About Operation BBQ Relief
Operation BBQ Relief was founded in May, 2011 in response to a need for relief efforts in tornado-stricken Joplin, Missouri. On Sunday evening, May 22, a massive multi-vortex EF5 tornado plowed through the southwest Missouri community of about 50,000 residents, killing over 140 people and injuring more than 1,000. It left a path of almost total destruction six miles long and over a half mile wide. It is now classified as the second deadliest tornado in U.S. history.
In the wake of this nearly unprecedented destruction, competition barbecue teams from eight states answered the call to help feed displaced families and police, fire, National Guard and emergency personnel. The group, headed by Stan Hays (County Line Smokers), Jeff Stith (Big Creek BBQ) and Will Cleaver (Sticks N Chicks BBQ), was able to serve over 120,000 barbecue meals in less than two weeks during the operation in Joplin. Food was served from our location in the community and delivered to shelters, hospitals, senior living communities and the Humane Society. Volunteers also loaded food into vehicles and delivered directly to families in the impacted areas within the tornado’s footprint. The operation was made possible by many businesses who contributed food and supplies and people from across the country who donated cash.
As a result of efforts in Joplin, Operation BBQ Relief was born. The Joplin operation will be used as a model for future disasters such as hurricanes, wildfires, earthquakes, floods and other tornadoes. We are a not-for-profit corporation registered in all fifty states and ready to respond to natural disaster emergencies across the United States.
Thank you for taking time to do this for our friends at Operation BBQ Relief.

Why is our Crawfish different?
1.) We work directly with the crawfish farmers to assure we receive only “Large Premium Selects” that are double washed and hand picked! (Actual Crawfish in Picture)
2.) We use a house made blend of spices and pure lemon oil to give a powerhouse of flavor!
3.) We learned a method of boiling crawfish that is used deep in the heart of Louisiana! This method is used nowhere else in Mississippi! (that we know of)
4.) We have some of the best BBQ and Crawfish slingers on the planet!
5.) We are completely accessible by boat and have a 500 foot pier just for you!
6.) To top it off, we have over 180 different types of beer and 30 local brews!
