About Cordwood BBQ

Cordwood BBQ is bringing Traverse City, Michigan some truly authentic Southern style 'q. Inspired by a brother's trip to Austin, this pitmaster's passion for BBQ was ignited, and soon, his inspiration would lead him to open his very own food truck back home. From the looks of it, he's succeeded and then some. At Cordwood BBQ, each and every meat is cooked over oak wood harvested locally, with premium cuts that only add to that fresh flavor. With a custom built smoker on board, this pitmaster is dedicated to the form, cooking low and slow to ensure that smoky aroma and taste. From classics like tender brisket, pulled pork, ribs and smoked chicken to unique offerings of the hot link sausage and smoked fish variety, there's a lot here to sink your teeth into. Get 'em on a plate, or loaded up on big ol' sandwiches and tacos. But no bonafide BBQ joint would be anything without homemade sides. Thankfully, Cordwood BBQ's got those on lock, including cabbage slaw, fingerling potato salad, and Oaxacan black beans. If all this sounds good to you, what are you still reading this for? Find Cordwood BBQ for stellar eats on the streets, or invite 'em to cater your next event in Traverse City. Trust us. It really is that good. MUST TRY
