“Eat Good. Do Good.” Come to a free Mission Bar-B-Que tasting!


Not quite a year and a half old, Mission Bar-B-Que is off to an amazing start.

“We’ve taken a business from the ground level and made it into something that is on the cusp of exploding,” said Dave Whiting, Social Enterprise Manager at Portland Rescue Mission.

Mission Bar-B-Que is a catering business that offers competition style BBQ, sides and homemade desserts for groups from 20 to 350. It also serves as an opportunity for men and women enrolled in the New Life Recovery program to receive vocational training.

“This summer we’ll have served 5,000 people,” said Dave. Catering events have ranged from company picnics to individual BBQs for weddings, graduations and other celebrations.

When you order our Mission Bar-B-Que, you are getting the best stuff. That’s a promise.

“Mission Bar B Que is the highest quality product of BBQ out there,” said Dave. “These recipes were taught to us by a man who literally competes in the BBQ circuit in the center of the United States…This is not like anything people have ever tasted here. Its top of the line product.”

Here’s what people are saying:

“The quality of the food can’t be beat. It’s the best bar-b-que that I’ve tasted here in the northwest. And we’ve been looking for a place with this level of quality for 21 years!”


“The food was excellent! We felt we got our money’s worth and everyone enjoyed the food.”


“Friendly folks, great food, super quick, what more can you ask for?”


“The service was friendly and speedy, the food is out of this world and I look forward to Thursday’s knowing that Mission BBQ is going to be at my work, you guys are awesome!”


All of the proceed from Mission Bar-B-Que support the ongoing work of Portland Rescue Mission, but you also have an opportunity to try it out free of charge! This is your invitation to join us for one of our free tastings, starting this fall (See above graphic for more information).
