Atlanta Couple Puts A Korean Spin On BBQ

Jul 22, 2019

In North Atlanta, where the perimeter meets the Chattahoochee River, there’s a little building just off the highway with a bright red sign that says, “Bar B Que.” That building is Heirloom Market BBQ run by chefs Cody Taylor and Jiyeon Lee.


The menu created by this duo, who are also spouses, put a South Korean Spin on traditional barbecue fare: brisket injected with miso, pulled pork marinated in gochujang sauce with sides like kimchi pickled cucumbers.

On Second Thought host Virginia Prescott went to Heirloom Market to speak with the chefs about their food as well as their personal journeys, which for Lee includes a previous life as a K-Pop star in South Korea.
