"Great customer event last night in the heart of Sampson County with the absolute BEST catered meal I've ever had the pleasure of feasting upon thanks to Southern Smoke BBQ of NC.  Fresh local ingredients prepared well and served with Southern Grace!" - Nelson Powell, Cape Fear Farm Credit, NC


"I'm a BBQ nut.  I grew up in eastern North Carolina (I live in Alabama now) and, of course, I'm partial to vinegar-based sauces for my pulled pork.  I travel quite a bit, all over the country, and when it's getting close to lunchtime, I start looking for a BBQ restaurant to sample the local Que.  If I don't see smoke and pick-up trucks, I keep driving and looking for another one.  There's hardly a state in this country that I haven't eaten BBQ.

With all that said, I can easily tell you this...The pulled pork BBQ you sent me may be the best I've ever tasted.  The smoke flavor was right on target, not too heavy, not too light.  It was spiced so perfectly and so good, I ate half of it without any additional sauce.  Then I ate the other half with the sauce you sent, and it immediately took me back to my childhood when it was hog killing weather with my Dad and Granddad and a pig on the pit.  If the pulled pork from Southern Smoke BBQ of NC isn't perfect, it's as close as a man can get!" - Rev. Bubba D. Liverance, Musician, AL


"Thank you for catering our "Report to the People" meeting tonight with the commissioner.  We had several of our guests mention that it was the best barbeque that they have had...Not to mention that yummy mac-n-cheese!" - Charmae Kendall, NC


"Were you raised on a farm where your Dad cured ham in a smokehouse?  Do you remember the taste of good, country food?  Well.......Southern Smoke BBQ is better than that!  Yea, truly! (Even my brother thinks so, and he still likes to cook a pig!) They catered my daughter's reception on Good Friday. The flavor of every morsel of everything we ate was so good. And to add to the great menu, the staff was so courteous, friendly, and adaptable. Thank you Southern Smoke! You are doing it right!" The Childress Family, NC


"I really enjoy your Sweet Grace sauce. To me, it is a perfect BBQ sauce. I purchase several bottles along with my father-in-law on a regular basis. It works great on all grill items, but I wanted to pass along a couple of things I use it for that are uncommon. I will get fried chicken from a local place and make it into BBQ chicken...it tastes amazing. I also will buy precooked frozen wings (imagine now - no high quality wings) and warm them in oven and cover in Sweet Grace and they taste amazing. Basically, I am saying Sweet Grace sauce is an amazing sauce that makes all types of food taste excellent." - Aaron Rose, NC


"I recently ordered BBQ, ribs, and sauces from Southern Smoke. Everything was beautifully packed, shipped, and arrived on time. The quality of their products is over the top. Everything tasted wonderful. Truly, without a doubt, the ribs were the best I have ever eaten...so very tender and tasty! The BBQ and sauces were also excellent! I loved the vinegar based sauce on the BBQ and the Sweet Grace on the ribs. What more can I say? If you haven't tried Southern Smoke, now is the time! I will definitely be ordering again and again!" - Dotsey Landon, FL


"Best BBQ I have ever eaten! was the most common comment from people at the birthday party you catered for me!" - Tommy Underwood, NC


"Thanks Matt, to you and your crew, for making our event special!  I got many compliments on how great the food was.  Sorry everyone if this sounds like a commercial for Southern Smoke BBQ, but their food is just absolutely delicious.  I have been fortunate to sample BBQ and sides all across the United States.  Southern Smoke BBQ could compete with anyone.  Their food and presentation are both exceptional.  They are well rounded and can provide more than just BBQ and traditional sides. Matt did non-BBQ appetizers for us, and they were as good as his BBQ.  I would highly recommend [Southern Smoke BBQ] if you want a top quality catering job, along with someone very professional and down to earth to work with.  If you hire Southern Smoke to cater your event, you will not be disappointed.  You will be raving about the food like I am!" - Aaron Rose, NC
