Our Story

Memphis Blues BBQ

In January of 1999, George Siu (an original owner of Not Just Desserts) and Park Heffelfinger (Vancouver Wine Academy) had a stopover in Memphis while flying from New Orleans. Lunch was a pulled pork sandwich, and it was love at first bite.

Since then, they have attended the World Barbecue Championships in Memphis where they conducted extensive research. They were able to reproduce the recipes at home, and decided to bring authentic Southern barbeque to Canada.
