There are benefits for members - yes, there should be more and we (membership) committee is working on some things for people to see a direct benefit.
Helping to promote BBQ as America's cuisine?
Supporting youth and education through grants and grants in aid?
Having a voice to help direct the organization?
I have made more lifelong friends in BBQ than I ever could have imagined. People who will come to my aid financially, emotionally, physically with just a request. I will reap so much more than my $35/year or in my case, $500 for my family lifetime membership.
It saddens me that people in the past have soured peoples opinions but I also realize that some people will never be happy and will have to complain and question everything.
