.  Don't mind some heavy heat in the sauces though.

 

I was so close to buying the all grain setup.  Made some tentative purchase and almost finished a heat exchanger.  With the Anova it'd make life easier.  Hmm could still be on the go... :think:
