Pantex Fire Department takes first at BBQs
Congratulations to the Pantex Fire Department Cook Team who took home bragging rights at two recent competitions.
They placed first in corporate brisket at this year’s Amarillo Chamber of Commerce Barbeque. The popular event took place in the streets of downtown Amarillo near the chamber building in September. CNS Chief Operating Officer and Chamber President Michelle Reichert and CNS Senior Director for Communications Jason Bohne also participated as barbeque judges. Among the other barbeque dishes the PFD created, they made pulled pork Frito pies that CNS volunteers handed out to the public when they visited the booth.
The team also won as overall grand champions of the Canyon Chamber Chowdown BBQ Cook-off on October 4. The team was comprised of barbeque masters and teammates, David Stewart, Kevin Payne, Kyle Butler, Scott Johnson, Matthew Ladd, Justin Baker, Brenda Graham and Jeremy Baker. They competed against 37 other teams and received 2nd place in brisket, 2nd place in pork, and 3rd place in ribs earning them the grand champion title.
