Deployments

Since our founding in the wake of the Joplin Missouri tornado in May 2011, Operation BBQ Relief volunteers have responded to numerous disasters across the country. Through our network of competition BBQ teams across the country that have volunteered their time, we have responded to a variety of natural disasters, from tornadoes and hurricanes, to floods and wildfires. We are always ready to help those in need.
