Once again We partnered up with Operation BBQ Relief and headed over to Live Oak Florida to help feed those impacted by Hurricane Idalia. In 7 Days, we were able to fix 168,000 meals. We cooked on 10 Commercial Ole Hickory pits and had a great team of PitMasters and helpers. The numbers are daunting, and the work was exhausting.... and all worth it.... because THIS is what we do... bring HOPE to people when they need it most.
And here is a little Poem I wrote after one of the morning processing sessions:
As I sit here in my truck
Drinking in the ac and taking a break...
Covered In Grease, head to toe
Sore and stiff and way past tired...
5600 pork dinners out
Jump on loins... and start slicing...
17,280 and they are done
Oh. It's 10:30 in the morning...
Load up 300 carnita pork dinners.
Ok, take a break
Then we load 880 butts for tomorrow morning.. 22,000 meals
Disaster relief deployment
New Friends, new stories...Proud to serve our neighbors
You gotta love it!
