We have competed in over 50 national BBQ contest and and have won over 100 top ten awards in the past 10 years.
Our BBQ is cooked with real wood -- not gas or electric. We don’t steam our meats. Slow and low is the mantra that we cook by, added a touch of hickory, oak, or apple smoke for flavor. Everything is cooked onsite! All our meat is well seasoned and then, if needed, the appropriate sauce is added. We go to enormous lengths to make the very best barbecue around. All catered events are cooked fresh onsite. No barbecue is prepared days ahead of time and reheated. We hand-pick each ingredient. All meats are slow cooked to perfection. Nothing escapes our attention! Please allow 5 to 10 hours of setup time before serving, if needed.

Sweet Teresa's Treats
Jon and Teresa at The BBQ Connection are such kind people... not to mention, they make amazing BBQ! From our first meeting, they were extremely helpful in envisioning my reception meal and thinking through details with me. Since I was trying to cut costs in order to have a larger guest list, they made suggestions for ways to save money and were extremely flexible in working with me to find other vendors or ways to get my linens, tableware, and other rentals. Guests at our wedding were raving … about the BBQ afterwards - everyone left very full and happy, and there was plenty of food left over for friends and family. This is a family business and I felt like they treated me like family, so it was wonderful to have them as part of my wedding day. Read More
BBQ Connection is best in class! Teresa and John are amazing -- I can assure you that their food is beyond amazing but more importantly, they have more heart and care more about their customers being happy than I have ever encountered. Their staff (which is also a good indicator of how well John and Teresa treat others) is what you would expect from a top catering company -- But the big difference is the fact that BBQ connection prepares food that is way better than any catering company … could ever produce! My husband is from Texas (as he would say "home of real BBQ") and he was sold immediately after our tasting (and we did tastings at 5 places!) - My parents were also involved since we live in NYC and John and Teresa personally invited them to a tasting and a class. Our expectations for quality and service are very high (especially since we moved to NYC) so rest assured John & Teresa & BBQ connection are the BEST! And if you want to make your guests happy - BBQ connection will please them beyond a doubt! Our friends are still talking about our wedding and how amazing the food was -- it is of course no surprise to us! Read More
