I have ordered holiday meals, and custom orders for 3 years. My family loves everything that James creates. The flavor of his food is incredible! James is an accomplished Chef, his recipes have been developed over time from scratch. Every aspect is homemade, nothing off the shelf. He was raised with a wonderful Grandmother that taught him tried and true methods of perfection. James loves his Profession, his attention to detail and classic technique create a taste profile that is exceptional and unique. James and his staff are some of the nicest people you will ever meet. I have tasted BBQ all over the country. Hard Smoke BBQ is the very best you will find. Live, Love, Laugh, BBQ says it all. More...

I don't how to express how awesome Hard Smoke BBQ is for making our wedding so great. We found these guys while searching for a caterer for our wedding and they were top notch! 1. The FoodThe food is honestly the best BBQ I've ever had. For the tasting, they came to our home and set up eveything from plates, napkins, utensils, drinks, and atmosphere. No joke - they transport you to your wedding day so you know what to expect the day of. I don't know what sorcery they put in their Texas mac n cheese, but OMG it is to die for! The brisket was so tender, flavorful and so so yummy! I usually dont like the chicken from BBQ places as it tends to be dry but this was no where near the case with Hard Smoke. It was perfect and tender! Each individual side dish was on point. The baked beans, potato salad, coleslaw, etc were so freaking good. You know how usually there's that side dish that no one touches? That will not happen here! I can't even count the number of people who complimented the food at our wedding. I had several out of town guests trying to figure out ways to get Hard Smoke to send them food haha Chef James, you're a genius!2. Professional and DedicatedLike I mentioned, the tasting was thorough and detailed. Terry handles the business side and during the tasting, she presented their background, how the food is prepared and how guests will experience the food. You can tell they are truly passionate about what they do. She is organized and quickly responded to our needs. We had an outdoor wedding and we had lots of insects swarming around near guests before the ceremony. Without hesitation, Hard Smoke went the extra mile and took care of the situation without any of us knowing! The only way I found out was way after the wedding when an uncle told me about how impressed he was with our vendor. Book these guys! You won't regret it!TLDR; Hard Smoke BBQ is all around the best. I am definitely hiring them again for future events. More...

I found James and Terry through a Facebook recommendation when I was looking for someone to cater our rehearsal dinner. We scheduled a tasting with them at our apartment's club house and I was immediately impressed by how much thought they put into something so simple. We showed up at the scheduled time and they had laid out place mats, flowers, plates and silverware. They even brought us water to cleanse our palate between different foods. There were only two of us but they brought so much food for us to taste (and let us keep the leftovers) that we had enough for lunch for two days after our tasting!

Their food was absolutely AMAZING! My personal favorite was the baked beans but everything they have ever made for us has been out of this world good. After tasting their food and comparing it to a few others, there was no doubt they were the clear winner.

Every guest at our rehearsal dinner RAVED about how good the food was. Even some of our guests from NJ were asking how they could get it sent back home. I'm fairly certain their food actually out shined the food we served at our wedding.

James is an incredibly talented chef and can cook you an amazing dish no matter if you want BBQ, Greek, Italian or some other cuisine. He catered my company's Thanksgiving feast and everyone raved about the fried turkeys he made (Cajun, Garlic Butter and Jalapeno). The smoked ham was a stand out as well!

His wife, Terry, runs the business side and she's an absolute pleasure to work with as well. If ever there are two people you wish to see succeed, it's them. Don't let the name fool you, Hard Smoke BBQ can handle your catering needs for any event at a reasonable price!

Creating a perfect menu is an interactive process. We speak with our clients and see what it is they want, what is the environment of the event. We are not the caterer that will say here is a list pick what you want, we speak to our client as that is the only way to give them the experience that they deserve,. We are not limited to BBQ, our chef went to Le Cordon Blue and is anxious to create that menu that will make your event delicious!

The smiles on our satisfied clients faces! Nothing is more satisfying than seeing others enjoy their event and knowing that you made the evening perfect.
