For a year-old restaurant in Glen Burnie, meat goes nicely not only with rubs and barbecue sauces, but also with donations in support of emergency workers and service members. In a short time, Mission BBQ has developed a reputation for donating countless sandwiches and raising thousands of dollars to help police, firefighters and members of the military. "This is our chance to serve," said Bill Kraus, who owns the restaurant with a friend, Steve "Newt" Newton. Before the men officially opened the doors, fundraising for organizations was already under way. The restaurant's soft opening last September benefited the emergency assistance funds of police and firefighters unions in Anne Arundel County, pouring about $6,000 into the coffers of each.

Two local men are on a mission to bring what they consider to be the best barbecue to more people and to do so quickly.
