    Hope I'm not boring you with all the photos but we had a great time.

    That's right we even had a brisket

    IMG_0475.JPG

    When your at a SMF Gathering you smoke everything.

    Yes including the booze


    IMG_0466.jpg

    Notice the smoke in the bottle

    IMG_0467.jpg

    Yes the bourbon picked up a smoke flavor.

    IMG_0470.jpg

    With that I can say I think I have now seen everything. Hope you enjoy the photos as much as I did the gathering.
