Dave Grohl Cooking For Firefighters In Los Angeles Is Awesome


The Los Angeles area has been hit hard by the Woolsey Fire, with rockers like Limp Bizkit frontman Fred Durst and Neil Young even losing their homes. Foo Fighters frontman Dave Grohl cooked BBQ for the firefighters at Fire Station 88 in Calabasas on Monday night. Fire Station 88 wrote on Instagram, “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!” Good Guy Dave strikes again!

Grohl has launched a new Instagram page for his new Backbeat BBQ. Perhaps Dave Grohl’s next big concept will be opening a BBQ restaurant and recording the next Foo Fighters album live inside of it as fans eat and watch?

Grohl compared cooking BBQ to songwriting in a new Uproxx piece.

“You know, you work all day long and then you present it to someone and it’s almost like making a song.” As Grohl explains this he mimes playing guitar with his left-hand fingers wildly hitting invisible frets and his right hand strumming up a storm. “You have your specific recipe or your specific rub. And, you know, the best feeling is when you have those big barbecues and I’m dolin’ out food for everyone and then they start coming back for seconds, it’s almost like performance in a way.”
