Jason Wilson, a U.S. Army veteran, appeared on “Fox and Friends Weekend” on Saturday morning to discuss “healing in the form of barbeque,” given that many veterans return home with issues that need addressing in one way or another.

Wilson started a Meat Therapy platform to help vets. His company, Meat Therapy BBQ, is based in Texas.

“Barbeque has always been a big part of my life,” said Wilson.

And “when I was transitioned out of the Army back in 2009, it was not an easy transition for me at all,” he said, adding that he “struggled with a lot of different things.”

He found that “serving others” always helped him — and for him, that meant literally serving others with good barbecued food.

“It helped me reconnect with others,” he said.

About three years ago, he said he started a platform to share his passion for cooking and preparing good food — and “to show others” that it’s OK to have something a little out of the mainstream if it’s healing and helpful to other people.

“Life is busy, so we wanted to keep the ingredients easy.”

He said he “created Meat Therapy on Instagram and other platforms” — “and here we are today,” he said.

“Boot Campaign began when average Americans chose to outwardly express their gratitude for active duty service members, veterans and their families by lacing up one of the most visible signs of military service: combat boots,” the website explains.
