  Twentynine Palms Marine Base

Cooking BBQ for 13,000-18,000 Marines & their dependants

< pictures & write-up from this event >

< pictures & write-up from this event >
Team BBQbyDan (Rick & Karen Streiff, Dan & Barbara Cannon) head out to Twentynine Palms Marine Base to provide support to the California BBQ Association (CBBQA) as well as many volunteers in providing a BBQ dinner to the Marines and their dependents at the Twentynine Palms Marine Base sports field.  We will all go out on Friday, arriving in the early afternoon to prep meats, setup smokers, and cook the traditional award winning BBQ faire that we all do so often.  All BBQ groups and volunteers are  contributing (at no charge) their time, efforts, equipment, and fuels.
Friday evening late afternoon and evening will be dedicated to unwrapping, trimming, and seasoning 350 full size Briskets.  That would be 4,662 pounds.  Yes, it takes a lot of brisket to feed 18,000 folks.  Briskets will come off the cookers early Saturday, go into warmers, then quartered and Buffalo Chopped, then into foil pans, and into the final warmers ready to serve for dinner.  Chicken, Hamburgers, and Hot Dogs will also be served.  This is the 5th year that Team BBQbyDan has had the privilege of being a part of this great event. 
Del King is one of the originators, catalysts, and unbroken link that keeps these events happening.  He keeps the Military involved, all the volunteers updated, events planned, and is ready on a moments notice to do an event like this anywhere.
