Hear what people are saying about us!
Burnt Offerings Barbecue has been a tremendous resource for our church over the last year. We have used their services on four separate occasions. Through our partnership with them, we were able to raise funds to help send our teenagers to a summer spiritual emphasis camp. Burnt Offerings Barbeque cooked for three separate fundraisers our youth group hosted. The funds from these efforts enabled several teenagers to go to camp reduced or free costs.
During the summer a tragedy occurred at Sylvan Beach in La Porte, Texas. A family lost three children in a single drowning event. Our hearts were stirred as a church and we wanted to do something to help with this horrible circumstance for the families. We reached out to Burnt Offerings Barbeque and they were quick to respond and help us to a fundraiser. We were able to raise funds to donate to the families of the victims to help pay for the funerals.
We are tremendously grateful for this organization. Their nonprofit has been a tremendous resource to our church and we look forward to working closely with them in the future. Further, we certainly hope they are able to expand their efforts to assist other organizations around the world with benefits and relief efforts.

I cannot say enough great things about Libby, Steven and Burnt Offerings and how they have blessed our family. My daughter’s boyfriend Barrett was diagnosed with cancer and had to have his kidney removed. I got the thought of putting together a benefit to raise funds for his growing medical expenses. Never taking on anything like this before, I was trying to figure out how to handle food, auction, etc. Realizing how big this task was going to be, I reached out to a FB Church group for advice. It was there I learned about Burnt Offerings. From there I contacted them. They were quick to reply and explained what they do and how they could help. That week I met with them to discuss the options for the benefit. Libby and Steven put me at ease. You could tell they were all about serving others and after meeting with them a huge weight was lifted off my shoulders. The day of the benefit, they showed up with all their volunteers (who were wonderful!!!) and handled all the prep of the food and beverages, cooking, serving and payments of the plates. This was a huge task and all them were so happy to help and did an amazing job and the food was amazing too. They provided such a wonderful experience for all our guests. They went above and beyond any expectations. You can tell they love what they do for others and it shows. They are kind, selfless and dedicated in making a difference for those in need. I know they were such a huge part of the benefit being a success and I will be forever grateful. They are a true blessing for anyone that comes their way. Great people with big hearts doing great things!!!
There are no words to express our gratitude to this ministry! Our whole world was turned upside down in a 24 hour period. My husband, Preston, was experiencing some blood pressure issues and when I called his heart Dr. to see if we could come in to see him that day, I also mentioned that I had been noticing that he was being forgetful and sometimes seemed confused. He told me to go straight to the emergency room. To make a long story short, in the emergency room he was given an MRI. They wanted to make sure that he had not had a stroke or brain bleed. The MRI showed a large mass on his brain. That was a terrifying moment. We were not prepared for what was ahead of us. We were immediately transported to Memorial Herman Hospital and a surgeon there told us that it had to come out as soon as possible. The surgery went well and they were able to get all the mass removed. However, we were told that is was malignant melanoma. Since the surgery he has been put on immunotherapy treatment by his oncologist and undergone Gamma Knife procedures to get rid of other small tumors that have shown up since surgery.
All of this took a huge toll on us physically, emotionally and financially! When Burnt Offerings stepped in and did a fund raiser for us, it was if were were given hope and a light in a dark tunnel. It has made such a difference in our lives and helped get us through the most difficult time of our life. I really don't know what we would have done without the compassion and generosity of this ministry. Our desire is to see this ministry reach its full potential. We are ever so grateful for all you have done for us! You were a blessing and an answer to our prayers! May the Lord bless each of you and this ministry so that others can benefit during times of extreme hardship like we did!

Burnt Offerings made some delicious food for my cancer benefit in October 2019. They made the planning process so easy and stress free. They showed up on time and handled everything from set up, serving and money handling. The staff was very friendly and polite. I received my portion of the proceeds in about a week. I would recommend Burnt Offerings for any fundraising event. Wonderful experience!
I would like to take this opportunity and give Steve Lang and the Burnt offering cook team both a thank you and a great big recommendation. As most of the nation knows, on May 18, 2018 our small town of Santa Fe, TX became known for a school shooting. While most people were calling for interviews and speculation, Steve reached out and wanted to do something for the community.
He and his team came and to the church and spent the evening, night and the next day setting up and cooking for the first responders and community. They gave selflessly from donating all meat and sides to providing all the cookers and help to make it a success. their passion and zeal for what they do is inspiring.
