No one would have guessed that in 1994, a group of FedEx co-workers would come together to create a BBQ team that would grow into a family. Ultimately becoming an award-winning company (OVER 25 YEARS & MOST RECORD MEMPHIS IN MAY WINS) whose owners are as diverse as our flavor is unique.
Porkosaurus began with only a handful of members who equally enjoyed barbecue and camaraderie. After many backyard barbecues with family and friends, we decided to throw our hats into the competitive barbecue ring. Our newly created team quickly learned that cooking in the backyard was vastly different from the competitive barbeque. *Who knew? Determined to master the competitive circuit, our hodgepodge group confidently cooked, pigged out, reflected, learned and repeated.
We even analyzed our competitors by devouring all the bbq we could get our claws on. (For Science...) Through these other competitors, we learned the secrets of low and slow cooking.
Over time our enthusiasm inspired both friends and more co-workers to join our team. What started as a local team in Memphis and grew nationally and internally.
