This past weekend I had a chance to attend an amazing event at Fort Myer Army Base which is located right outside Washington D.C. The event was put on by a organization named “BBQ For Our Troops.

BBQ For Our Troops is a 501(c)3 charity that was founded with one simple mission – “to honor those who protect our freedoms, and their loved ones, with the hospitality of the uniquely American meal of barbecue.” Since many members of the military don’t have access to Barbecue which is an all-American meal when they are stationed overseas, KC Masterpiece® and BBQ For Our Troops provided military personnel a taste of home before they are deployed or to celebrate their return.

I had a chance to interview Del who is the founder of BBQ For the Troops and travels all around the country putting together these great events.  See below my video interview with Del which I filmed while at the event this past weekend.
