The Back the Badges BBQ was the brain child of Eric Seymour who is a former Paramedic and Law Enforcement Officer himself. After moving into the business world Eric wanted to find a way to pay it forward to a community that works so hard to keep us safe. Eric had the idea of a BBQ, but not the ordinary hamburger and hot dog setup, he wanted an all out Texas BBQ. When Eric went to his wife Sara about the event she was super excited about the idea and the lesson of teaching their son to pay it forward and showing respect to those who are willing to give all. Eric next turned to his then office manager and right hand Sasha (the heavy lifter) and said, " I have an idea". 4 weeks later and largely due to Sasha that first year we launched with a bang. Between Sara, Eric and Sasha they took the idea and made it what it has become today.
We are so excited to have turned our small pay it forward project into Back the Badges BBQ Foundation a 501 (c)(3)..

What started out as our flagship event we have grown to perfect over the years. Our Texas BBQs are meant to show a little love to the first responder community for all they do for us. On the day of the event we cover breakfast, lunch and dinner hitting every shift in a day. We pride ourselves in making sure that FIRE/EMS/POLICE/DISPATCH are all included.
