Default Hello from Afghanistan

What’s up brethren! On a “vacation” for a few months with my maintenance boys. We have use of a very nice offset smoker here and a supply line to acquire meat. I wanted to reach out and see if anyone that makes bbq rubs would be interested in making a donation so I can feed my guys/gals something other than this dfac garb at some point during our stay. Thanks fellas!

Hey TexArlina BBQ, I don’t make rubs but I’ll look through Amazon Global for commercial rubs to determine if they ship to Afghanistan with prime.

Okay just checked Amazon, Afghanistan is not a country they ship to. Any idea how much shipping a couple bottles or maybe we can get something going with the other brethren to ship a larger quantity.

US Mail! It may take a while but, it gets there eventually.

The APO is a standard US Mail address and does not require any additional postage fees, or any international shipping costs. However a customs declaration might be required, which can easily be completed on-line with the click and ship at https://reg.usps.com/entreg/LoginAct...ormation.shtml

I have regularly shipped to Service Members in South Korea, Afghanistan, UAE, and Germany with no issues. It does take a week, sometime almost two weeks to arrive, so perishable items are obviously out of the question.

A rough estimate of number of guys and gals in the unit might be helpful for us on this end.

We do have some rubs left from our outgoing rotation but they used it for cooks over the holidays. Can’t really divulge much info on personal etc. for opsec reasons but we run 24/7......so lots of mouths.

Thanks for your service - My son did a hitch running a DFAC at FOB Frontnac/Pacemaker in 2013.

If I had a rough estimate or goal, I would try to put something together if any wishes to contribute to a combined cause.

I would hate to send too little and not have enough, or send too much and have it go bad in the heat and humidity before it could be used.

I know one rub producers that would be happy to help out with discounts, and maybe even the possibility of a contribution of something extra. They have always been generous and supporting of our people in uniform; whether it be the Military, the Police, or the Firemen.

Then again, Personally I couldn't just send you rubs, I'd have to send you some sauce to accompany it as well (LOL).

Hey - do you cook more pork, beef or both? How are you cooking in your offset? with wood or charcoal?

And thank you for your service!

At home I like to cook it all, but here it looks like pork and chicken is going to be the protein easiest for us to get. The last group used charcoal and wood chunks. In the process of trying to get us some wood splits as the last group said the chunks weren’t quiet enough for the size of the smoker.
