A few years ago, the founders of a brand-new, Memphis Style BBQ concept were contemplating a name for their new restaurant during an evening of sampling Chef Jason’s new menu selections.
The matriarch of the family began to narrate many fond memories of the family’s favorite pet from their rural Memphis, Tennessee family farm, where 3 generations had been born and raised.
As she recalled, in the late 1950s, the family’s pet, “Lizzie” the piglet, was born.
Lizzie’s relationship with the other farm animals and the family children, not unlike the love shared between Lizzie’s cousin, Wilbur, and his friend, Charlotte, created quite the bond with the family.
Such that, when the annual round up of pigs for market came up, “Lizzie” was spared and went on to live out her life as part of the family for over 2 decades, until her peaceful passing surrounded by the now adult children and founders of the restaurant in 1978.
“Lizzie’s Memphis Style BBQ” was born!
