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 including all disposables, sauces as well as Staff, transport, Insurance etc. You get an eye catching server and a team that will engage with your guests, adding to the fun of the celebration. We will even bring our own generators if power is not readily available.
The way we work is you choose 3 main dishes from our Menu and 3 Salads or Side dishes which we then prepare for your guests on the day.
Prairie Fries are ALWAYS offered as an accompaniment with all our meals (who can resist a portion of crispy fries?)
These dishes are then offered either in a bun, in a tortilla cone, over Fries or Nachos then topped with a range of sauces, pickles and accompaniments, which we always bring, so… plenty of choice for your guests.
Our standard service time is 2.5 hrs for 120 covers to be comfortable for your guests.
From our experience of ‘Paid for Events’ some guests will eat their way through our menu, some returning 4-5 times. This, as you might imagine, plays havoc with our planning as we never want to run out of food.
So, when we have reached your planned number of meals, we will let you know so you can then decide how we proceed. One solution is a simple token system which we will supply, to ensure all your guests get feed before the ‘Second’ start.
Of course, we can cater for more than 120 (700 being our largest to date…) so for budgeting purposes allow £6 per meal thereafter.
When we finally agree the menu etc. we send you a writing Understanding & Proposal. A 25% deposit then secures the date. The balance will be payable latest 2 weeks before the events. We will take changes up to a week prior and are happy to take stage payments if that suits you 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.
In the meantime, take a look at our Testimonials on our Website, Google or the ‘Add To Event ‘website.
