The Murrieta Fire Department personnel have displayed yet another way they are innovating and changing the way things are done.
This year's 67th barbecue on April 13, from 11:30 am- 4:30 pm will be different in order to adapt to changing requirements in the food handling industry.
No longer will the pit barbecue concept be used, however firefighters have used their expertise in the fabrication of metal to construct a giant meat smoker capable of holding 80 roasts. The concept, design, and fabrication were all done by the firefighters.
The meat which was a shoulder roast in the past will be tri-tip roast rubbed with seasonings and then cooked for nearly two hours resulting in a plump and crusty finished roast.
The meat will be thinly sliced on a bun and served with beans and potato salad and a drink for $10.00. A kid’s option will include hotdogs and chips for $5.00.
This second longest lasting event in Riverside County is a great tradition and we invite not only the local community, but all would like to share a great experience.
