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 and ultimately become the winningest team in Memphis in May history.
Porkosaurus began with only a handful of members who equally enjoyed barbecue camaraderie. After many backyard barbecues with family & friends, they decided to throw their hats into the competitive barbecue ring. Their newly created team quickly learned that cooking in the backyard was vastly different from competitive barbeque.
Over time their enthusiasm inspired both friends and more co-workers to join the team. What started as a local team in Memphis and grew nationally and internationally. Not only did they expand from a geography standpoint, but their diversity was vast… a chef, an air traffic controller, FDNY firefighter, a police officer, a navy pilot, and a webmaster.
