According to the Chicago Tribune, there’s going to be a new BBQ Joint in town. Lillie’s Q dubbed on their ‘coming soon’ website to be Southern-style Barbeque Mastery, is the brainchild of Charlie McKenna, who you might know for his stint (18 months) as sous chef at the renowned TRU.
Here’s the joint’s location:
McKenna says “We won in Memphis in ’07 (pork shoulder category), and we’ve placed in the top 10 for the last five years. Our barbecue is going to be a step above. Lillie Q will smoke pork shoulder, tri-tip beef, chicken and back ribs to make a variety of sandwiches and entrees, augmented with “non-Q” dishes as shrimp and grits (“a family recipe we’ve perfected over the years”) and sides such as baked beans, mac & cheese and cornbread with Tupelo honey butter.” Sounds good to us.
