Cochon 555′s Heritage BBQ Cooks in Memphis, Louisville & St. Louis

Do you love great BBQ like we do? From Korean to Asado, Japanese to American, today’s gastrognomes love globally-influenced BBQ. The folks behind Cochon 555 launched a Heritage BBQ series to feature some of the hottest talents in the kitchen and heritage breed meats, cooked over hardwood, charcoal and smoke. The BBQ series is traveling to BBQ hot spots St. Louis (Aug 25), Memphis (Aug 30) and Louisville (Sept 8th).

If you have ever been to a COCHON 555 event like we have, its all about a ton of top notch heritage meats, tasty drinks and community. The Heritage BBQ series was started in 2012 in an effort to bridge the gap between family farms and all categories of BBQ restaurants, and is the first national BBQ event dedicated to supporting a new direction for heritage breed pigs. It aims to engage BBQ chefs/restaurant in local and sustainable food conversations in an effort to raise awareness for responsible farming by hosting events with well-known chefs, craft brewers, great winemakers, and prestigious distillers. There are three BBQ events coming up around the South at the end of the month and early September. Y’all, now go get some BBQ!  / Laiko
