On The Darkside: My night of cooking barbecue for Bill Clinton Pt. 1
Yes, you heard me right. It happened. Above is a blurry cellphone pic. The Wife and I were hired to cook for a Hillary Clinton fundraiser for 150 people at the Hamptons home of Jaci and Morris Reid, the brother of LA Reid.
There is a long story to tell about this gig, but the menu was hamburgers and cheeseburgers, pulled pork, barbecued chicken, grilled chicken breasts, corn, bbq beans and three kinds of bbq sauce.
The Wife and I were up in a blast of 43 hours straight to get this job done, which would not have been possible without our all-volunteer army of helpers from the bbq-brethren. We had just the right number of people for the gig to be efficient.
Below is the To-Go plate that I made for the President. Pulled pork, a cheeseburger, bbq chicken and beans. Thanks, Steve for the picture.
Our crew got to shake the hand of the President and take a picture with him. More on that in the next installment. Did Bill have seconds? You'll have to wait to find out about that.
He did ask me one question...."Did y'all cook me some baaaarbecue?"
