Catering

Thank you for your interest in our Catering Service. If you’re a return customer, we appreciate the opportunity to serve you again! If you’re a new customer, here’s a bit about our smoking process and service:

Here at smoQ we believe in doing BBQ the old fashioned way… over wood and low ‘n slow. Our process results in meat that has “bark”, a dark, rich, sweet, chewy crust. Depending on the meat and how long it’s on the smoker, the “bark” can range in color from a deep mahogany red to molasses black. It is not “burnt” or “overcooked,” it is part of what makes our BBQ special! Our smoking process produces, just below the bark, a red “smoke ring”. The smoke ring is not an indication of “undercooking,” it is simply a chemical reaction between the smoke and meat. All of our meats are prepared in a way true to our Southern tradition and are authentically good. 

General Information about SmoQ Catering Services

For all drop-off or pick up catering orders: SmoQ will provide heavy-duty plates, napkins, plasticware, and serving utensils. The food is packaged “buffet-style” in disposable foil containers for your convenience. We do not provide chafers, but offer them for sale. We will arrive approximately 5-10 minutes prior to your scheduled service time with food hot, fresh and ready to serve. We will assist you with setup if you’d like.

For full-service catering: We will arrive approximately 1-2 hours prior to your scheduled service time for setup. Food will arrive just prior to service time to ensure quality and freshness. Please consult with our event coordinator for service ware needed for your event, e.g. plates, silver, chafers, linen etc. We have a professional catering staff to attend to your every need from dinner service to bar service to clean up. Please let us know your specific needs.
