Fired Up For Charity // Lagniappe Article


We wanted to share the recent article about Fired Up, Inc. that ran in the April 2nd, 2015 edition of Lagniappe in Mobile, Alabama. This innovative and delicious philanthropic group consists of some S&S family members who love “Making A Difference Through BBQ”. S&S’s very own Leland Moore, Jr., Justin Merrick, Parks Moore, and Leland Moore Sr. have teamed up with friends David Lewis and Michael Dewberry in an effort to make a difference in the community with Fired Up, Inc. To date they have smoked 3674 slabs of ribs smoked and raised over $110, 220 raised for charity. Great work guys and keep up your wonderfully yummy mission.

This past weekend at the UMS Wright “Putting on the Dog” fundraiser I was introduced to probably the best pork ribs I’ve ever eaten. And I have eaten a lot of pork ribs in my day. I will say I have never smoked ribs to this degree of tastiness. Maybe these were so good because the folks cooking them were doing it out of love and a giving spirit.

Fired Up, Inc. is a volunteer nonprofit organization based out of Spanish Fort that began when six friends came together to give back to their community by smoking competition style barbecue and has benefited the likes of American Cancer Society’s Relay for Life, Leukemia and Lymphoma Society, St. Jude, Out of the Darkness Suicide Prevention, Baldwin County Humane Society, Wilmer Hall Children’s Home, Young Life Mobile, Heart for Athletes and many others.

“Our goal is not only to help the support groups of those individuals raise money but also raise awareness that not everything during a health crisis is covered by insurance,” the team says. Most of us can relate.

Aside from the spare ribs the magnificent six specialize in beef briskets. Benefits are their bread and butter, but they will cook for other events if a donation is made to Fired Up, Inc., so book your wedding or corporate event now.

Visit or call 251-621-1042 or 251-591-2894. Great guys, great idea, great ribs, sometimes the giving spirit prevails.
