Our Links Policy

If you would like me to link this site to you, please read this page thoroughly. I will not accept requests for links unless you follow the procedures on this page. Do not send me an email. Click on the link below.

This website is all about serving people who love food and drink. I carefully select links that I think meet the needs of my visitors. I spend a lot of time selecting links and writing about them.

For me to even consider linking to your website it should be related to food and drink. Your site must be informative, accurate, original, well maintained, and well-designed. Please do not submit sites that are under construction. Wait until it is complete.

The identity of the author/owner/webmaster or other persons in control must be clear and plain, and contacting him or her must be simple.

Your site or your advertisers must not include or promote pornography, hate, bigotry, libel, violence, discrimination, or illegal activity. I reserve the right to reject any links that I may deem offensive at my discretion without explanation.

You must conspicuously post your privacy policy on your web site and make it available to all visitors. Your privacy policy must comply with all laws and accurately disclose your collection and use of visitor information.

When asking for a link to your site it is especially nice if you already have a link to this site, but reciprocity is not a condition for listing.

Listings are usually grouped by topic and then listed alphabetically. I might give you preferential treatment if your site is especially good and especially useful to my visitors.

To submit your site for consideration, please click here and send me a sentence or three describing your site. I almost certainly will edit the description if I decide to link to you.

Please read this before posting a comment or question

grouchy?1) Please use the table of contents or the search box at the top of every page before you ask for help, then please post your question on the appropriate page.

2) Please tell us everything we need to know to answer your question such as the type of cooker and thermometer you are using. Dial thermometers are often off by as much as 50°F so if you are not using a good digital thermometer we probably can't help you. Please read this article about thermometers.

3) If you post a photo, wait a minute for a thumbnail to appear. It will happen even if you don't see it happen.

4) Click here to learn more about our comment system and our privacy promise. Remember, your login info for comments is probably different from your Pitmaster Club login info if you are a member.
