Tonight I participated in Smoke N' Fire's, "KC BBQ Books & Cooks" event, held from 6 - 8 pm. This event was put on to help Harvester's increase their food supplies. The organization is experiencing a 40 to 60% increase in people needing assistance. A minimum donation of $10 or 10 canned goods was suggested for entry into the event, and all proceeds are going to Harvester's.
The menu is Rob Russell's (of Good One Smokers) delicious pulled pork & brisket, Jim Cattey's delicious potato casserole, Steve Samazin's (Smoke N' Fire's in house grill master) grilled treats and adult beverages. Rhythm & Blues live music by Rich Berry, a Smoke N' Fire favorite.
Authors at tonight's event include:
Karen Adler & Judith Fertig a.k.a. Q Queens,
Carolyn Wells with the Kansas City BBQ Society,
Paul Kirk a.k.a. KC Baron of BBQ and
Rib Stars,Chef Richard McPeake
We all signed books purchased during the event and demonstrated recipes from our new books throughout the evening. Thank you to everyone that attended and participated to make this event a success!
