If you can’t get fed at The Shed in southern Mississippi anytime soon, we’ve got you covered—they’re now shipping their award-winning BBQ nationwide, so you can be a ShedHed in your own home or backyard! Outright winners of the coveted Memphis in May BBQ Championships in 2015, brother and sister co-owners Brad Orrison and Brooke Lewis have been earning the respect and admiration of the nation’s greatest pit masters and BBQ aficionados since they opened The Shed in 2001.
Called one of the hippest dives by Guy Fieri on Diners, Drive-Ins & Dives, The Shed’s family-owned and operated business has become a magnet to fans and barbecue lovers across the gulf coast and beyond who want a piece of the 2,500 lbs of slow-smoked barbeque served each day. From the heritage breed and antibiotic-free meats, to the incredibly tasty and “junk-free” proprietary rubs and sauces, their ‘cue smoked “low and slow” is what BBQ dreams are made of.
It took practice in cooking, smoking and timing to perfect the art of barbecue, but the accolades tell the story. The Shed BBQ & Blues Joint isn’t just a funky musical experience on the Bayou, it’s the award-winning ribs, pork and brisket, not to mention sauce, that wins over the hearts of customers. Smoked over pecan wood for a minimum of 6 hours, their baby back ribs are lean but tender, and the spare ribs are cut from the side of the belly, which means plenty of marbling for flavor, and includes rib tips. The brisket (smoked for 14 hours) is Meyer Red Angus, raised in Montana and hand sliced. The pork butts (“butts” = shoulder, also smoked for 14 hours) are from heritage breeds, and the coarse-grind pork rope sausage is cold-smoked at Country Pleasin’ up the road for 16 hours using pecan wood, then finished in-house at 225 degrees till the skin is bite-through. One taste of their famous ‘cue and you’ll know why they were named Grand World Champions in 2015.
And if you make the trip to Ocean Springs, you can be a “Shedhed” and enjoy some incredible Blues by local musicians every Friday and Saturday. But if you can’t, don’t fret. We’re shipping The Shed’s tender, juicy ribs, pork and brisket that will transport you straight to their BBQ & Blues Joint in the heart of the Mississippi delta!
