BBQ for the Troops

A good friend & co-conspirator in some of my BBQ adventures is retired from the Air Force and now working as a civilian at the air base.  Recently, he was on a project that had him and others working all weekend.  So, we decided we’d show the service men & women a little BBQ love.

I received this flash traffic on Friday:

END OF MESSAGE

Based on the after action report, I’d say that the BBQ was a success and “Grumbling Belly” was soundly defeated.

Cheers,
