About Hog Tide BBQ

Hog Tide Bar-B-Que is a fast casual, destination restaurant providing diners in southwest Missouri with a competition style, pit-to-plate, BBQ experience. The restaurant will feature a menu based on USDA prime grade smoked meats, paired with a deep selection of award winning sides and desserts.

Bar-B-Que has been a McNatt family tradition for three generations. In fact, it dates back to 1934 when a famous southern Bar-B-Que recipe was handed down to Grandpa (Eldon) McNatt. Grandpa subsequently began to offer it in his SW Missouri restaurant(s). Soon the popularity of Grandpa┬┤s Bar-B-Que spread and the family became a frequent caterer to the community. While many have tried to purchase the recipe, the family has kept it a secret.
