This past Friday afternoon till about Saturday noon I led our BBQ team to smoke 100 5-6 pound pork butts for a fire department fundraiser. Earlier this week I made up pints of both my regular and spicy BBQ sauce as well as some pickled jalapeños. All to help raise funds for my fire department and to spread community cheer!
It’s no secret that fire and emergency services are expensive to operate. Funding these vital services is a never-ending battle.
This past October The Lone Oak Volunteer Fire Department (my department) was invited to participate in Smoke on the Mountain, a fundraising event that included a BBQ competition, music, beverages, food, and more to benefit a neighboring civic league and our fire department.
