Why do I blog?

This is the first entry for Livefire in the Foodbuzz “Project Food Blog Challenge”!!! The first part of the challenge is to describe what defines me as a food blogger. On one front, that’s easy… stuff cooked with live fire. But even though I’d really rather talk about food than about me, there’s more to ... Read More »

Over The Top?

Recently, Ninette over at Big Bold Beautiful Food was kind enough to give Livefire its first peer award for being Over The Top… Thanks, Ninette! I like that Ninette broke the rules and didn’t do the standard list of questions for this peer award. Oddly, because I’m up really early today, I’m going to go ... Read More »

Bucky’s Barbecue & Bread becomes Livefire

It’s been over three years of blogging now, with Bucky’s Barbecue Blog becoming Bucky’s Barbecue & Bread.  This week brings on the next step, as Bucky’s Barbecue & Bread gets transformed into Livefire! Why the change?  Several reasons, really. I got tired of people calling me “Bucky”.  The blog name came from the competition barbecue ... Read More »

rue dumaine – visited again

Actually, this time, I was trying to set up a blogger event for last week. What started as about 10 bloggers from Dayton and Cincinnati started dwindling until it was supposed to be four of us, then 2 of the four (a couple) had car trouble. That left two. But we were not deterred! We ... Read More »

The Omnivore’s Hundred

I came across a bit of a game for omnivore’s on Very Good Taste that seems to be working its way around the blogosphere, or at least the food blogosphere. It’s called the Omnivore’s Hundred, and it’s simply a list of 100 items that one may or may not have eaten. The rules are simple: ... Read More »

February Catch Up

I’ve got to say that I think I officially have the February blahs this year. Unfortunately, there’s no shot for that, though I probably wouldn’t get it because I avoid needles every chance I get. So instead of doing much cooking, I mostly don’t cook anything. It’s been a hectic couple of weeks, which included ... Read More »

An Historical Food Blogging Find!

My wife and I were out over the weekend and decided to go to the Dayton Art Institute in Dayton, Ohio. While there, I found an early example of how foodies captured food images before digital cameras: I have to say, I’m thankful for my dslr! I already have enough trouble finding time to post. ...

Free BBQ Sauce

A fellow barbecuer, Eric, is starting a blog called the Home of BBQ.  To start off, he’s doing a sauce give away as he’s getting going.  He’s got some good barbecue info, and it’s worth a visit. Check out the contest; you might get some new stuff to try out! Read More »

Variations on a theme around the ‘net

I usually take a few minutes at lunch to catch up with several blogs, not all of which are food blogs.  I do read some stuff that might not be typical for food bloggers… Ok, there are plenty of football fans, but how about gun blogs?  I also read some Christian blogs, many of which ... Read More »

Happy Belated Birthday, Blog

January 11th came and went, and I got too busy to post anything about it. Ok, I mostly just forgot, but I’m not good with real birthdays, let alone blog birthdays! Bucky’s Barbecue and Bread, in whatever form, just turned 2!!! I was going to write all kinds of stuff about the last year, but ... Read More »
