Smoke & Fire

Hosted by Dave .
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

Or don’t you know that your body is a temple of the Holy Spirit which is in you, which you have from God? You are not your own, for you were bought with a price. Therefore glorify God in your body and in your spirit, which are God’s.

In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God. The same was in the beginning with God. All things were made through him. Without him was not anything made that has been made. In him was life, and the life was the light of men.

Not forsaking our own assembling together, as the custom of some is, but exhorting one another; and so much the more, as you see the Day approaching.

Gatlinburg Update

This is not the kind of smoke n fare we like to have to talk about, none the less here it is with a screen shot taken from atop the space needle in down town Gatlinburg.

(WVLT) -- Officials with the Great Smoky Mountains National Park issued an air quality advisory Monday.

A representative with the park says the air quality is unhealthy for the Sevier County section of the park and adjacent areas, especially in the Gatlinburg area due to heavy smoke from the nearby Chimney 2 Fire.

Investigators say the Chimney 2 fire started on November 23 on the north spire of the Chimney Tops. It was first reported at less than two acres and grew to eight acres by November 26. Spot fires spread outside the containment area Sunday due to 20 mph winds.

Chimney 2 fire officials have reports of people flying matches and say the fire was human-caused.

Students at the Pi Beta Phi Elementary School in Gatlinburg were moved to the Rocky Top Sports World Complex at 12:30 p.m. as a precaution due to the air quality advisory.

People in the area were advised to refrain from strenuous or prolonged physical outdoor activities and limit exposure.

Newfound Gap Road, Cherokee Orchard Road, Elkmont Road, and several trails were closed Monday due to the Chimney 2 Fire.

Currently 80 people are working to fight the Chimney 2 fire. More crews are expected to arrive late Monday or early Tuesday.

Great Smoky Mountains National Park received notice of a fire 150 yards behind the Twin Creek Pavilion off Cherokee Orchard Road at 11:35 a.m. It is unknown if the fire is associated with the Chimney 2 fire. Gatlinburg Police Officers are going door to door asking residents of the Mynatt Park neighborhood to voluntarily evacuate to the Red Cross Evacuation Shelter set up at the Gatlinburg Community Center at 156 Proffitt Road. Residents needing transportation to the shelter can call 865-436-5181 for assistance.
