Firing up the grill

Local chief has recipes featured in new cookbook


Meals can range from chicken Alfredo to ginger chicken, but there are limitations to what they can cook.

“There’s always the chance we can get a call when we’re in the middle of cooking something,” Lt. John Stevens said. “We can’t leave to go do an errand and leave something in the oven because who knows when we’ll be back.”

And who knows what they might find if they did.

“Otherwise, we’re having ashes for dinner,” McArdle said.

While he is the only one who has recipes in the book, he said he’s nowhere near the best cook in the department.

“We’ve got (firefighter) Dick Colcord, who majored in culinary in college,” he said. “I’m usually the recipient. I can’t say I’ve turned my nose at many things that have come from here.”

The cookbook was released last month and is available on Amazon. Proceeds from the book benefit the National Fallen Firefighters Foundation.
