Meet The Ambassadors

Meet Stan Hays, Founder and CEO of Operation BBQ Relief

“I have always enjoyed cooking from a young age, but it wasn’t until I graduated college that I really became obsessed with grilling. I now look for all opportunities to use my grill and smoker. There is something so satisfying about using fire to feed your friends and family, and I’ve even found a way to use my passion for grilling to feed people in need.” – Stan Hays
