TULSA, Okla. - Flood and storm victims in Green Country are getting some relief in the form of barbecue while they recover from May's severe weather.
Operation BBQ Relief's Disaster Response Team is cooking and supplying for Salvation Army locations in west Tulsa, Sand Springs, Muskogee, Webbers Falls, and Lake Eufaula.
The non-profit organization delivered 3,250 meals to victims across Green Country before Monday. Organizers say many pit masters bring their own smokers and some are even nation BBQ champions.
Operation BBQ Relief began in 2011 after the deadly Joplin tornado.
Since it began, the group has responded to disasters in 26 states, and smoked and served 2.9 million hot meals.
The organization relies on volunteers from around the country and donations to feed disaster victims.
