Catering for groups of 10 or more, Our new “S. bowl of BBQ menu” works well for small gatherings. Available now, you don’t have to wait until February to try it out. Order for office party catering the week of the game, or a family get together. Don’t have 10 people, no worry, you’ll just have to enjoy Smokin Steve’s for 2 days, instead of one. Lucky you!

A-Bombs, Bacon wrapped Jalapenos, stuffed with meat and cheese

Catering with several new items on the menu, you are sure to impress your most critical of guests (in-laws!?). BBQ Sliders on Hawaiian Rolls are Extra Points for sure.

The Atomic Bombs are an item you will not find anywhere else. Our Chefs take a whole Jalapeno, hollow it, stuff it with a mixture of barbecued meat, cheese, onion & raspberry chipotle bbq sauce. Next, they wrap it with bacon. Why? Are you really asking why?! Because we are American and It’s bacon. That’s all the reason anyone needs.

“Creating great events with amazing food and dedicated people is what we love to do!” Steve Bayles owner

From       Did you know….. that the first indigenous tribes that Christopher Columbus encountered on the island he named Hispaniola; had developed a unique method for cooking meat. They cooked it over an indirect flame, created by using green wood to keep the food (and wood) from burning. Reports indicate that the Spanish referred to this new style of cooking as barbacoa: the original barbecue. (That’s the slow cooked on low temperature mentioned above, and used in our Kitchen today).  Learn more at
