Default Rod Anderson (Buster Dog BBQ)

I'm passing along a blast e-mail from the Iowa BBQ Society concerning lending a hand to our freind Rod from Buster Dog.

Please pass on to any other groups you feel would help out.
Ed



As some of you know, one of our long time members and our webmaster, Rod Anderson (Buster Dog BBQ) is fighting terminal cancer and itís time for the Iowa BBQ Society to get involved.

Their medical bills are no doubt piling up and they have a 14 year old son at home, so, along with some of their friends, we are hosting a fund raiser for Rod, Dawn & David on Saturday, March 19th from 10 am Ė 4 pm. There will be a free will offering for a plate of a pulled pork sandwich, beans, chips & soft drink. The location has not been totally determined but we will definitely let you know.

We know there are many of you that would like to take part and we feel it is probably the easiest to take donations to purchase the pork, buns, beans, chips and soda/water. They are thinking there will be around 300 of their friends in attendance, which we hope includes many of us bbq members.

We have asked Shad & Darren along with Woody to smoke the pork butts and make the beans.

We would love to have you join us that day to help serve and take part in the auction. If you are not able to join us, we hope you will consider an additional donation that will go towards Rodsí expenses.

If you are willing to make a contribution to purchase the food, please make the check to the Iowa BBQ Society and send directly to our treasurer, Mike Whitney @ 515 Oak Blvd, Huxley, IA 50124. These checks need to be at Mikeís place no later than March 9th. If you are not able to join the fundraiser and would like to make a donation, that check can be written to Rod Anderson and mailed to Anne Rehnstrom at 8838 Meredith Dr., Urbandale, IA 50322.

An auction will also be held. A friend of Dawnís is heading up this aspect of the fund raiser. If you have items that you would like to donate to the auction, please contact Sara Anderson @ srscott99@msn.com or 515-229-9207.

We are also asking everyone to put the fund raiser on their Facebook page and Mike T, would you put it on the BBQ Forum? The more people that know about the better the event should be.
Any questions, please contact Anne Rehnstrom @ 515-223-2622 or arehnstrom@pork.org. We look forward to hearing from you. And I know the Andersonís are going to be very grateful for this event.

As a raffle item, Stan and I are donating one free entry into Smokin' on Big Creek BBQ Contest in Pleasant Hill, MO April 1-2. Hope other organizers can follow suit to help the Anderson family.

Rod, Dawn, and David are some of the nicest people you could ever hope to meet. I spoke to Sara Anderson yesterday, and two gift certificates for Opa's sausage should be leaving Fredericksburg, Texas today.

Here is a link to the hospital journal update from Rod from last Friday.
His views and internal strength are good for my soul.

Here is my offer... I hope other brothers can follow suit as well..


Hello Sara,

My name is Scottie Johnson and my BBQ Team is cancersuckschicago.com. Iíd like to do something to help out friends from our BBQ World. I am not sure which way you would like to go with my offer? Iíve had a little luck in the BBQ World with my cooking skills over the years, as I was fortunate to win the World Championship a few years ago. My offer is this. Would it be better for me to offer (for auction) an opportunity for a winning bidder to cook with me at the Waterloo BBQ contest and learn my secrets or for me to just donate money to assist them? I will set a minimum price, which I will cover for the auction, to make sure that the prize generates some cash. My wife passed away from cancer in 2003, leaving myself and my 2 young girls that were not quite 2 and 5 years old when she left us. I know the importance of getting support during these tough times. While I canít say I know where the Andersonís are at, I have a real good grasp of where they are at. I currently have a annual BBQ class to raise money for cancer research (I have a 501 c(3) in my wifeís name) and last month was able to raise $25,000 for the cause. Usually we charge students $500 to attend the class. So the cost of the auction could go high, or you could just take my donation? I will do whatever you would like. I am not sure if you want to talk to Dawn or Rod, but will do whatever you all decide.

I also have my BBQ Teamís t-shirts that are quite popular out on the circuit. I had sent some to Rod and Dawn a couple of months ago. I would be willing to donate some of those for the auction as well. I generally sell them for $20 for my foundation, so these could also bring in some funds for the auction.

My heart just breaks for them. Having gone through this hell, I can relate. It is just tragic how cancer can just rip apart a loving family.

Please, anyway I can help, I will do my best to help out a brother. Do not be shy to ask for help and assistance. While it is hard to accept the offers that others try to give during these hard times, I know that they overwhelm you as a family. I do know it truly is much appreciated, even if not accepted.

Good luck with this event. I would like to say I will be able to make it, but just canít commit right now.

You are a good person for doing this for them.

All the best,

Scottie Johnson
Cancersuckschicago.com

ps I am more than willing to offer more private cooking lessons at BBQ comps. Not sure if they would be in Iowa, but if you feel that we can generate more cash, I am all for it.

Rod has been one of my good friends since the day we met at our local cigar shop 5 years ago. He was the one that got me into comp BBQ and I feel so bad for Dawn, David, and their entire family. I have visited him everyday in the hospital since last Thursday and tonight was especially tough to see him. He is such a great guy and a great family man. Let me know what I can do in helping put together the function on the 19th.

Thanks for the update Chris, maybe you could keep us informed every couple days. I know we are all interested and certainly don't want to bother Dawn.
Please keep them in your daily prayers.

Anne from Iowa BBQ Society wanted me to post this for those of you wanting to donate money.

"wow - can you let the team that asked about paypal that right now, no, we are taking checks as far as I know. It can be made out to Rod Anderson Fundraiser and mailed to me at 8838 Meredith Dr. Urbandale 50322 and I will get it deposited in to his account @ Wells Fargo."

That would be.

Sara is doing a great job. We've talked, and exchanged several emails. She is clearly committed to doing everything possible to making this event as successful as possible. The folks from the IBS are no different. Since I live too far away to be able to do much to support Rod, Dawn, and David it's comforting to me to see how much others are doing for them.

They have my thanks, and I hope that others will take the time to thank them for everything they are doing for our mutual friends.
