Supporting Operation Barbecue Relief
The devastation after a tornado is horrific. Looks like Hiroshima. Lives are lost, livelihoods are lost, places to live are lost. But within hours neighbors, police, firefighters, the Red Cross, and Operation BBQ Relief (OBR) are on the scene to help.
OBR is a 501(c)(3) charity and it has a list of Competition BBQ teams who have big rigs, mobile kitchens, and pitmasters who can hop in their cars and be on the road in a hurry, and they even have a small fleet of mobile kitchens of its own. When disaster hits, the emails for help go out and pitmasters rally to the call.
After a tornado, hurricane, or flood, not many people are able to cook for themselves for a while. After the heartbreak of digging through rubble around the clock, first responders and victims need to eat. A first rate pulled pork sandwich is powerful relief. In 2014, OBR served more than 47,000 meals.
