Local Restaurants Band Together for BBQ Around Orlando May 12 In Memory of Chef Chuck Cobb

Last month, the Orlando food community lost one of its own when Chef Charles “Chuck” Cobb of Git’ N Messy BBQ passed away. At the time I wrote of his death, I mentioned a memorial event was in the works to help out his family, and now I have the details.

On May 12 (this Wednesday) several Orlando restaurants will be participating in BBQ Around Orlando. Each one will feature one special dish/drink for the day, and the proceeds from this dish will go directly to Chuck’s wife and four children.

Keep an eye on each restaurant’s Instagram for the announcement of what dish/drink they’re offering for the event. I’ve provided all the links above.

I think this is a great way to honor Chef Cobb, help out his family, and come together as a community. If you visit any of these restaurants, be sure to post your photos.
