The term 'cordwood' is simply another way of saying firewood. The wood we smoke with is harvested from the landscape of northern Michigan, so the resulting flavors are truly characteristic of the region. With a focus on freshness, we use seasonal ingredients from area farms and make sauces fresh in-house. Every time the Cordwood BBQ gets fired up, you know you're about to have some of the finest smoked meats around!
Cordwood is the result of a brother visiting his brother who lived in Austin, TX and promptly fell in love with Central Texas barbecue, where meats are smoked with indirect heat from wood fires for relatively long periods of time. A couple years later in 2015, with a little help from his family and friends, Greg built out a food truck and started slangin' Q across the Grand Traverse Bay Area. The food truck can now be found at The Little Fleet bar, located in downtown Traverse City, from May until mid October.
If you are looking to host a party or feed the office, go for the pre-order. You can pick up your order at the food truck.
We also cater events — anything from birthday parties to weddings. Please call or email us with catering questions.
