Painted red outside with a yellow roof, we’re told by many that Trails End feels fossilized in some version of what they imagine an old barbecue joint should look like — decorated inside with real wood paneling from a Coweta sawmill, corrugated tin, framed photos of celebrities, sketched art, local sports memorabilia, and, of course, a bison head.
While we serve many customer favorites, brisket is the star here — dry rubbed and smoked for 12-13 hours over pecan wood. Pork fans can get their grub on with pulled pork and pork ribs, while poultry lovers can sink their teeth into seasoned and smoked chicken and turkey. Try our pulled pork sandwich that is perfectly seasoned and plenty smoky.
And while the pitmaster, John Cash, deserves most of the credit for these fantastic feasts, he’s quick to provide a nod to the old brick pit, which burns nothing but wood, a throwback to a time before urban barbecue joints were dominated by mechanical smokers with their gas-assisted heat sources. The 1,000-1,200 pounds of meat pulled from that old pit are well-conceived in a ridiculously genuine way that’s humbly and uniquely regional without slapping you in the face with aggressive flavors.
Enjoy the convenience of our to-go service. With a drive-up window, you can be in and out to pick up your order in minutes.
Since we offer limited seating, we don't feel bad if you order to go. Most of our smoked meats are carved to order, whether it's a half pound of brisket or a whole rack of ribs. This helps it to retain the juices.
At Trails End, we focus on every little detail of your experience, anticipate your needs, and provide friendly service that allows you to enjoy a delicious meal in a comfortable, down-home atmosphere.
We know that great barbecue starts with top-quality ingredients, distinctive homemade recipes and a time-honored process. Come try us out and see if you agree.
