    The favicon for the site is really low-res

    Meathead - this is an issue if you save the site to your homescreen under iOS. See the pic to get a better idea what I'm talking about. Contrast this to the favicon from www.thefooddictator.com which is very high res (5th icon row, #3).

    Message me and I can explain how to re-do your favicon so it's high-res.

          So far, I've had 2 days to really check this site out and love the content! Vbulletin is very old software though and not optimized for smartphones, modern PCs or chat styles that young people are used to.

          I am very partial to Discourse, which is free, open-source and addresses the issues I just mentioned. Details at https://www.discourse.org/about and they have very robust conversion capabilities from vbulletin. This gentleman can easily help migrate the forum (I've heard good things about his work) - https://www.literatecomputing.com/

              I've taken the liberty of generating the needed favicons based on this image: https://i.pinimg.com/originals/36/21...becc560af0.jpg

              Email me and I can send them to you - here are the directions once you receive them:
              1. Extract this package in the root of your web site. If your site is http://www.example.com, you should be able to access a file named http://www.example.com/favicon.ico.
              2. Insert the following code in the <head> section of your pages:
                <link rel="apple-touch-icon" sizes="180x180" href="/apple-touch-icon.png"> <link rel="icon" type="image/png" sizes="32x32" href="/favicon-32x32.png"> <link rel="icon" type="image/png" sizes="16x16" href="/favicon-16x16.png"> <link rel="manifest" href="/site.webmanifest"> <link rel="mask-icon" href="/safari-pinned-tab.svg" color="#5bbad5"> <meta name="msapplication-TileColor" content="#da532c"> <meta name="theme-color" content="#ffffff">

                The Slow 'N' Sear turns your grill into a first class smoker and also creates an extremely hot sear zone you can use to create steakhouse steaks.

                Placeholder

                The Good-One Open Range is dramatically different from a traditional offset smoker. 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 PK-360, with 360 square inches of cooking space, this rust free, cast aluminum charcoal grill is durable and easy to use.

It is beautifully designed, completely portable, and much easier to set up for 2-zone cooking than any round kamado.

                Placeholder

                The amazing Karubecue is the most innovative smoker in the world. The quality of meat from this machine is astonishing. At its crux is a patented firebox that burns logs above the cooking chamber and sucks heat and extremely clean blue smoke into the thermostat controlled oven. It is our favorite smoker, period.

                This is the first propane smoker with a thermostat, making this baby foolproof. Set ThermoTemp's dial from 175° to 350°F and the thermostat inside will adjust the burner just like an indoor kitchen oven. All you need to do is add wood to the tray above the burner to start smokin'.

                Napoleon's NK22CK-C Charcoal Kettle Grill puts a few spins on the familiar kettle design. In fact, the hinged lid with a handle on the front, spins in a rotary motion 180 degrees. It's hard to beat a Weber kettle, but Napoleon holds its own and adds some unique features to make the NK22CK-C a viable alternative.
