This fourth generation owned family business has racked up over 50 barbeque awards in the last 16 years including three Memphis in May Grand Champion titles, eight state championships, and ten world championships. Smoked pork, tangy, peppery white sauce, and homemade pies top their menu. Named one of the 25 most influential people in barbecue, Pitmaster Chris Lilly knows a thing or two about barbecue. In 2009, he wrote his first cookbook, The Big Bob Gibson BBQ Book. He is also the spokesman for one of the two biggest names in barbecue, Kingsford Charcoal. Through his relationship with Kingsford, Lilly uses his platform to educate barbecue connoisseurs on not just the merits of using Kingsford, but also on the traditions of barbecue, helping to create more and more barbecue lovers throughout the United States and world. Lilly is also a frequent competitor and judge on barbecue-themed television shows like BBQ Pitmasters and Best in Smoke.
