In 1830, the stars aligned for Peter Bogen and his family when they moved to Cincinnati, Ohio to start their own Butcher Shop. At the time, it was the heart of the booming meat industry, then known as “Porkopolis.”
Centuries later, it’s still known as that, but Bogen family had long left, driven to the West on a mission to evolve their love for barbeque. Long time friends and restauranteurs Matt Hamilton and Brady Bogen joined together to open Porkopolis BBQ in April 2012, serving quality barbecue, with a modern flair.
To this day, Porkopolis is dedicated to its home in Chandler, AZ, and partners with people in the community that we love to brag about.
