BBQ RESCUES! FOUNDATION, Inc. MISSION STATEMENT

What is the main purpose of your Organization?

Community Outreach and Public Information about Healthier Grilling, Recipes, Fitness and Support of other Public Organizations that promote Public Health and Welfare.

The Organization plans to release Recipes to promote Conscious and Mindful eating in both underserved Urban and Rural Communities. We offer Free Online Information via Social Media platforms such as Youtube, Facebook, Twitter, Pinterest, Instagram, Linked In etc… Also plan to partner with other Socially Conscious Businesses or Organizations to produce affordable Recipe Cookbooks, Pamphlets and/or other helpful and affordable Supplements. In addition to Youtube Videos, we plan to use footage already filmed from Greece, Las Vegas, New Orleans, Texas and Southern California to produce Informative and Entertaining Independent Film Project(s) reflecting the Educational goals of the Organization. We also plan to Tour Communities across the Country to present Lectures and Workshops on Healthy Grilling. These all further the goal of outreach to parts of BBQ Community that are most affected by Diabetes, Childhood (and Adult) Obesity, High Blood Pressure and other preventable diseases.

LOS ANGELES- “We want to make Healthier Grilling FUN!”, according to BBQ RESCUES! (BBQR) Foundation Director, Chef Mick Brown.  “And to broaden the way that people think of Barbecue. In 2017, BBQ it is no longer ‘All About the Meat’.” The BBQR Foundation encourages people to use creative and delicious ways to include Fresh Vegetables into their regular BBQ Cookouts, and to consider adding Vegan BBQ Entrees (gasp!) as options for Guests. Brown credits this style of cooking to the success of his top rated Los Angeles catering firm Tastee BQ Grilling Co., which has catered everywhere from a Pool Party at the Beatles Mansion to the Katie and Tom Engagement Party on the Season Finale episode of “Vanderpump Rules” (Bravo TV) in 2016. The event was filmed at Lisa Vanderpump and Ken Todd’s Villa Rosa Estate in Beverly Hills. Brown claims to be the first (and last) Grill Master to ever cook at the famous Manor.

The BBQR Foundation also plans to share recipes with other BBQ Caterers and Restaurants throughout the U.S., encouraging them to add Healthy Grilling options to their Menus. The new organization is already an active Member of The National Barbecue and Grilling Association (NBBQA). The Foundation has been endorsed by Michelle Mazzara, Minnesota TV News Personality and Owner of Luvafoodie.com, Los Angeles Magazine Food Critic Patric Kuh. They have also released an entry to the Tesla/Solar City’s Project Loveday Contest- a unique DIY Solar BBQ Smoker video which they hope will go viral in the upcoming months..

Their first California BBQ RESCUES! Foundation Fundraiser will happen on Memorial Day Weekend at the Urban Press Winery in Burbank on Sunday May 28th and Monday May 29th from 12 to 4pm (or until the BBQ sells out). The Wine-Inspired $5 Menu will include Grilled Angus, Chicken Breast, Turkey and Veggie BBQ Sliders, as well as Smoked Jumbo Angus Beef and Turkey Dogs. Gluten Free and Vegan Supporters can order the Grilled Italian Veggie Salad (or add any of the Meats for $2 Bucks), or nosh on Smoked BBQ Chips with HEROIC! Sriracha Sauce. The Urban Press Winery is located at 316 N San Fernando Rd. in Burbank,CA. 91502. The Foundation would appreciate support from anyone near the Burbank Area, Small and Larger Orders can request Pick-Up in advance at www.BBQRESCUES.org.

“Make your mistakes, take your chances, look silly, but keep on going. Don’t freeze up.”
Thomas Wolfe, You Can’t Go Home Again

It’s that time of year once again. Ever heard the phrase “You Can’t Go Home Again”? It may be true in some instances. However, you’d never hear it from anyone who has ever attended a Relay For Life benefit for the American Cancer Society. Volunteers in more than 5,200 communities and 27 countries give of their time and effort because they believe it’s time to take action against cancer. If you can’t join me in Griffith Park on this Saturday May 20th, at 10:00am, check this link to find a gathering in your area. https://secure.acsevents.org

Whether you have been before or not, the people at Relay For Life always make you feel right at home. For the fourth year, I will be doing Cooking Demonstrations and Samples from 9am-11am. This year’s sales of HEROIC! will benefit the ACS and the new BBQ RESCUES! Foundation. That’s why I always look forward to going “Home Again”. See you there.

Top 5 Reasons Why You Need a Tesla

By Chef Mick Brown

#Tesla #ProjectLoveday #DIy #BBQ #Smoker #ChefMickBrown

Yes- I am aware that some bad stuff is happening to really good people, all around the world. Be that as it may… you have to drive something. Right? Plus, we could all use a ZEV [Zero Emission Vehicle] to help others. For example, I hope you’ll meet me at the American Cancer Society (ACS) “Relay For Life” Rally at Griffith Park on May 20th. I’ll do Cooking Demonstrations and sales of HEROIC! will be donated to ACS and the new BBQ RESCUES! Foundation. I also plan to volunteer at the Celiac Foundation Expo on June 3rd in Pasadena, CA. Why shouldn’t I arrive in one of the planet’s most environmentally friendly vehicles?

One problem for Tesla is that the they are outpacing available ZEV Credits in California. It’s almost like the State is saying “Ok- You’ve done enough for Clean Air. Now go back to making Gas Guzzlers.” I hope they come out with a solar powered Car Battery soon, to free up more ZEVS. Tesla recently partnered with Solar City, so they can help Golden State customers take advantage of existing CSI Bonuses (no Crime Scene Investigations- it means California Solar Initiatives). This will save money on Home Energy Bills that you can use to pay for your Tesla.

With that said, here are the top 5 Reasons Why I Need a Tesla Model X-

1. Fuel Efficiency- Yeah, the $1000+ monthly Lease could get a bit steep. But think of all the Gas Money I’ll save… Even more affordable if Tesla will Donate a car to the Foundation.

2. Long Distance Trips- If you live within 10,000 Miles of California, I will gladly drive my Tesla Model X to your Private Lesson, Catered Affair, Lecture, Expo, Bat Mitzvah or and other occasion. Put #TeslaForMick (hashtag) on your Social Media and I will let you take a free Selfie, or a ride in “our” new Tesla, as time permits.

3. No Waiting List Please-It hurts my heart to hear about those of you with cash money, who have to wait months for the delivery of the Tesla of your Dreams. [I lose sleep over this sometimes].  BBQ Season has started. May is National BBQ Month. So I need a Tesla Model X now. I’m not picky- I will accept a Tesla Model X Donation of Any Color, Seat Type, Tinted Windows or not. Even a used one with gentle mileage will suffice… Ship It!

4. I’m Old- That’s right. I occasionally get carded because a 22 year old Cashier thinks that I’m Millennial. Heading South of 50 years, my eyes and feet grow tired after a long day of Catering Parties and Charity Events. Today, the Median Average Salary of a full-time Chauffer is over $32,000/year. Using the Model X’s self-driving features will help save money and allow me to rest my tired aching feet. Maybe even catch some sleep while on the Highway.  [Yes I went there. JUST KIDDING!].

5. With the help of Tesla, and Solar City we can Save The Planet- with the World’s 1st DIY Solar BBQ Flower Pot Smoker. [Yes the DIY Smoker is back and better than ever.] Could you imagine replacing every Charcoal, Gas, Propane and Pellet Grill with Solar Power? In can happen… [See Video].

Look- the lease on the Silver Beast SUV that I have been driving for the past couple of years is about to expire. What Private Grilling Lesson Client or BBQ Party Guest wouldn’t appreciate that their food has been transported in a ZEV? I’d appreciate the Free Trip to New York if I win the Tesla/Solar City #ProjectLoveday Contest. But what I really need is a new Model X I can drive for “Research” while we create affordable Solar BBQ Smokers for everyone. Remember, promote #TeslaForMick and I hope to see you on the road soon.
