In Rock Hill, South Carolina, there’s nothing quite like the aroma of barbecued meat wafting through the air. It’s a sensory delight that locals have been enjoying for 65 years, courtesy of the dedicated firefighters at Lesslie Fire & Rescue.

Once a year, the crew at the firehouse break out their grills, open their doors to the community, and serve up thousands of pounds of flawlessly barbecued meat. The annual barbeque and bake sale weekend is not just about taste-bud tantalizing fare, but also functions as a fundraiser that supports the purchase of life-saving equipment for the firehouse.

A Mouth-watering Mission

From Friday, February 2nd to Saturday, February 3rd, the guys and gals over at Lesslie Fire & Rescue put in countless hours to prepare the BBQ, along with all the beloved traditional fixings.
