Lexington, NC - February 12, 2024

Lexington Barbecue, a legendary name in the world of smoked goodness, is proud to announce its partnership with the Lexington Flying Pigs as the Official PIG Out Sponsor. Fans of the Flying Pigs can now savor the famous Lexington Barbecue at all home games, adding a flavorful touch to the baseball experience.

Lexington Barbecue, established in 1962 by Wayne Monk, boasts a rich history rooted in the heart of Lexington, NC. Monk, who served as a carhop at a local barbecue restaurant during his teenage years and later worked under Warner Stamey, purchased a parcel of land beside US Highway 29/70 at the age of 26. He made add-ons to the building, establishing Lexington Barbecue #1, where it has remained to this day.

The iconic white building on the hill has grown from a small cafe to a nationally recognized barbecue restaurant, affectionately known as the "Honeymonk" or "The Monk" by locals. With a commitment to quality and tradition, Lexington Barbecue has become a destination for barbecue enthusiasts seeking an authentic taste of North Carolina barbecue.

Nathan Monk, of Lexington Barbecue, expressed his excitement about the collaboration, saying, "We're thrilled to be the Official PIG Out Sponsor for the Lexington Flying Pigs. Just like baseball, barbecue brings people together, and we're honored to contribute to the vibrant community spirit that the Flying Pigs represent."

Danny Kirkman, CEO and Owner of the Lexington Flying Pigs, shared his enthusiasm for the partnership, stating, "The Lexington Flying Pigs are all about creating an unforgettable experience for our fans. Having Lexington Barbecue as our Official PIG Out Sponsor adds another layer of excitement to our home games. It's a perfect match, and we look forward to delighting our fans with the fantastic flavors they bring."
