Chief Mike Reid, Aircraft Maintenance Squadron, has a history of cooking up great Bar B Que. “Yep, it was good. I have a background of catering” says Chief Reid, and so it was a natural to apply that skill to an event to raise money so the Chiefs can donate to Professional Development events “like the Senior NCO Induction Ceremony.


The Chiefs set up shop on the theater parking lot on base and managed to serve over 400 guests a pulled pork sandwich and a drink. “We charged $7.00, and we raised over $3,000.00”


Eight Chiefs and several spouses volunteered their time for the event.


Based on the success of the first time event, “I’m pretty sure we’ll be back” says Reid. There were several positive comments, including Northern Sentry Publisher, Ted Bolton who said “it was the best tasting pulled pork sandwich I’ve ever eaten. Chief Reid really knows how to smoke meat!!! And you can quote me on that” according to Bolton.
