Five Life Events For Which BBQ Is Perfect

Posted by on May 7, 2015 in Uncategorized | 0 comments

Barbecue, or BBQ, is definitely a celebrated comfort food. There are so many variations on the sauce and so many meats that can be slow roasted or grilled with it, and it leaves you with such a satisfying taste. If you love BBQ but wonder how appropriate it is to hire BBQ catering services in your area, here are five events for which it is completely appropriate. A Country Wedding Couples who love country music and a riotous good time may choose to have a country wedding. If they do make that choice, then a BBQ caterer is perfect for the reception meal. It is also appropriate for the engagement party, should they have one. Most people enjoy a good BBQ, and caterers offer lots of different meats in various sauces for your event. Memorial Day, July 4th or Labor Day Many Americans get together for at least one of these holidays and spend time with family over a cookout. Unfortunately, that means the person doing all the grilling and barbecuing has to stand over a hot grill for an hour or more. If you plan on holding a family gathering during one of these holidays this year, consider a BBQ caterer instead. Then you can join the rest of the family in conversation or relax in the shade. Family Reunions Summer is the preferred season for massive family reunions because the kids are out of school and most families plan to travel anyway. When your second, third and fourth cousins crawl out of the woodwork, you have to plan on a lot of food. You cannot possibly cook a buffet in your own home or even at a park, and it takes a buffet to feed everyone. Again, a BBQ catering service is perfect, because most caterers do all the work, provide all the meat and side dishes, and then do all of the cleanup as well. Graduation Parties From high school to college, graduates are looking to party and eat a lot of good food. In the Southern half of the U.S., this means barbecue, and lots of it. Even if you live in the North, that does not mean you cannot partake of the same traditions. You can make it easy on yourself by hiring a caterer to feed all of those hungry teens and young adults. Charity Events Some charity events sponsor a “price per plate” event whereby attendees pay a lot of money to dine and help out the cause. A BBQ catering service (such as Bassett Caterers) can provide the food for such a benefit. You may even be able to convince the catering service to donate some of their profits to the cause if “x” number of people attend the event....
