Veterans Fire Up The Grill With Wounded Warrior Project

KNIGHTDALE, N.C., Jan. 5, 2017 -- During a recent Wounded Warrior Project® (WWP) connection event at Prime Barbecue, a specialty catering service that also offers barbecue preparation classes, injured veterans talked grilling and received trade secrets from an expert. Gathering around the pits, participants spent the afternoon learning cooking techniques and connecting with fellow service members in an environment that accommodates their physical injuries and social anxieties.

More than 35 veterans attended the Ultimate School of BBQ, where barbecue pitmaster Christopher Prieto – featured on the TLC television series "BBQ Pitmasters" – taught them tips for preparing beef brisket and smoked turkey.
