The History

Legendary Pitmaster Ed Mitchell's passion for barbecue goes back to his childhood in Wilson, N.C. when a pig was cooked at a time of celebration. He shares that spirit and a 150-year-old family recipe in every ounce of "Que" he serves. Ed Mitchell’s Que is about a commitment to tradition and a celebration of Eastern North Carolina Barbecue. The pillars of our restaurants are cooking with regional sustainable animals and vegetables producing a undeniably tasteful product. As whole hog BBQ undergoes a renaissance, We look to lead the culinary movement by doing it the authentic way... the way barbecue was done 100 years ago.
