Cliff’s Smokin’ Backyard Barbeque in South Deerfield

SOUTH DEERFIELD — Driving south from Greenfield along Route 10, looking for a place to have a quick and tasty bite, we found Cliff’s Smokin’ Backyard Barbeque & Catering. Located in the parking lot of a former farm stand, this small roadside eatery — little more than two smokers, a tent, and two picnic tables — serves succulent meats with large flavors.

It was a hot day on the cusp of autumn, and Kelly Phillips (who owns the business along with her husband, Cliff) was placing briskets on racks of a cylindrical, wood-fired smoker. Phillips didn’t seem to mind the heat, and chatted enthusiastically about the menu that changes daily.
