    I must be missing something. I have a question in regards to notification filtering and my example is as follows. On the Forum I am currently Following the Introduce Yourself channel because I want to welcome new individuals when they join the PMC. However I do not follow each individual thread that is posted under it, but if I make a comment an individual thread, without following it, and then others comment on it I get a notification.

    The logic map is this, and I am using the most recent as a specific. PMC Website - Introduce Yourself (channel, followed) - New Member from Cajun Country (thread, commented on, Not followed). I have receive notifications of all the individuals that have commented after me regardless of following the thread itself individually.

    Now to clarify my notification settings. The only thing that I have check marked for notifications is When people follow you, Mentions you, quotes you, and comments on your discussion.

    When it comes to the "Comments on your discussion" setting, what actually constitutes something to be "your" discussion? Is it your specific post on a channel/thread, a thread that you have commented on, or is it a combination of the two?

    I hope this makes sense. My wife says that I can complicate the easiest thing sometimes.

      Greetings AverageJoe

      It is both (a combination of the two).

      "Your" discussions are any topic that you have started, posted in, or commented on.

      Simple.

          It will not allow you to quote or comment directly to a previous comment. You can only "quote" or "Comment" on replies.

            Thanks for wanting to give a trial membership to your son! However, you can't do it for him if you're logged in, you are already a member and the system sees that. You'll have to send him that link and he will have to click it and sign up himself. Or, log out, then sign up with his email address, and send him the login info that you create.

          Welcome! Jealous that you live in KC. I was there in March and stopped at Joe's. Also Q39 and several other places. Nobody does BBQ better.

          1) We have a LOT of info on thermometers on the public side of the site. Cooking, indoors or out, is all about temperature control. We recommend you manage your grill temp with a thermometer with a probe on a rope like one of these:

          Single probe for either oven/grill or for food https://amazingribs.com/thermometers...tx-1200-review
          Two probes, one for oven/grill, one for food https://amazingribs.com/thermometers...mometer-review

          The probe goes next to the meat so it feels the same temp as the meat.

          If you can't fall asleep tonite, here are some articles about therms and how to use them. It also contains links to reviews of our highest rated therms. We have an electrical engineer with special equipment testing thermometers.We don't sell them.
          https://amazingribs.com/ratings-reviews/thermometers
          https://amazingribs.com/ratings-revi...rmometers-work

          2) First of all, don't soak the chips. Here's why:
          https://amazingribs.com/more-techniq...our-wood-first

          Get the wood as close to the flame as possible. If you have to remove the metal over the burner and place the woon on a disposable aluminum loaf pan. And if ash gets in the bottom, get over it. You've gotta clean out the grease sooner or later!

          3) Baby backs cook faster than spare ribs or St. Louis cut. And time can vary depending on how thick they are and that means how much meat the butcher leaves on. To be safe, give yourself 5-6 hours once you know for sure the air temp. If you didn't have control over temp than who knows how long they will take. B ut don't hurry ribs. At higher temps they tend to get tough.

          4) Stick with your grates for now. Master your system. Nail ribs. The aluminum GrillGrates are very nice especially for hotter cooking.

          Enjoy your visit in The Pitmaster Club.

            Unless I'm really missing something, not all sub-channels are listed on the channels page. As an example, the Pit Barrel Cooker one isn't there. Whenever I want to take a look at it, I wind up searching for Pit Barrel Cooker. There's got to be a better way.

              Meathead - I totally understand and my comment was most definitely directed at the software and not you or any of your crew that looks after these forums. If that's the way it came across, it most definitely was not my intention.

              The current problem is that "Pit Barrel Cooker" is second level sub forum.

              Level 0: Grills and Smokers
              Level 1: Charcoal
              Level 2: Pit Barrel Cooker

              Only only one level down shows. So you have to click the "Charcoal" in "Grills and Smokers" section of the channels page, then scroll down the "Pit Barrel Cooker" link.

              I’m seeing a strange issue and it’s probably user error somehow. My info for latest post isn’t updating, but the topic is moving to top and getting notifications. In example below, thread was obviously commented on most recently, but still shows Huskees comment as last.

              Also, it’s showing this on multiple devices.

                The Good-One Is A Superb Grill And A Superb Smoker All In One

                the good one grill

                The Good-One Open Range is a charcoal grill with an offset smoke chamber attached. It is dramatically different from a traditional offset smoker. The grill sits low in front and doubles as a firebox for the smoke chamber which is spliced on above and behind so it can work like a horizontal offset smoker only better. By placing the heat source behind and under the smokebox instead of off to the side, Open Range produces even temperature from left to right, something almost impossible to achieve with a standard barrel shaped offset.

The beefy hardwood handle provides a comfortable grip secured by three hefty rivets. He has machine washed his more than 100 times. They have never rusted and they stay shiny without polishing.
