Just so you know, for both public or private events we can serve BBQ inside or outside. However, for safety reasons we prefer to use our gazebo and must grill and smoke externally. Take a look at our two menu’s and decide your favourites...
What Do We Need?
If there is a kitchen available at your venue then we would like to be able use it, but we can be totally self-contained having set up in woods, fields, farm yards and even a nuclear bunker!
What Else Do I Need to Know?
If you’d prefer to use your own tableware that’s not a problem, however we do supply Eco-friendly disposable tableware that saves up on all that cleaning. We can arrange crockery hire if needed, including collection, lay-up, wash up and return.
The American Pit BBQ Co. comes completely self-sufficient supplying all food (including children’s, veggie & vegan options as standard), transport, set up, staff, service throughout, disposable cutlery/crockery as well as all insurances & certifications.
We can even supply a Tea & Coffee station and our own American themed Desert station serving homemade ‘Adult themed’ Ice creams and special Cheese Cakes if you are looking for a sweet option after our BBQ food.
Your event is enhanced by our eye-catching servery (which we can set up either indoors or outdoors as the weather or facilities dictate…) and a team that will engage and banter with your guests, adding to the fun of the celebration.
The way we work is simple. From our 'Street Food Menu' choose 3 main dishes (…we suggest a Pork, Beef & Chicken dish for variety) and then 3 Side dishes, (say: Cole Slaw, Mexican Corn Salad, Mixed Leaf or even Potato Salad) which we prepare beforehand and bring to serve on the day.
These dishes are offered to your guests either in a bun (we will offer a GF option also), over Fries or Nachos then topped with a range of sauces, pickles and accompaniments. So...
● 3 choices of main meal (we will include a vegetarian option)
● 3 choices of side dishes,
● 3 choices of how it's served,
…where else do you get so much variety for your guests (AND we encourage multiple visits so its not just one serving per head as we want to satisfy your guests, and they will want to try other dishes from our menu, but within reason of course…!
Our agreed fee Will Include:
• All the meals specified
• All Disposables
• All equipment to cook, hold and serve the meals specified
• Transportation to site (no extra mileage charges under 80 miles)

• ‘Walk Up’ service for up to three hours
• Multiple visits (within reason…)
• Disposal of waste on close

For all this our fee is £12 per head for a minimum number of 120 hungry guests.
We do encourage return visits and have included a percentage ‘overeat’ in our fee. However, we would reserve the right to make a charge back to you if this becomes excessive on the day. The extra fee will be at 50% of the above ‘per head’ fee but we would always agree in advance what that number would be.
We are also able to ‘serve to table’ on platters the 3 meats, 3 salads and breads etc. For this we need to choose the right meat choices, but we will advise you accordingly.
Often overlooked, we would be delighted to add a self serve hot drinks station for the non-alcohol drinkers.
We can also offer afternoon tea as well as deserts, such as cheesecake selection. As a further guide, plan a service time of 3hrs to ensure everyone can enjoy service in comfort.
Once you finally decide the menu, we will send you our written 2 page ‘Understanding & Proposal’ document, just to ensure we haven’t missed anything. When your happy, then we will raise an invoice against which we will ask you to pay a 25% deposit to secure the date.
The balance will be due at the latest 3 weeks before the event.
We will take changes up to a week prior to the event date and are happy to take stage payments if that suits your budgeting style
It would be great to have a quick informal chat with you to get your ideas. When we better understand what you are looking for we can then submit that ‘Understanding & Proposal’ document which confirms everything we discuss and provides a point of reference and ‘Peace of Mind’ for both of us in that we have covered everything.
Let us know your best contact number and email address so we may contact you for that initial chat.
