4H–Delivering Skills for the Future
Welcome to your local 4H Tailgate Grilling Camp
Jeff Finger submitted a story about how his local 4-H club is working to teach kids all about real deal barbecue.
Kids playing with fire? No. Kids learning how to respect and control the fire so they can prepare flavorful, moist and tender cuts of pork, poultry, beef, and seafood? Absolutely! Welcome to your local 4H Tailgate Grilling Camp.
Our March 2017 issue featured Stan Hayes from Operation Barbecue Relief (OBR) caught in the act of serving Whole Hog to the crowd who attended the Players Super Bowl LI Tailgate Party that was hosted by Guy Fieri. The fellows were asked to come help cook and serve barbecue to the 2,500 attendees. Without a doubt, the OBR crew hit a grand slam and brought a ton of awareness to their very worthy cause!
