Backcountry Back in Business

I’m a month behind on this news but since it is good news I’ll share it now.  According to the Lexington Dispatch, Backcountry Barbeque reopened in mid-September after an August 28th fire.  As of September 14th the restaurant was still serving a limited menu as it awaited some final inspections, but they should be back to full capacity by now.

I’ve not yet made it to Backcountry Barbeque but hope to someday soon.  The restaurant is owned by Doug Cook, who previously founded the excellent Cook’s Barbecue south of town; Doug’s son Brandon Cook is the pitmaster there and learned to cook from his old man.  Notably, Doug spent some time in Texas, where he learned to cook brisket, an art his son also mastered along with traditional Lexington-style pork shoulder ‘cue.
