Hesse said she likes to use a dark corn syrup to make it sweeter
“I like to do an all-dark corn syrup. It has more molasses, so it’s a little sweeter, [and] it has more of a Southern flare to it,” she said.
The restaurant also offers pumpkin, apple, buttermilk, coconut cream, key lime and chocolate cheesecake pies for the holidays. Each pie sells for $20, and a piece of pie is $3.50.
Customers can order a slice of pie alongside the eatery’s barbecue menu or take a pie to go.
“There’s just something about having a nice savory piece of barbecue,” Hesse said. “You want that sugar fix after you get all that savory stuff in your system.”
