Back Country Barbecue at The Griff Offers Catering and Takeout

UPDATE: Back Country Barbecue at The Griff is no longer in operation. The concession became Cobber North, an outpost of Cos Cobber, in May 2020.

Since it opened this spring, Back Country Barbecue, located on the town’s Griffith Harris Golf Course has earned positive reviews for their Texas slow barbecue ribs, brisket and pulled pork.

The Texas slow barbecue process takes hours, which means the pit master comes to the restaurant at dawn. The ribs take five hours in the wood fired smoker. The brisket takes even longer at 12 to 15 hours.

The restaurant is popular not just among golfers, but has become a destination for everyone who enjoys dining al fresco with golf course views.  On Friday nights diners enjoy live music on the patio.

And while the barbecue items are signature items on the menu, there is a full array of grill items, sandwiches and salads. And now the bar has a full liquor license.
