OUR SOUTHERN ROOTS
Serving up Southern BBQ that’s true to regional traditions while still creating unique, reimagined flavors is an art form in itself. Thanks to our founder, Chef Charlie McKenna’s Grandma Lillie, a full family lineage of barbeque passion, and a commitment to craft, we believe we’ve mastered it. And with our restaurants and a variety of sauces, rubs, chips and more – we’re excited to show you why it's unlike anything you’ve ever tasted.
Growing up in Greenville, SC, Charlie McKenna learned very early on about the art of true Southern BBQ. Grandma Lillie made sure of it.
A graduate of Florida State University and New York’s famed Culinary Institute of America, Charlie got his start cooking under legendary Chef Norman Van Aken in Florida. He then relocated to Chicago to become sous chef at two of Chicago’s four-star fine-dining landmarks, Tru, and Avenues in the Peninsula Hotel.
