We had Southern Smoke BBQ for our wedding. I have never been happier that I chose Brian and his staff. The food is INCREDIBLE… ever since we tried it we can’t stop thinking about the food and wanting more. Not only that but Brian is so relaxed to work with and so incredibly understanding and always responded to us with any questions we had. Wish I could hire them for all my events and whenever I’m having events in Vermont I will 100% be hiring them again. 2022
Brian and his team recently catered our wedding and did a great job. The food was delicious, the price was right, and he was great to work with. We got a lot of feedback about how delicious the food was. When we ran out of pulled pork (buffets are always gamble) they were able to cook up some ribs for the last table to make sure everyone was happy. Throughout the process Brian was available to meet us when we were in town (which was only a few times because we live across the country) and he was so flexible when we had to change up the final number only a week before when some guests back down. The food truck at the wedding was also a great touch! I would highly recommend Brian and his team!
"OUR FOOD WAS ABSOLUTELY AMAZING!!!! Every guest we talked with raved about how delicious the food was and after my first bite, I refused to leave my seat until my entire plate was finished. Brian was extremely easy to work with and even met us in the middle of a snow storm with 2+ feet of snow on the roads for our taste testing because our weekends were so booked that we couldn't move it. I cannot recommend Brian and his team enough! " - 9/23/2017
"Brian did a fantastic job at our wedding. He was a pleasure to work with from start to finish. He coordinated a tasting with my parents (who live in the area) before we hired him, and then he was extremely helpful and responsive throughout the planning process. His menu selections are diverse, and everything he made was delicious. We got so many compliments on the food from our guests. He provided great vegetarian options as well. Working with Brian was completely stress-free, and we are so happy we went with him for our wedding. He even coordinated late-night snacks for after the reception - which was perfect after an evening of dancing. " - 8/12/2017
"Southern Smoke catered our wedding out in Lowell, VT on 9/24. Brian and his assistant did an excellent job. The pulled pork and the pickles were absolutely amazing, and we had so many people tell us it was some of the best wedding food they've had. Brian is super flexible and works with you to make your special day even better! We're so glad that we picked Southern Smoke!"

"Brian and his gang catered our wedding this past weekend and I could not rave enough about how incredible the food was and how efficient and pleasant the service was. They were there with smiles on, working away, (beyond their call of duty) to make sure that our wedding and guests were full, happy and enjoying themselves. I cannot tell you how many people came to us throughout the evening and since the wedding to tell us how unique and delicious Southern Smoke's food was. I HIGHLY recommend them for any catered event! Thank you Brian, and gang, for leaving this bride and groom overjoyed!"

"We had Southern Smoke cater our wedding, and the food was amazing! Brian met with us to discuss the menu and pricing, and accommodated all our requests. He and his staff went above and beyond, filling the water glasses at the tables and setting out our desserts. A few of our guests were from Virginia and North Carolina and were amazed at how authentic the barbecue was. We'd recommend Southern Smoke to anyone considering a catered BBQ event!"

"The food at our wedding was raved about by every guest we talked to and once we finally got a chance to try it, we understood why. Brian did a great job and was very flexible and easy to work with. The food was amazing! The pulled pork with pickles and roasted veggies was my personal favorite. It was great to have laid back comfort food after such a busy day."

Everyone enjoyed the food. Brian was great to work with and responsive by email (big plus for us!). Would definitely recommend!"

"Brian at Southern Smoke catered the rehearsal dinner for our wedding. He was very easy to work with, and the food he provided was delicious and affordable. Our guests were very pleased by the variety of food offered, and he even made the vegans happy with eggplant and mushroom barbecue options. He was very accommodating, and we recommend him highly!"
