If you love just a good barbie, then you’ll probably already know that the town of Memphis in Tennessee is known as the barbecue capital of the United States. Those Memphis folks love their barbecue so much, the city hosts the World Championship Barbecue Cooking Contest every year, where over 500 judges taste the ribs, shoulders, whole hogs and sauces of over 250 American teams!
So when a young chef from South Carolina, Charlie McKenna, took home first place for his southern-style sauces years ago, it was very clear that this fellow had talent. You see, Charlie had learned the secrets of his grandmother, Lillie’s special sauces from a young age. Those unique blends and over three generations of southern-style barbecue mastery allowed him to open up his first barbecue joint, Lillie’s Q, in Chicago.
Even if you’ve never had the opportunity to dine at Lillie’s Q, you now have the opportunity to smother your meat in Chef Charlie’s award winning sauces. Every Lillie’s Q sauce and rub was lovingly created in-house by Chef Charlie himself. Boasting unique secret ingredients and formulas learnt from Grandma Lillie, every sauce pays homage the deep-rooted barbecue traditions of southern American regions.
Whether you’re prefer the smoked ribs of Memphis or the whole hogs of Carolina, one taste of Lillie’s Q sauces and you’ll be hooked.
