outdoor cooking guild

I’m announcing a new blogging group, the Outdoor Cooking Guild!


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.

If you’re interested in becoming a member, it’s currently a no-cost thing to do.  Just email me at curt(at)livefireonline.com (replace the (at) with @) with your name, contact information and blog address.  If the blog provides appropriate content, you’ll be sent information and badges to include on your blog.
