Livefireonline & the Outdoor Cooking Guild

Day 14 -25 Days of Christmas Blogging.



You know sometimes you see pictures that can certainly take you to a moment or spurn you into action. Then there are others by people that just make me hungry. Food porn is a HUGE thing now. The wording seems rather crude to describe the elegance that I see in Curt McAdams pictures from his Live Fire Online site.

He is an exceptionally talented photographer and also a speaker on all things BBQ. He also has incredible recipes.

Recently I did a round table discussion with him on Hucks Hut. In the offtimes not being recorded he gave me a recipe for ABTS that I can’t wait to share. I am hoping to get down to Ohio to compete at one of the events he will be at this year.

Recently I found out about Curt’s new venture- The Outdoor Cooking Guild. From his website here is the description:

What is the Outdoor Cooking Guild? It’s pretty simple; it’s a group of bloggers that concentrate on outdoor cooking in many forms, whether grilling, barbecuing, Cuban pig roasts, outdoor bread ovens or dutch oven campfire cooking.


There are groups and web rings for more particular topics, but this is a unique group of bloggers that know how to tame fire and cook outside better than inside. From high tech gadgets to low tech campfires, this is about getting out of the house and feeding people.

Its a terrific Guild that has some really talented people such as Larry Gain from the BBQ Grail, Angie Quaale from Wellseasoned, and many others who are just an asset to outdoor cooking.

In addition to the Outdoor Cooking Guild Curt has also created a fun ongoing event Friday Food Fave on Twitter:
To celebrate the talent and creativity of fellow food lovers, I am going to weekly select a “Friday Food Fave” to showcase here on Livefire.

How does it work? It’s simple. Follow me on Twitter, and, on Fridays before 2:30 pm Eastern time, send me a link (@cmcadams) to your current favorite food photo. Make sure it’s your own, or have the owner send it to me, and use the tag “#fridayfoodfaves”.

After 2:30, I will select my favorite for the day and let the winner, and everyone else, know. If the winner is ok with it, I will post the photo here, either by link or directly (it’s their choice), and credit them with the photo. If they don’t want the photo posted, that’s cool, too. They will also receive a Friday Food Faves badge to display on their blog if they wish.

    Diva,

    Thanks for the very, very kind words! I'm really glad to have you in the OCG; you'll push everyone to do just that much more. And I hope you can either make it down for the Ohio Vets BBQ comp or for an artisan steak tasting in the next year!
