Seeking BBQ/ Pig Roast Catering for New Hampshire

mollybclark Oct 30, 2011 10:05 AM

Hi All,

This is my first post to Chowhound, so I'm not really sure how much response I will get- but fingers crossed that someone out there has a gem of a BBQ/pig roast catering service to share with me!

I am getting married next June in Tilton, NH and would love to find a local business that specializes in pig roasts but can also offer fresh salads and sides- ideally with local or organic ingredients. Any advice is much appreciated!

    John Medlin in Dover, NH. He owns Popper's Sausage Kitchen but does pig roasts too. I almost used him for my wedding, but went with a lobster bake instead

      Thanks, just emailed him. The sausages sound delish!

      We haven't used them for catering but the Smoke Shack in Boscawen will cater. You can stop by their restaurant near exit 17/I93 to see how things taste. I think their sides like mac 'n cheese are good. They make their own coleslaw but I doubt if they use organic food.

        Try reaching out to John Delpha, owner of The Belted Cow in Vermont. John is a Championship BBQ competitor. The phone number at the restaurant is 802-316-3883.

          This is a question and a comment...anyone know if the Yankee Smokehouse (Ossipee?) caters. I *think* they do....not 100% positive. Good grub!

            The Yankee Smokehouse does indeed cater, and it's pretty good. They may not do whole hogs, however.

            Popper's Artisanal Meats in Dover does do whole hogs, sausages, etc. Excellent.

            There's another fellow in Dover, Vinny the BBQ TRUCK GUY who also caters BBQ and I think whole hogs. He's on Twitter and has a truck on Third Street in Dover Tues-Sat 10-2:30. Here's the link:
