Our Story

The Pig of the Month story started back during the family vacations of my childhood.

I'm Lea.  Head Hog and founder of Pig of the Month BBQ.

Each year no matter where we traveled, my dad would turn our vacations into one big barbecue hunt.


Long before Yelp or the Food Network, we researched every BBQ hot spot and had our fingers deliciously smeared from digging into A LOT of different kinds of barbecue. 


Those mouthwatering memories were the inspiration for my dad’s Father’s Day gift a few years back. I had recently quit my job on Wall Street, and although I had no job prospects, I knew wanted to put my heart into what I did everyday.


Shortly after moving back home to Dayton, Ohio, I searched for a gift for my BBQ loving dad and came across a company that would send their "famous" ribs nationwide. 


We sat down to the table on Father’s Day full of anticipation, only to be met with disappointment. They were ordinary ribs, not very meaty, and I had paid a fortune to get quality that felt like a microwave dinner. 


I knew I could have done better myself. After all, we had scoured the whole country looking for the best BBQ.


What we discovered was that the best BBQ was made with love.
