The Commader called and asked our prices for 100 ppl ($15.99 per) and she said we were to high for their budget. Turns out their budget was $8.00 per. I checked my calendar and it is a school day (work at a local university). I told my boss what I was up to and she let me off work to help out our local military (love my boss).

So, I let the commander know that I can do it for them, no problem! Heck, they only wanted me to deliver the food http://www.thesmokering.com/forum/images/smiles/icon_lol.gif

I decided to surprise them and do it on-site. I still made a few bucks for the Wishland Comp this weekend.

I had one of my crew help out (paid her the ususal wage).


Menu:

Grilled Chicken
Pulled Pork
Pineapple Slaw
Potato Salad

I am tired, but they enjoyed the grub and it feels good doing something for our men and women of the armed forces. I may have landed a wedding from doing this event! :-D

Hey BBS, as a former Sailor I want to say thanks for taking care of my Brothers and Sisters in the Navy!! Food looked awesome!!! I am sure they all had a good time. The best I ever got was either Hardee's or Sliders and Rollers on the Steel Beach!!

Speaking of the Navy, ya'll should check out the Carrier documentary coming up on PBS. A film crew did a 6 month deployment on the USS Nimitz. I got a sneakpeak of the first episode this past saturday at the Naval Air Museum in Pensacola and it was really good.

The episodes are airing April 27 - May 1.

Very cool, way to go! I have many great memories of command picnics at Admiral Bakers field in San Diego, lots of potato salads, grilling and Qing going on. I was never in the armed services but my father spent 25 years in the navy so for me it was a very large part of my child hood. As a matter of fact, I believe I had my first taste of real Q at one of these picnics back in the 80s. On of the guys on the boat with my dad was from Texas and did some pulled pork that was awesome!

Good job. I am sure they really enjoyed it, and it should make you feel good doing something nice for them. They serve to protect our land and lives. My grandparents served in the military and I know they would have enjoyed a good meal from good people.
