To all the @losangelesfiredepartment and @lacountyfd heroes we met last night…thank you. It was an honor to cook for you. – Dave . https://www.lafd.org/fire-stations/station-73 . https://www.lafd.org/fire-stations/station-81 . https://www.lafd.org/fire-stations/station-83 . https://www.lafd.org/fire-stations/station-68 . https://www.lafd.org/fire-stations/station-89 . https://locator.lacounty.gov/fire/Location/3046512/los-angeles-county-fire-department—station-125 . #backbeatbbq
Grohl paid a surprise visit to the firefighters at Fire Station 68 in Calabasas, Calif. on Monday night, cooking various types of barbecue meats for everyone. The musician’s deed is to show appreciation for the local southern California first responders who are risking their lives to put an end to the wildfires the area has been battling.
The fire station posted a photo of the brave men and women joined by Grohl’s family to their Instagram page: “It was awesome to get a visit tonight from Dave Grohl of the @foofighters . He also treated us to some of his own @backbeatbbq . Thanks Dave! It was excellent!”
The deadly blazes have affected areas in Thousand Oaks, Calabasas and Malibu, destroying hundreds of homes with more than 42 confirmed deaths and hundreds missing. The fire is one of the deadliest in Californian history.
Since September, Grohl has been working part-time at the Beached Pig food truck in Studio City, Los Angeles. The Beached Pig is part of The Valley Urban Market which is an outdoor food court co-founded by Dave Grohl’s wife Jordyn.
