When & Where
Illinois BBQ Alliance
We believe that our community of barbecue friends is part of a much larger community—one in which people occasionally need the kind of help that a group of BBQ cooks is uniquely equipped to provide.
When natural disasters strike, large groups of people are often without food, water, or shelter for extended periods while cities and towns rebuild their infrastructures and families rebuild their lives. And while aid organizations exist to try to bring essential supplies, none may be as well-equipped to feed masses of people as a group of BBQers. With their catering trucks, mobile rigs, and cooking expertise, a small team of well-coordinated BBQers can feed tens of thousands of people in need.
We want to be there for Illinois communities and individuals in need of some help. Whether that is a warm meal or a smiling face, we believe that we can provide a little relief, help meet basic needs, and offer moral support wherever it is needed most.
That’s the stuff that makes a community great. Please join us.
