2010 – The Year in Review

We’re coming up on the end of the year and, all in all, it’s been a good one here at Food & Fire. I thought I’d share some of our milestones:

I finally got around to naming my Big Green Egg – Bella, and got her a personalized handle.

With the help of my dear wife, we cooked pulled pork for a graduation party of 120 people.

I updated the site to include a rating section for each recipe. This has really helped me to evaluate the dishes and make notes on what worked and what didn’t.

We got a new deck that gives us a whole lot more eggin’ and entertaining space and hosted a deck warming party that featured the best prime rib I’ve made to date.

Food & Fire hit its 200th post.

We roasted hot dogs in the fireplace during our first ice storm and ensuing power outage.

We had family over for a nice Thanksgiving and I made the best grilled turkey. The nieces thought it was so juicy that they called it “steak turkey.”

We survived the “snowmygawd” blizzard that dropped 17+ inches and took down the Metrodome.

I bottled my first hot sauce.

Thanks for your readership, support, advice, and comments throughout the year. I hope 2010 has been just as good for all of you too! I’m looking forward to see what 2011 brings our way.

  1. Look at poor Bella…she’s freezing! Congrats on all the milestones. Love the “steak turkey”. Look forward to more great Food Fire posts in 2011

  2. A fun filled year, no doubt. The phrase “snowmygawd” is a riot. I’m keeping that one for the next 1″ snow we get and all of the Knoxville stores are overrun.

  3. Thanks for all of the great tips, recipes, pics, and product info. Your site is the first place I look to when I need some inspiration and ideas, and I really apprecitate all of your time and effort.

  4. Thanks all! 2010 was a pretty good year for us and I’m looking forward to 2011. Thanks for your comments and support!
