FOOD- THE DISH- The joy of cooking: BBQ-ers say good-bye to Adkins

Pig Daddy's owner Steve Adkins, seen here in 2005, will be missed in the BBQ community.
Last week, friends, family members, and BBQ lovers around town mourned the loss of Stephen Douglas Adkins, 39, who died suddenly on November 11. Adkins owned Pig Daddy's BBQ on Avon Court, just off Avon Street Extended, and his concoctions have been a familar presence at UVA football games as well as at places like the Bellair and Shadwell markets.

"Steven was very passionate about his style of BBQ," says champion BBQer John Atkins, owner of the BBQ Connection. "He once related to me that cooking BBQ gave him great joy in pleasing his customers."

Indeed, Adkins expressed that joy to Dish in a 2005 column ["Avon calling: Pig Daddy's moves BBQ indoors," June 9, 2005]. Atkins' landscaping career did include a couple of run-ins with customers that were written up in the Hook's "Fearless Consumer" column, and after the 2002 drought put the kibosh on that business, he started cooking BBQ full time. He never looked back.

"No one ever told me, 'This is the best mulch job I've ever had,'" he said, "but they do say it about my barbecue."

Guestbook entries on the Teague Funeral Home's website ( and on the Daily Progress website ( describe Adkins as someone who could always make people laugh, could imitate the lion in the Wizard of Oz perfectly, and could make some awesome hush puppies. Family members could not immediately be reached for comment, so we're not sure yet if Pig Daddy's will keep making its fab BBQ, but we'll keep you posted.

"He will be truly missed in the Charlottesville BBQ community," says Atkins.
