What is BBQ

Barbeque or BBQ is a cooking method, a cooking device, a style of food, and a name for a meal or gathering at which this style of food is cooked and served. More often than not, barbecue refers to the cooking method itself.

When you BBQ you are cooking with a slow circumvented unit of hot air with the lid closed. Grilling is done with the lid up and you’re cooking with direct heat on the bottom, instead of all around the source. “You grill a burger and you BBQ a pork butt.”

BBQ Catering Experience Counts

We use Pecan hardwood in our Southern Pride Rotisserie Smoker. It has as a sweet, nutty, and rich flavor, similar to hickory, which is great for poultry.  It’s also strong enough to stand up to beef, pork, and game meats as well.   Finally, the magic happens in the smoker; some things get just a few minutes and others spend hours in the smoker.  Only an experienced Grill Master or Chef knows all these tricks of the trade.  

Our Coordinators can help with the planning and our professional Catering Staff will take care of all the running around and cleaning on the day of the event.

How we make BBQ Catering Safe

Outdoor Events are becoming more and more popular these days; giving us all a chance to socialize with others while maintaining safe social distancing.  Wouldn’t it be nice to get together with your friends from the office that you don’t see as much since most of us are working from home.

We have implemented additional safety procedures and have recommendations on how to expedite your guests through the buffet in smaller groups.  Hand Sanitizer placed at the start of the buffet to keep the serving utensils clean. Or our Catering Staff can ‘serve’ the food from behind the buffet so noone has to touch the serving utensils.  Desserts can be individually wrapped and Beverages served in individual bottles or cans.

Our staff always wear masks and gloves in the kitchen and out in the field. We monitor the temperature and over-all health of all our employees very closely – most of us are family after all. 

Full Service Event Catering

Our Full Service BBQ Catering packages are designed to help our clients plan and execute the details for their large scale events. 
Our Catering Staff arrives on location early to stage and create a buffet presentation that will enhance the party theme.  Our Chef and his kitchen staff spend hours prepping & smoking only the best cuts of meat.  Freddy has the best home-style recipes for all the traditional BBQ side dishes and Chef Gile brings current flavors and trends to his specialty side dishes. 

The best and most important part of hiring a caterer; we do all the running around and we do all the clean up.  This gives you the best benefit of all; as the host, you will have more time to spend with your guests and enjoy the event.  

They love the food. They love the service.

I recently had a very large amount of meals prepared and delivered for a variety of individuals and they were on time and very organized. The amount of people whom received these meals all reported 10/10 whether it was Meatloaf, Teriyaki Chicken, Burgundy Chicken, Brisket, Turkey or Spaghetti and Meatballs and others. I recommend anyone that wants a home cooked meal for your family, friends or neighbors to order from Fat Freddy’s Catering, you won’t be disappointed 😋

We have used Fat Freddys twice for two very important occasions. Both times the food and service were outstanding. Lisa helped us with our most recent event. She was very helpful and patient with my indecision and last minute changes.  Lisa was always kind and super easy to work with. We ordered several heavy appetizers and quite frankly the food was all the rage at our event. The set up crew was on time did an excellent job of setting everything up down to making the napkin fan! The utensils were top notch and every detail was considered. We will continuum to use Fat Freddys for our next event - we appreciate knowing we can count on good service and a Hugh quality product. A very good value!!
