I see your point Joe but it also depends on how the members are reading the forums. I've been strictly using the Tapatalk app for the last few months and I leave it on the unread section. I saw your post on the meetup without having to go look for it. The recipe section could work if it were maintained but it does seem like a lot of maintenance to keep it up.

I still like my idea of putting "RECIPEINCLUDED" at the end of the subject line.  This is something the admins/Mods could add to posts that include recipes if the original poster had enough details but didn't add the tag to the subject line.  RECIPEINCLUDED is a good tag at the end of the subject line since it is two words put together that would never occur unless someone had a typo in a post.  It makes it easy to search....Just go to search right now and search for RECIPEINCLUDED and you will find my pork chop recipe really quick.  And once people start doing this more you will be able to search by meat type or side dish name along with RECIPEINCLUDED to narrow your search. 
  Ie:  Pork Chop recipeincluded or Burger recipeincluded, etc..

I think there is already too many people posting cooks in the Grilling and BBQ section instead of the Cooks, Pics and Recipes section, and adding new sections is just going to confuse things.

That's the challenge I've always struggled with as well. I would rather combine those two sections than add a new 3rd one.
I tend to believe if people wanted to post their recipes, they would have done so already.

I want to say I have only posted 7 or 8   Recipes and only when asked. My grandfather was a chef in Downtown Chicago at a point. I have 20 to 25 2" binders filled with his recipes I have made many and would be happy to  share with the club.

He didn't cook cheap food he only used the best cuts, but I have used his recipes with cheaper cuts and family said WOW!

Just say the word and I can start scanning some of them/a lot of them. Just an offer to get started.

Wife said "No more GRILLS in this house!" So I bought a 2nd house!

I tend to think that a forum isn't the right platform for recipe content.

I like @MikeRocksTheRed 's approach with tagging food posts that actually contain a recipe and using that tag to make it searchable.
His method is fully manual, but there might be some ways to make it automagical.

To me a pasted recipe without pics or actual process is less helpful than a typical food post without attached recipe.

I would love to scan a lot of grandpas recipes but, to make all the food that he has.... I'd go broke. Now mind you all his are made in the oven or on the stovetop. But I know we WKC could convert them into a Kettlelicious  meal.

All the food I will make I will post pictures for from grandpas books.

I will start scanning a few books he has handwritten and wait to see what the club has decided.

Just let me know. What we all/most want. Thanks

At this time, no.
I'd love to have a robust collection of recipes for site at some point though.

I still say just put RECIPEINCLUDED (one word) in your subject line when posting if you have the recipe in the post!!!  See how that goes for a while, then if it goes well it might justify a dedicated recipe section.
