Firebox: BBQ on the Bluff

The annual Firebox event is the perfect opportunity to enjoy live music and, of course, barbeque! This BBQ on the Bluff invitational features pitmasters, chefs, farmers, brewers, distillers and so much more.

Make plans to attend this St. Simons Island food festival this fall and experience some of the South's most popular barbeque.

The Firebox Initiative Inc. was founded by restaurant people for restaurant people. Griffin Bufkin and Harrison Sapp know what it means to suffer through tough times. When their restaurant, Southern Soul Barbeque, burned down on March 27, 2010 they didn't know how they would get through. They quickly found out that their friends in the community and in the restaurant business would lift them up in their time of need. They have never forgotten that feeling and that's what drives their desire to help others with the Firebox Initiative. 

The Firebox Initiative serves as a helping hand in the form of financial grants to those in our local Coastal Georgia hospitality and service industry family in need of emergency assistance, as well as scholarship opportunities for qualifying applicants.
