Backroad Barbecue Company was founded in 2019 as a Special Occasion and Event Catering Company that offers southern style barbecue cuisine. The Southern Pride mobile rotisserie smoker and wood fire barbecue create an authentic cooking style that is difficult to replicate and rare to find nearby on a regular basis. The selection of meats and proteins along with the side menu options create a southern comfort food experience that is brought to you in any location for any event.
With just under 80% of bookings postponed and eventually cancelled/minimized in 2020 due to the Covid-19 pandemic, we quickly called an audible and enhanced our offering to include Curb Service at one of our "Pop Up Takeout’s". Being mobile-friendly allowed our team to set up in a determined location and offer easy and safe availability of our food to the community. From curbside to drive through and even delivery, 2020 kept us on our heels to adapt to what was the "temporary norm" in a year we will all never forget.
The support and feedback from our customers and community has been outstanding, and is the main reason we have been able to get to where we are today. We are excited to start our next chapter with our very first brick and mortar location located in Port Colborne, Ontario. As we continue to push to be your premier choice for weddings, parties, corporate lunches/dinners and the works, we will now be offering takeout and walk-up menus to make our southern comfort food experience available to the public on a regular basis. Be sure to follow us for upcoming events and hours of operations and feel free to contact us with any inquiries.
We always want you to feel at home when ordering from us or considering us for your event. For that reason, we want to tell you a little bit about ourselves.Explore Our Menu

"Backroad bbq is highly recommended by not only myself but everyone that has tried it . Great staff, great prices and unreal food. Don’t miss their takeout events that are always popping up!"
"We first tried Backroad Barbeque Company at Father's Day for the Ribs & Pickerel dinner. I'm not a big rib eater, most of the time they are either too smokey or saucy but these are delicious. The smoke is subtle and adds to the flavor without overpowering the sauce. The sauce has a nice flavor without being too sweet. The pickerel was done to perfection. Nicely seasoned without overwhelming the fish. Generous proportions and friendly service."
"I love Backroad Barbeque. The food is always delicious and way more than I can eat in one sitting. I have gotten food from them many times and have never been disappointed. Would recommend this to everyone!!!"04.
