ANGELFIRE7 BBQ "SMOKIN' FOR YOU" COMPETITION TEAMYear Started: 2011
Hello my name is Joseph Martin and I started Angelfire7 BBQ, LLC because of my passion for putting flame to meat?that passion started at an early age for me when I would watch my Dad cook steaks on the grill when I was a child. I can still smell and hear those steaks sizzilin? to this day. From there let?s fast forward to 1996 in Texas where I bought my first in-ground natural gas grill. That grill is where I learned how to slow-roast a Standing Beef Rib Roast a specialty of mine. Grilling was great and life was good but I started to see smokers here, there, and pretty soon everywhere. A neighbor had a small Brinkman smoker that he wasn?t using much and offered to let me use it. That turned into rib cooking contests or rib-offs with some of the neighbors. Pretty soon we were having neighborhood parties where we would cook large quantities of food for holidays, special events, or for just about any reason.
Upon returning to Georgia, The Lord continued to bless me and I was able to sharpen my culinary skills for several years and in 2010 I won 1st Place in the ?People?s Choice? category at a chili cook-off. Well that sparked a flame that I couldn?t ignore any longer. I finally purchased the materials to build a ?real? smoker and enlisted the Master welding skills of Steve Rapp. Together we designed and built a small trailer smoker and the rest as they say is history...
We purchased a Southern Pride mobile SPX300 and had the factory in Alamo, TN customize it for competitions....
