If BARBECUE hadn't joined G. I. Joe he would have been the seventh member of his family to become a fireman in the Boston Fire department. His love for the job is not based upon his family loyalty or even a more general sense of duty; he simply likes riding on the back of the truck with the wind in his face, sirens wailing, lights flashing and the bells clanging. Being allowed to knock down doors and smash windows with his axe is just frosting on the cake!
"When he hooked up with Slaughter's Marauders, the rest of the unit knew they were in for a real 'barn-burner'! You see, Barbecue has a knack for keeping things under control. Whenever the Marauders get caught in a firefight, it's Barbecue that keeps the troops as cool as cucumbers. With him there, Slaughter's Marauders aren't going to get 'burned' by Cobra!"
