Meet BBQ owner John Wysong served the last order of barbecue from his tiny Mississippi Marketplace food cart on Sunday. Despite hefty accolades from Willamette Week and The Oregonian for his Memphis-not-Kansas-City style barbecue ribs, Wysong says he is going to take up his old mantle in construction. Mississippi Marketplace plans to add two new carts in the place of Meet BBQ. Hash It Out and 503 Burgers, will open sometime in late June and July, respectively.
