Mission BBQ in Glen Burnie will serve a special Charm City Cake to feed 200 people on Friday in honor of Veteran’s Day. It should be pretty impressive. The cake will be in the shape of the restaurant’s Missionmobile, pictured, a truck with a built-in smoker used for catering.
Co-owner Bill Kraus, who opened the barbecue joint on Sept. 11 with partner Steve Newton, said he plans to serve veterans sandwiches and cake until they run out tomorrow. There will also be a pause at noon to sing the National Anthem.
Kraus and Newton already have been celebrating the work of our military and local police and fire departments through special donations and meals. As Bill told me before the restaurant opened, “I’m the proud parent of a currently deployed U.S. Marine.”
The owners, who traveled around the country in their former careers, also wanted to serve the best barbecue they could to the Baltimore area. For more information, visit Mission BBQ’s website.
