Back Beach Barbecue celebrates 4 years in business with annual Hog Bash

Special to Gannett
Back Beach Barbecue will celebrate four Years in Business with Annual Hog Bash June 19.

On June 19, Back Beach Barbecue, 19714 Panama City Beach Parkway in Panama City Beach, will host their fourth annual Hog Bash to celebrate four years in business.

From 12-4 p.m. guests are invited to enjoy a whole hog roast, live music, giveaways, refreshments and more.

Back Beach Barbecue opened its doors in June 2017 and is owned and operated by Danny and Monica Cosenzi, the duo behind Restaurant Paradis in Rosemary Beach.

Named “Best Barbecue on the Beach” by Good Grit Magazine and “Best Sandwich and Best Catering on the Emerald Coast” by Emerald Coast Magazine, Back Beach Barbecue has served locals and visitors alike from their simple yet refined menu of slow-cooked meats, homemade sides and sauces, as well as gluten free options. 

To commemorate the restaurant’s anniversary, Back Beach Barbecue will donate a portion of the proceeds to South Walton Academy, a private, non-profit inclusion school and pediatric therapy clinic in Santa Rosa Beach. The school serves all children, from age 3 through ninth grade, while working to bridge the gap between communication and children with autism. The new therapy clinic provides speech and occupational therapy to all children up until they are 18 years old.

For $15, guests will receive a plate filled with pulled pork, barbeque baked beans, and coleslaw. Back Beach Barbecue will be roasting a whole pig, beginning at noon for guests to enjoy. This event is free and open to the public to attend.
