Rub's Backcountry Smokehouse

Just like in the Backcountry hills

of Texas, Memphis, & the Carolinas

our kitchen fires up fresh BBQ -using 

100% Hardwood burning smokers.  

Our grill is fired by lump charcoal and Michigan 

Apple branches, while we use quarter-split 

Post Oak & Cherry logs to keep our pits 

smokin’ along.  


There is a unique taste that cooking with a real hard-wood fire brings to BBQ.  Cooking with wood imparts a natural flavor into the food that you just don’t get when cooking with gas or

electricity - Authentic BBQ:  you can taste it, you can smell it, and we know you’ll love it!

No Gas, No Electricity... 

This is REAL BBQ!


Side dishes & Desserts are made the 

old-fashioned way 

- from scratch, fresh every day-


We brew our own Iced Tea, and serve real fresh brewed Root Beerin giant frosty mugs.  We want you to feel right at home in our restaurant: enjoying simple, old fashioned, southern cooking at its finest.  


From our family to yours - 

Welcome to our Backcountry Smokehouse!
