GONZALES - The Gonzales Firefighters Association has been raising funds for retired firefighters and the community for the past six years. Cooking and selling Boston butt is how they do it.

"I think it's a little bit of molasses, a little bit of sugar and Cajun seasoning. Maybe some lemon juice," said Gonzales city official, Frank Cagnolatti, who was guessing at what the secret is behind how tasty the meat is once it comes out of the oven.

Cagnolatti buys one every year and said he thinks the six year tradition is definitely something worth keeping going,

"I feel like we owe these guys. We can't do enough to help," said Cagnolatti.

The pork is being sold at $30 a piece with proceeds going toward retired firefighters and community organizations. This year, the firefighters plan to make a donation to the Muscular Dystrophy Association to help with research.

This year, the cooks are smoking 600 butts, more than they've cooked in any previous year.

If you want to get one, call the Gonzales Fire Department at (225) 644-5307 or drop by Thursday to pick one up.
