William Brooks, left, and Michael White talk to customers about how they cook barbecue Oct. 30 during Kinser Festival 2016 aboard Camp Kinser, Okinawa, Japan. White is a retired gunnery sergeant who now travels to festivals all over Okinawa with Brooks, to share his barbecue with SOFA personnel and Okinawa residents. “I’m a food connoisseur,” said White. “I want to ‘paint the Mona Lisa’ with my signature dishes and share them with everyone on Okinawa.” With over 22 years of experience, White has many secrets to his cooking that he refuses to share with anyone else.
