Wanted: BBQ to go
I am looking for good BBQ brisket and chicken for a birthday party in the East Bay. Some places will only do whole meals but I will be making the side dishes to save some money. I expect about 60 people. Suggestions?
Taste of Joy on Lakeshore is a new favorite of mine. Great brisket, pretty good chicken. Their BBQ dinners normally come with sides, but the owner/chef is a nice guy and seems eager to please, so if you give them a call, I'm sure you'd be able to work something out. They're a small operation, though, so I'm sure they'd need a lot of advanced notice for such a big order.

Give Uncle Willie's brisket a try. I don't know about their chicken, I never order that at BBQ places.
