Smoke & Fire

Hosted by Dave B
Group active since Sat, Feb 06, 2016

The intent of this group is to give a forum for all things smokers, open fire cooking, and cast iron. Keep it clean, keep it civil. Don't bully, respect one another's opinions, have some fun here and maybe learn a thing or two and ASK QUESTION. I don't have all the answers don't know of anyone who does, and I'm not a professional pit master. Just a guy who has smoked his fare share and has cooked in cast iron over an open fire more times than Carters got pills. I've failed many times and had success even more. If you haven't experienced either of these your not cookin. I'll post a daily devotional as long as I'm able, I put God first as without his blessing there is no way I could have obtained the knowledge and the talent that I have. Remember what the bible says in
1 Peter 4:10–11

As each has received a gift, employ it in serving one another, as good managers of the grace of God in its various forms. If anyone speaks, let it be as it were the very words of God. If anyone serves, let it be as of the strength which God supplies, that in all things God may be glorified through Jesus Christ, to whom belong the glory and the dominion forever and ever. Amen

Use the gifts God has given you by serving one another in his name and in his glory.
Let's have fun
