the story

In Montana, meat is king. For my entire life, I grew up cooking all sorts of meats with my dad and baking cake and cupcakes with my mom. I grew older, and their cooking hobbies grew up too. In 2006, my dad set his sites on a BBQ catering business and cooked us ribs night after night until we were sick of ribs but the rub recipe was perfect. More than a decade later, this is the same BBQ rub we use at The Backporch. 

About the same time my dad was perfecting rub and ribs, my mom was fine tuning cupcakes and frostings. Needless to say, I ate well growing up. The cupcakes she baked for weddings, graduations, and birthday parties, are the same cupcakes we serve at The Backporch. Even better, our Red Velvet recipe belonged to my great grandmother.

Roundup is the town that raised me and after a decade away seeing the world and pursuing education, I am back and inspired. 

The mission of The Backporch is to serve simply delicious, reliable, and high-quality food every day of the week. Food that tells a story. Food that brings people together. Food that celebrates where we live. 

I can't wait to sip a coffee, crunch on a waffle, or chomp into a heaping sandwich with you the next time you are in Roundup. I'll see you at The Backporch

With nine perfectly balanced spices in our rub and a secret mixture of spices and ingredients in our sauces, each bite of our BBQ packs a punch.


We have six house-made sauces inspired by the history of BBQ in the US. Have you met your favorite? 


Our BBQ and waffles are true to tradition. They are hand foods. Saucy sandwiches and drippy ribs are the name of this game. We will pack some extra napkins for you.
