Recipes from World Series of BBQ champion Matt Abdoo

The team at Lloyd’s Barbeque Co., recently partnered with Pig Beach in New York City, New York, & Chef Matt Abdoo to launch the new Lloyd’s® pecanwood smoked pulled pork and hardwood smoked chicken made with Pig Beach Mustard BBQ Sauce. The sauce won both the 2014 and 2016 Memphis in May World Championship Barbecue Cooking Contest.

“The Lloyd’s® brand offers a meat that is moist, tender, flavorful and perfectly smoked and is arguably better than a lot of barbeque that I’ve eaten at restaurants,” said Abdoo. “To pair our sauce with it is in incredible honor.”

To celebrate the launch Abdoo created three new recipes:
