    The Gathering will be April 24th through the 26th in 2015 we hope to see all our usual friends and get to meet some new ones.

    Many of y'all know the drill and I look forward to the planning and the seeing ya again. Those that haven't attended in the past we look forward to meeting you and yours and becoming friends. The property is about 30-40 minutes outside Tallahassee, Fl and if you decide to come PM me and I'll get you exact directions, We have lots of camping spots right here on the property for free (limited RV hookups) we have a local Hotel that gives discounts to our members attending if you prefer the hotel thing. 

    This is a family friendly event so come join us for a great weekend.

    If you put "N Fl Gathering" into the search bar you will find lots of info from past events if you have any questions just ask and we'll try to answer them

    The Hampton Inn in Quincy has blocked off some rooms for our members they will be $89 plus tax per night, To reserve a room at this price from the ones reserved call the hotel at 850-627-7555 and tell them you would like to reserve a room being held for the Smoking Meat Forum group reservation # 83840908

    This is the official SMF gathering each year. If you can only make one this is it. We do a Cajun meal on Fri night and then sat is all out smoking day. breakfast is served each morning and there are surprising snacks cooked thru out  the day each day. Bonfire on Fri and sat night w/ plenty of fun conversation and passing of the jar.

      We welcome anyone who wants to cook / smoke  or learn to cook / smoke. i cook the Cajun food and am more than willing to have help or share recipes. You can show up w/ a smoker or w/ food or just show up

    . We do not charge a fee for attending but  there is  a donation jar to cover the cost of the food if you want to contribute.

      Some of the best times and worst times (ask my wife) of my life have been spent by the bonfire passing the jar around. Hope to see you all there.

    I've not heard of one there YET... All's it takes is some members (like yourself) to take the initiative and try to get one started... post a thread and see what kind of interest you get in the area...
