While visiting friends in Hamilton, I tried Holy Smoke's drunken chicken at The Farmer's Market. What great BBQ ! I've eaten BBQ all over the country and this is the best I've found. And the rice and beans were really tasty too! Wish you worked closer to where I live.

Holy Smoke catered my mothers 60th BirthDay Party. We chose more of an upscale menu and boy were we surprised. It was like eating at the Four Seasons or Ritz Carlton in our lake house on Hatch Lake. Thank you Holy Smoke for a memorable day !

Doug's Holy Smoke BBQ recently catered our mother's/mother-in-law's 75th birthday party at Madison Lake.  All of the party-goers could not say enough about how wonderful the food and service was.  Most everyone went back for seconds and asked us how we were lucky enough to find this caterer, especially in the middle of a very busy summer season!

The food was outstanding, and the presentation was top notch.  Doug was very accommodating and ready to serve at a moment's notice.  We will definitely be contacting Holy Smoke BBQ to cater our future events!

Thank you for making the party a success!

Holy Smoke BBQ catered my daughter's graduation party and the food was a hit! I ordered their classic pulled pork and drunken chicken, plus Chef Doug was nice enough to make some Mexican specialities - carnitas, guacamole and chicken mole.

The food was sensational at my wedding, thanks to Holy Smoke BBQ! We worked with the owners, Doug and Magadalena, to create our ideal gourmet menu. We started with a variety of appetizers - filet mignon with garlic toast and a touch of Bernaise sauce, spicy BBQ shrimp, and a crudite platter. For dinner we were served a beautiful Balsamic vinaigrette salad with fresh tomatoes and mozzarella, followed by garlic roasted potatoes, succulent prime rib, and salmon with a champagne-dill sauce. To end the amazing meal, we devoured Magdalena's double chocolate mousse cake and apple cobbler squares. I recommend Holy Smoke BBQ for any event - my guests went home full and happy!

Magdalena was our predominant contact for catering my wedding. My groom sampled their food while searching places and loved it. We had their chicken and pulled pork, rolls, potatoes, salad, pasta, and coleslaw. 

We used venue dishes and even though it wasn't theirs Magdalena and her workers still went around collecting the plates and moving them into the kitchen for us (which was so nice because the kitchen was kind of gross and my dad was going to do it if they didn't just to keep guests out). Such a nice gesture.

The food was good though I admit I didn't each much that day for any of the meals. My groom loved it which was great.

At our final payment meetup Magdalena said they generally don't call out for seconds at the self serve buffet but there was extra (whether on their part or because we had 10!! No-shows), so I was comforted knowing there was nobody at the wedding going hungry.

When packing up to go, she offered me all the leftovers free of charge (of course, we already paid for it after all!) and we took them. Little did I know we would be eating them for 2 weeks, freezing them, and giving it away to the business across the street from us. So. Many. Leftovers. Not a complaint.

Overall: No complaints, very straightforward, sample, payment, event, review. 5/5, do recommend.

My family worked with Doug and Magdalena for my sister's wedding and we have nothing but great things to say about their catering! We knew they make great BBQ food but were pleasantly surprised that they offer other gourmet options, too, which is what my sister went with for her event; so definitely check them out even if you're not looking for straight up BBQ! On top of the delicious food, they were professional, efficient and friendly. I would highly recommend them to anyone.

When we started to plan our wedding, we knew we wanted BBQ. We tried a few vendors but Doug's clearly stood out. Not only was the food better than anything we tried, but Doug and Magdalena were extremely personal and worked with us to assure that we had everything on our wish list. We also loved how they brought the smoker to cook on site rather than ship in the food to the venue.

Among their other great food, we recommend the brisket and poppy seed pineapple coleslaw! You can easily tell how much pride they put into making their food. While we were busy taking pictures, they made a plate for us and set it aside to assure that we were able to eat during cocktail hour. Everyone at the wedding raved about the food and went up for at least seconds at the buffet. We HIGHLY recommend Doug's Holy Smoke for any catered events!!!
