I'm sitting here watching tv (as I'm sure many others are) and looking at the complete destruction of many homes and towns in the south and trying to process the large loss of life, reportedly over 148 and climbing.

My first reaction is what, as a member of the largest BBQ organization in the nation can we do to help? BBQ comps can put out a large amount of food in pretty primitive conditions not to mention raise lots of $$ for charity.
I'm not a competitor, just a judge and a vendor who sells at comps and has a mobile food unit and am wondering what can we do to help?
Many teams have self contained units that we could load up and head to some of the devastated areas and at least provide some comfort food to the rescue crews and survivors while they try to get it together.

Maybe some of the comps here in the west should consider diverting some of the charity dollars from their regular charities to the Red Cross disaster services in the south?
These tornados that hit yesterday were unprecedented in volume and ferocity and it ain't over yet.
We've got freezers and fridge space that can hold food and a rig to serve out of, anyone else?
