Twentynine Palms Marine Base
1700+ Marines & Families will be in Attendance next Saturday (12/8/07) ...  
   
Tony McDowell coordinated the many volunteers and food provisions coming together to make this happen.  There were 1029 pounds of Pork Shoulder Butt, BBQ Beans,  twelve 24 quart braizers of Dirty Rice, Hot Dogs and other food products that will be prepared and served to the Marines and their families by many volunteers.
    
We (BBQbyDan) are just a single volunteer cooking group of MANY!   Our primary responsibility in this event  will be to fill
 <our pit> Friday evening with  as many Pork Butts as it can hold (about 60) and cook 72 gallons of "Dirty Rice" for the 4000+ Marines & their families.  Again, we are just a small part of this whole event as it takes many volunteers and groups to make this happen.  I will post pictures and an article at events end.

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

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.

Team BBQbyDan heads out today to Twentynine Palms Marine Base to assist many other BBQ volunteers cook for the Marines and their families!

(Pre-event, 12/2/04) - BBQbyDan is just a VERY small part of the team that has been put together through the coordination of Del King.  Del has tirelessly contributed his time and resources to make many of these events happen over the last couple of years.  This event will feed between 5000-7000 Marines and their families during this difficult time in their lives while the base is participating in an "Olympic type" weekend competition sporting activity. Corporate America is contributing much of the meats while the many BBQ teams, cooks, and volunteers are contributing their equipment, resources, and time. 

(Post-event, 12/6/04) - 4,500 Marines & Families were FED day 1, Friday.   250  day 2, Saturday ...  
What a GREAT SUCCESS... click below for email write-ups of attendees and a few pictures.  Sorry I did not get more pictures...

I just want to thank all those who helped make this last Operation BBQ For Our Troops such a success.
 
This was the first time the members of the Battalion had a chance to have a family day of Battalion Picnic since they had came back from Iraq.
 
They had already sent back a full company of Marines to Iraq, plus a tow platoon and support platoon. Also deployed was over 100 Marines in Kuwait. Within the next month they will have over 100 more men ship out for extended duty.
