Specialists in smoke, fire & awesome food! We love providing amazing wedding catering and barbecue inspired menus for corporate and private events. Based in Angus, we are a purveyor of barbecue inspired catering, specialising in Texan barbecue. Our food inspiration comes from natural methods of cooking, such as traditionally burning wood to cook and using the smoke to flavour meats and other foods, as well as barbecuing over wood and charcoal, and adding homemade spiced rubs and sauces. We've grown this idea into unique menus for all types of events from wedding breakfast dining and rustic feasts, to street food at Scotland’s best festivals and everything in between. Walter, Pit Master, has worked in catering for many years; he is inspired by the relaxed family style of cooking and eating and wild methods of cooking and smoking found in the Southern States. His aim is to bring the best of barbecue inspired cuisine, combine it with the finest local Scottish produce and create beautifully unique catering options. Pit Boss, Ariane is in charge of everything else, especially customer service!
All wood One of the things that drives our passion for barbecue are the roots crafted in old school cooking with fire. Authentic BBQ is smoked low and slow with wood as the only heat source. That means no propane, no gas, no electric, no compromises. We smoke all of our meats outdoors in offset smokers known as “stick burners” using a sustainable Scottish hardwood.
Our food & ethics We pride ourselves on sourcing local, ethical and seasonal foods, if possible. We make sure our food is fresh and everything is home made to our own recipes wherever possible. Our wonderful suppliers include The Butcher The Baker, Dundee, who champion the best of cuts of Scotch meats including our signature pork shoulder, ribs and belly. We strive to use independent and local businesses for our other produce where we can. We are also passionate about building a sustainable and environmentally responsible business. All our disposable packaging is recycled and biodegradable. We try to reduce food waste wherever we can and keep the travelling distance of our supplies as low as possible.
Wedding catering There's nothing we enjoy more than to work with a couple to build a menu that's perfect for their big day. The wedding breakfast is one of the most memorable meals you will have, and we believe the best memories are filled with laughter, fun and amazing food. We have tried to provide an alternative to the formal and sometimes restrictive traditional wedding catering. Our flexible relaxed menu aims to offer lots of choice, lots of barbecue inspired feasting options combined with refined and creative cooking - using the best locally and ethically sourced ingredients. We love to work with you to mix and match courses and dishes so you feel you have a menu that is a perfect fit for your big day. Relaxed buffet service allows you to choose and put together different dishes on a menu that best reflect your own personal tastes and bring your perfect meal to life. As part of this we are happy to work with you to select and where appropriate adapt the dishes with individual twists so that you feel it is truly your own. We can offer sharing platters served to seated guests with lots of choices of different meats, vegetarian options and side dishes you can design your own ideal wedding breakfast. We can also offer full waiting staff service. Wedding couples can then add in the additional courses to suit their day from canapes, starters, desserts and evening street food. We offer a bespoke friendly service so please contact us if you would like any more information.
