On May 27, 2019, a severe storm system with tornadoes left approximately 68,000 households and businesses in Ohio without power. Operation BBQ Relief cooked and delivered hot meals to impacted residents, first responders, linemen, and other organizations helping in the wake of the storms. This deployment provided an opportunity for Operation BBQ Relief to test the use of dutch ovens as an additional cooking method to diversify the menu offered.
