Willie McCoy was famous for singing the Chili’s Baby Back Ribs jingle, but from now on may be remembered most for his funeral service.

The Golden Gate Funeral Home in Dallas made sure McCoy would always be remembered for the song and the ceremony, with a special barbecue-themed service filmed for TLC’s ‘Best Funeral Ever’.

McCoy’s pallbearers were singing the song it as they carried him in a casket shaped like a smoker, and the minister was dressed as a chef. Live pigs were present and his family members all took turns dipping ribs into barbecue sauce.
