Peg Leg Porker BBQ Team
With deep-seated roots in the West Tennessee BBQ culture, Carey developed an appreciation for BBQ at a young age. Having parents who grew up in Memphis, it was inevitable. To say that his family had a passion for it is an understatement. He always knew he would cook BBQ. In 2008, his Peg Leg Porker Memphis Wet Sauce was named the #2 BBQ sauce in the country by Bon Appetit magazine. Over the past few years, “I have been honored to cook for many special events at the request of my good friends the Lobel family, owners of Lobel’s of New York. These events have included Croton under the Stars, Esquire Magazine’s ‘Best Of’ party and Food & Wine Magazine’s ‘Classic at Aspen’. Most recently, I was a featured Pitmaster at BBQ I.Q., the first ever BBQ event hosted by Blackberry Farm, Travel and Leisure Magazine’s #1 rated resort in North America for 2011.”
