*Need some help* Northport Long Island VA hospital BBQ Cookout August 25

We have set up a BBQ lunch for the soldiers at the Northport VA hospital on August 25.
(If it sounds familiar to you, this is the cookout i spoke to alot of the teams at Williepalooza about.)

We will be serving approximately 300 vets from Operation Enduring Freedom and Operation Iraqi Freedom that live or extended stay at the hospital. They will have volunteers to serve, and the food is being purchased by Suffolk PD and supplied by the commisary at the hospital. All we have to do is show up and cook..

Chicken ribs, brisket, pork.. sides, corn on the cob, watermelon, etc.. we serve from 11am to 3PM. By our standards, its not alot of food, but we do have to cook onsite. The big meats we can handle overnight with a few fast eddies... which should be covered with mine and blazing butts(sacco and bob S), but we are also doing 50 whole chickens and 60 racks of ribs, which will need some big pits and some attention.

Figure Friday night into Saturday. I will get the rubs and sauces.

so, with those details Whos in? We're gonna need some help.

Not traditional BBQ, but if you can use a la caja china #2 or a 6 ft charcoal grill, you got it. 3 WSMs come with me to help out with the ribs

It is an honor to help out with this!:thumb:

I sure wish I could help you. I work at Harry S Truman Memorial Veterans Hospital in Columbia, MO and I know how much those guys are going to appreciate this. Let us know how it goes. Maybe I can get the guys from Spicewine and some others to help do the same thing here!

This should be a blast. Usually when you cook for something like this its for a fundraiser and you are cooking for joe publick. This is for the soldiers themselves. And sacco was a marine, even tho he is pretty weak. HI FRANK.

Wish I could be there to help, but.....

As a Veteran's advocate who is very familiar with VA hospitals, I applaud and
thank you for your efforts.

If I can send financial support, just holler.

Thanks kapn. The pd is covering the bulk of the costs. We are supplyind sauces, rubs, fuel and labor so we're good.

Must be 2 of these rolling around, I said "I'm in" on the other one last night. hmmm.
Should be a good event.

Ribs, are those baby backs or spares?

I ask because we can probably come up with 5 WSMs and I can do 10-12 racks of baby backs per WSM.

Cue's Your Daddy 07-27-2012 12:26 PM

I can bring the spicewine or I have the big oil drum smoker.
