Lillie’s Q’s mission is to bring people together at the table to experience authentically crafted Southern barbeque flavors true to their regions and traditions. As Chef Charlie McKenna traveled the BBQ competition circuit from Memphis to Alabama and the Carolinas, he created a Lillie’s Q sauce unique to each region and won the Memphis in May World Championship Barbecue Cooking Contest along the way…twice! Now, he’s serving up Southern BBQ that’s true to regional traditions while still creating unique, reimagined flavors—it’s an art form. Thanks to Grandma Lillie, a full family lineage of BBQ passion, and a commitment to craft, we believe we’ve mastered it. With four restaurants and a variety of sauces, rubs, mixes and more—we’re excited to show you why it’s unlike anything you’ve ever tasted. Because we want everyone to enjoy the Southern flavors of Lillie’s Q, we created Zero Sugar Carolina. Our Zero Sugar Carolina Barbeque Sauce with tomato vinegar is balanced and tangy. It’s crafted with apple and juices from Western Carolina that give it that one-of-a-kind character you’ll love. All of our BBQ sauces can go on basically everything, but our Zero Sugar Carolina BBQ Sauce is the perfect grilling sauce for pulled pork, brisket, and smoked chicken. Lillie’s Q uses keto-friendly ingredients that are worth writing home about—and this one is sugar-free! Our barbeque sauces are also made with gluten-free ingredients. That means no high fructose corn syrup, no MSG, no modified food starches, and no artificial colors or preservatives. We like to call it #SmotherlyLove. So with every bite, know you’re enjoying flavors as authentic as the places they come from.
OUR PREMIUM BBQ SAUCES GO ON BASICALLY EVERYTHING: We love to use our barbeque sauces on basically everything! But, our Zero Sugar Carolina BBQ Sauce is the perfect grilling sauce for pulled pork, brisket, & smoked chicken.
OUR GOURMET SAUCES HAVE A STORY TO TELL: Why No. 40? On any pilgrimage from our hometown Chicago, hopping on Route 40 always means you’re close to barbeque havens like Shelby, Greensboro, & Asheville. 657 miles have never been so worth it.
KETO-FRIENDLY INGREDIENTS TO WRITE HOME ABOUT: Our barbeque sauces are made from a unique blend of keto-friendly ingredients. That means no high fructose corn syrup, no preservatives, made with gluten-free ingredients, & more.
AUTHENTICALLY CRAFTED SOUTHERN BBQ: Serving up barbeque that is true to regional traditions while creating unique, reimagined flavors is an art form. Thanks to Grandma Lillie, a full family lineage of BBQ passion—we believe we’ve mastered it.
