We hope everyone’s enjoying the first few days of summer. For us, the weather heating up means one thing - the EGG’s gonna be busy! Whether you’re making stuffed burgers for a backyard grill out, some brats before a baseball game or searing a steak for dinner on the patio, we hope you’re doing it with full flavor and having fun all the while!

Hi guys, I just found these guys and they look like a great group of BBQ enthusiast who use their skills and equip to help others in need. It was founded after the Joplin tornado and they have served over 200,000 meals in over 50 days in the field helping people after natural disasters. I thought it was really cool that these guys took their love of Q and used it for the greater good. I donated and signed up to volunteer to serve should any of our neighbors need help in the future. Not saying you should do any of those things. I just figured that some would want to be aware that they are out there doing what they do. Centex http://www.operationbbqrelief.org/

    Nice.  Signed up as a volunteer. 

    I ate my share of red cross and MREs after Katrina while we were out and about cleaning up.  Time to give some back.

    Signed up to volunteer in the Mid West and sent a donation.  We sure could have used a group like this when Cedar Rapids was flooded in 2008.

  • Awesome effort to help those in need.  Giving back for sure!

  • Awesome. Great idea. Hope I never have to help but I'll be glad to if they need me. We have our share of tornadoes, hurricanes, and floods here so I'm sure it's just a matter of time.
