Frank’s Backyard BBQ

What began as Rob Schrum pursuing his passion for barbecuing has turned into a full-time focus. He and his wife, Patty Schrum, co-own the family business Frank’s Backyard BBQ in Cedar Lake.

“It came from cooking out in our backyard with our friends and neighbors. Everybody loved it and it blew up. Everybody was telling him how good it was”

“Our menu is not large, just honed in on the quality of the food. It’s simple and fresh.”

“We just want to keep it family-oriented. It’s true wood-fired barbecue, which makes it authentic. It’s a flavor thing,”
