Free BBQ For Everyone at Lillie's Q!

Bucktown BBQ joint Lillie's Q must have had one helluva first year because owner/chef Charlie McKenna's decided to give away free smoked whole hogs during his anniversary party on August 1.
We suggest showing up before 9pm, when the festivities officially begin, in order to snag prime spots in the dining room or at the bar. Then you won't have to elbow for space when McKenna starts passing out all the different cuts of his signature, award-winning 30-pound smoked whole hogs. That's right, you'll be treated to tenderloin, pulled shoulder, ham, belly, pulled shoulder and even the bark.
And there's more:
**During the event, guests will get $1 samples of Lillie's latest moonshine cocktail, the Lillie's Q-Rita, made with Patron Silver, Grand Marnier, Junior Johnson's Midnight Moon Carolina Moonshine and Lillie's Q "Smoky" Memphis-style BBQ sauce and house-made sour mix. It's rimmed with the Lillie's Q signature "Carolina Dirt" rub.
**There's still time to make a video stating why YOU deserve to win a whole hog dinner that's normally sold for $325. One lucky diner will win a 30-pound whole hog with eight appetizers and sides for six to eight people. Participants must post videos on Lillie's Q's Facebook page by noon August 1 to be eligible to win (The winner will be announced at noon August 2 on the Lillie’s Q Facebook page).
