Operation BBQ Relief , a non-profit organization, was founded in the aftermath of the tornadoes that flattened Joplin, Mo. A bunch of guys hopped in trucks, drove to the devastated town and set up smokers to feed first-responders and residents. Since then, Operation BBQ Relief has served more than 200,000 meals to first responders, police, fire and people affected by natural disasters. In the aftermath of Hurricane Isaac, Operation BBQ Relief served more than 3,000 meals in the Helena and Moss Point, Mississippi areas.
