For the safety of our animals and students, dogs must be kept in the car or walked in designated areas. Just ask us before taking your pet out of car. Thank You!


The horse is as honest and as truthful as anything you could ever work with. He has no ego or pride that gets in his way. All the horse is trying to do is survive. So I try to work with him. – Ray Hunt

Celtic Cowboy BBQ is a takeout and catering company in Edmonds, Washington on the border of Lynnwood. We use local Washington state apple and oak wood to slow smoke natural, high-quality meats. All our dishes are made from scratch with the freshest ingredients from recipes Steve and Lisa have either created or inherited from our friends and family!  Celtic Cowboy BBQ also cures their own bacon and makes all of our sausages from scratch.


Established in 2011.

After 15 years of slow smoking meats for friends and family, Steve decided to open up his own takeout and catering business.  CCBBQ has experience at various events, such as weddings, corporate picnics and birthday parties.  Call 425-361-2299 to book your event today or stop by the shop for takeout!  Don’t forget the smoked turkeys and turkey dinners for Thanksgiving or to pick up some ribs for your Seahawks bash!
