What We're Made of

At Lillie’s Q, we believe in using all natural ingredients and staying true to the heritage of each region Chef Charlie has competed in along the BBQ circuit. Spicy cayenne from Memphis; apple and lime juices from Western Carolina; vinegar from Eastern Carolina; tangy mustard from South Carolina; mayonnaise and black pepper from Northern Alabama.

What we’re made of is honest-to-goodness flavor and strong Southern roots. It’s tradition you can taste.
