My suggestion is to join one which is predominately filled with people who cook on similar equipment to yours. If you have an BGE then join that forum, KJ then that one, etc. In that way the setup will be almost exactly the same as yours.

I think I'm still a member of the BBQ Brethren group, I participate on the Akorn group on Facebook, but that's about it nowadays.

Reputable forum? The best you can hope for are reputable contributors on a forum. Either way, you'll need the ability to separate the wheat from the chaff. There are several subs on reddit that cover smoking, BBQ, Traeger, and I'm sure a few others. Outside of that, I'm sure an open search will find some others to peruse.
As an avid brewer and fan of all things cooked outdoors, I seldom frequent forums dedicated to BBQ and smoking. I do sometimes look at what's new on BBQ pit boys, amazing ribs as well as some other sites. There are a few members that contribute to a thread I started on Brewers Friend early in 2018, titled, "Smoking, grilling and curing foods, etc." No real pros here, but a good group that like food.
Beer is my bucket list,

I will second Amazon Ribs, though its not a forum.

I have a Green Mountain Grill, so I look at that Facebook page or the Träger Page. Similar pellet smokers.

I have a Smokin-It electric smoker and the forum there is helpful as a resource.  Electric versus stick or pellet smokers differ quite a bit, of course.
