About Us


Thomas “Tommy” Durrant is a lifelong Cohoes resident and is a proud member of the firefighter family here in the city.  Like many who spend their days in a firehouse, he developed a love of cooking and takes pleasure in preparing food for his colleagues, friends and family.  He took the opportunity to share this passion with the city of Cohoes.  What began as a successful limited engagement during Cohoes’ Rock the Block summer music series, as well as event catering, Tommy decided it was the right time to offer this dining experience to the people of the Capital District on a permanent basis at Signal 30 Barbecue. In 2019, Tommy Durrant opened Signal 30 BBQ in Cohoes, NY with the help of his wife Courtney. Since 2019, Signal 30 BBQ has continued to grow and in 2023 they are excited to launch Durrant's at Van Schaick.
