For this week’s video review, we visited a new spot in Scottsdale named Porkopolis BBQ. Located on the southwest corner of Shea Blvd & Scottsdale Road. Some of you may have heard about Porkopolis BBQ from their Chandler location or on the radio. Co-owned by Brady Bogen from 98 KUPD’s Holmberg’s Morning Sickness show along with his partner Matt “Hammy” Hamilton. Their goal was to bring Porkopolis BBQ from Ohio (where Brady’s family is from and once owned a Butcher Shop) to Arizona. Fun Fact – In the 1830’s, Cincinnati, Ohio was at the heart of the booming meat industry, and became known as “Porkopolis.” It still holds that moniker today. Sidenote: Must visit Cincinnati, Ohio.
So with family history in the BBQ business, it was a no-brainer for Brady to not only create his own sauce but to partner with his good friend to create Porkopolis BBQ. Opening their first location in Chandler in 2012. Then, with that location thriving they set their sites on opening a Porkopolis BBQ location in Scottsdale. We have to say that we are very excited that they chose to do so.
In the video review, we tried a plethora of menu items, dove into some moonshine cocktails and of course, became addicted to Brady’s Sauce. Brady also popped by to give a little more history about his connection to the name as well as make sure that the food was up to par. Spoiler: It was! In fact, we are already making plans to go back! Please enjoy the video review then visit Porkopolis BBQ for yourself and tell them we sent you!
