Washed Away - Toxic BBQ at DEF CON 30

For the first time in a long while, Toxic BBQ was interrupted by rain.  Thankfully, the skies waited to fall until 9PM, but that made our egress even more difficult than normal. With the help of many soaked hackers, we got the pavilion clean and clear, and everyone back to their hotels. In a first, we did a pretty good job of collecting volunteer information! If we missed you, and you'd like to help organize next year, please reach out on the socials to get in on this. Thanks for helping us make it happen, year after year.  Feels like home. - DuncanYoudaho and the_bozo Innovations: -  Assorted grilled veggies and engineered meat - Countless mouths burned once again thanks to Peppercon - An assortment of strange jerky -  A whole-ass pork butt Stats: 800 Hackers fed  600 Burgers and dogs 10lbs pulled pork 98 degrees 1 Biblical Flood Pics:

Aftermath - Toxic BBQ at DEF CON 29

 Stats for DEF CON C&E: 300 hackers 1 park denizen on a razor scooter 1 roadrunner 116 degree heat 200 burgers and dogs Thus concludes Toxic BBQ's 15th year and 5th with DY and the_bozo at the helm. A lightning bolt, a klaxon, a true set of shockwaves, and the hacker world was riven in two! Our beloved crank-to-lift grill was replaced this year by the Clark County Parks Department. Though less squeaky, the one was still serviceable and a little larger. The grill was staffed by three crews that rotated through over the 6 hours to feed the horde of over 300 hackers. As in previous years, each received a commemorative bit of swag for their service.  This year, it was the Cheeseburger Patrol Patch . As many of the typical crew could not attend, it was great to see a new crop of volunteers step up to fill their capable shoes. Food safety improved by adding 4 meat thermometers to the kit, and all burgers, chicken and sausages were properly temped before coming off the grill. We also
