Hard Smoke BBQ Turns Up the Heat with Classic Favorites

By Marina Jokic

Baby back ribs, baked beans, coleslaw, and mac n' cheese are the quintessential comfort foods. Hard Smoke BBQ Catering in Frisco, Texas has all of these and more. If you are craving authentic Texan BBQ, Hard Smoke should be on your list of preferred restaurants and caterers. Delicately smoked meats that fall off the bone are par for the course at Hard Smoke.

"When you hear people say [that] they don't like brisket, it is because it is stringy and chewy; you will never find that at Hard Smoke," co-owner Terry Griffith said. "Once you refine your recipe, it is important that you remain consistent [because that is] what develops your following."

People drive for miles to get to Hard Smoke and enjoy the food. Crowd favorites include their pulled pork, whole smoked chicken, and mustard potato salad. Delicious foods prepared simply and with love is what Hard Smoke BBQ does best. The restaurant keeps their customers enthralled by the impeccable service and excellent recipes.

"All of our recipes have been handed down through our families for generations," Griffith said. "When people taste our potato salad, the first thing they say is 'that tastes just like my grandma's [and] the reason is that it is James' great-grandmother's recipe."

At Hard Smoke BBQ, all of the meat rubs have been developed through years of trial and error until the perfect consistency and flavor were achieved. On multiple occasions, Griffith points out, the cooking staff at the smokehouse was personally praised for their recipes by five-star chefs and restaurateurs from the Dallas Fort Worth area. Following a recipe to the letter is not enough to make a catering business successful, of course. Adding a little TLC to everything they prepare is the elusive ingredient that makes all the difference in the end

In the Southern tradition, food is a great unifying force that bonds people and forges relationships. Through food, Hard Smoke BBQ brings people together to collectively relish in the delectable, nostalgia-inducing flavors of an old-fashioned Southern BBQ. The generous portions that the smokehouse offers at reasonable prices is definitely a draw for many of its customers.

"We are hoping someday to grow into a store front where people will be able to just drop in and enjoy one another, have good conversations, and relax around the dinner table again," Griffith said. "We see our place as being a small ten-table restaurant with a country feel, good food, and beverage."
