Veteran’s Holiday Celebration 2014

West Los Angeles Veterans Administration (VA) Facility

For over 20 years this event has been going on and the CBBQA has been invited to participate for over 8 years at the West Los Angeles Veteran’s Administration Facility. Bill Keyes from “Tropical Heat BBQ” set out the call to CBBQA members to once again participate in the Veteran’s Holiday Celebration. Volunteers from local businesses, restaurants, culinary schools and the community set up December 7th, 2014 to honor and show appreciation to our veteran’s with a memorable meal and other gifts.

Bill Keyes posted on Face book and on the CBBQA forum that “The event was a huge success; we had the largest group of cookers/helpers to date. We had to half and prep 100 turkeys before smoking which was done with no complaints (at least that I heard), 700lbs of turkey drumsticks, and 750lbs of Tri-Tip. We had so much help this year, that we were actually done and on the road the earliest in the 8 or so years I have been doing this....I am very blessed to be a part of this BBQ family we have here. From the bottom of my heart, thank you.”
