Lillie’s Q - Chicago, and Destin, FL
Charlie McKenna has a pretty fancy pedigree for a guy who moonlights as a barbecue competitor: he’s the former sous-chef at Chicago stalwarts Tru and Avenues and he trained under Norman Van Aken. Now the chef and owner of Lillie’s Q, McKenna oversees both smoker and stove with aplomb, crafting elevated versions of classic Southern dishes.
