The South Texas BBQ Bash is a 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization that was founded in July 2021 as a way to give back to the community that gives so much to the workers of the Energy Industry. In 2020 the team of founders were working in West Texas for a legendary mid-size operator. As the Covid Pandemic set in and the industry clamped up on spending, it was discovered that some of the elder community members in the local community were starving and living without family, without transportation, and with only one meal a day that was being provided by a local citizen. It was at that time a couple of us decided to have a fun BBQ competition to raise funds that would help feed the most vulnerable among the community.
In 2020 the first event raised $208k in community charity, plus $10k in monetary donations that was donated directly back to the local community. The team worked with local leaders, county managers, and state officials to come up with a safe way to bring the community together, in light of the Pandemic. The 2020 West Texas BBQ Bash did not result in a single reported case of Covid. In July of 2021, the South Texas BBQ Bash was first imagined and on April 29th, 2022, the 1st annual South Texas BBQ Bash was Held... all free of charge.
The 2nd Annual South Texas BBQ Bash will be the 5th event in total. This event will push the fundraising total past the $1million milestone of total charity generated back to the oil and gas communities of Texas - in the form of free food, free entertainment, and monetary donation. In 2023 over 60 competitive Pitmasters from over a half a dozen states will compete for the honor and pride of being a Texas BBQ Bash Competition BBQ Pitmaster.
