Earlier this month Commerce SEO Editor Sarah and I traveled to QVC’s annual Foodie Fest, and we were treated to a full day of delicious dishes and treats. We had a chance to try a number of mail-order brands IRL, ranging from Kansas City Steak’s filet mignon to Just Bagels’ focaccia Parmesan-flavored bagel. We determined that both are definitely worth stocking in your freezer if you want to have high-quality foods instantly at your fingertips.

Another brand that earned high marks in our books? Corky’s BBQ, a Memphis-based company that ships Southern-style barbecue right to your door. As a born-and-raised Texan, this was the brand I was most looking forward to sampling, and my expectations were met and then some. That’s why I’m planning on bringing its competition-style pulled chicken to every get-together this summer. Read on to find out why you should, too!

What Is Corky’s BBQ Four-Count 1-lb Competition Style Pulled Chicken?

With locations in Tennessee and Arkansas, Corky’s has been serving hickory and charcoal BBQ and ribs since the early ’80s. After getting requests from out-of-towners and native Memphians who’d moved away, the company began shipping their food only a few years later — so you can be sure that Corky’s knows what it’s doing. Its partnership with QVC started over two decades ago, and the brand’s been appearing on the network regularly ever since, claiming to set records in BBQ sales nationwide. It comes as no surprise, since Corky’s has been voted the top BBQ joint in Memphis 22 times.

The pulled chicken is its top seller at QVC. It’s cooked low and slow with multiple seasonings and covered with the brand’s award-winning barbecue sauce. All you have to do is thaw and bake it at 350℉ for 15 minutes, toast a brioche bun, and add your toppings — it’s that easy. Not to mention, it also will cut down on the messiness of making it yourself. Your order will include four 1-pound packs of pulled chicken in your choice of sauce: honey BBQ, original, or both.
