The Best Barbecue in CT

-Connecticut Magazine

“The Cookhouse thinks their “slo-smokin’” is the best way to create the best barbeque in the world, and we agree! There are countless reasons why they’re a perennial Best of Connecticut winner. Let’s see . . .slow-smoked baby-back ribs, pulled pork, beef brisket, chicken, andouille sausage and burnt ends, fried chicken, buttermilk biscuits, cornbread, Mom’s mac ‘n’ cheese, house-made meat loaf—the list goes on."
