Katy, TX (PRWEB) March 15, 2016
FireDisc® Grills Founders' Griffin and Hunter Jaggard, have set a strong example to their team on the importance of giving back. They instill a strong work ethic gleaned from a hardworking family and honor those that can rise up in the wake of life challenges. They are proud supporters of the National MS Society, National Breast Care Foundation Inc. and Bridges to Life – yet they also don’t forget about the local community surrounding them. Under this philanthropic leadership, it’s no surprise that FireDisc Executive Chef, Conor Moran, recognized a local need and quickly devised a way to help. Houston-based, beloved, Buttz Food Truck, renowned for their gourmet smoked pulled pork sandwiches (aka “pork butt”) burned to the ground in a fire started in the battery compartment of the vehicle.
After two highly successful years in business, Buttz Food Truck was becoming a phenomenon with great awareness and an enthusiastic following of gourmet pork butt die-hards. This momentum came to a screeching halt when the truck was horrifically damaged in the fire. However, Buttz Food Truck owner and entrepreneur, Garrett Blinn, did not roll over. Instead, he built a video telling the story of the fire and launched a crowdfunding campaign to get his mouthwatering pork back in the mouths of his fans.
To amplify the support level and help close the gap on funds needed to rebuild, FireDisc’s, Chef Conor set up a fundraiser at Liberty Station and cooked his heart out in an effort to align the community in support. FireDisc Grills were set up and many a gourmet burger was indulged upon. The fundraiser offered the best for all parties, a taste test of the culinary burger delights including the amazing “Blueberry, Fire and BBQ” that will ultimately be added as new Buttz Food Truck menu items and FireDisc Grill raffles. Thousands were raised, bellies were full and Buttz is now a few steps closer to making the rebuild come to fruition.

About Buttz Food Truck:
Buttz Food Truck started out as a desire to follow a passion. Founder Garrett Blinn graduated from culinary school, ended up working in sales, but never lost the passion for food. While living in Colorado, he soaked in the many outdoor outdoor pursuits available, but he missed Texas and smoking good BBQ. One day the idea hit him and he decided to open up a gourmet food truck specializing in smoked pulled pork sandwiches. Buttz was born. For two successful years, Buttz offered pecan smoked pork butt paired with unique ingredients to create delicious sandwiches. Customers could not resist the intoxicating smoke wafting up in the air. It’s time for a Buttz comeback.
