Back Bay BBQ

Submitted by John Dagit ’83
Back Bay BBQ started as just a BBQ pit in our parking lot about 13 years ago. The first operator only lasted a year and decided it was too much work. I reached out to a few friends who competed across the nation and one of them came down and started cooking. His food took off like wildfire and soon my construction guys were helping prep and cook. By the end of the summer he decided it was too much and went back to competing. My brother and I decided that we would buy him out and began Back Bay BBQ 11yrs ago. After two years we decided we had to expand the operation to a full blown restaurant with BYOB permit eventually.
