Catered Barbeque in Western MA?

magiesmom Apr 24, 2012 06:33 PM

Does anyone know of a company that does this anywhere in Western MA now that Holy Smokes does not?

    According to pigtrip, Holy Smokes reopened as a catering palce in Turner Falls MA. I recall enjoying Holy Smokes so that is an option. Otherwise BT's in Sturbridge is my new favorite and I'm pretty sure that they would cater.

    Oops, just saw that the Holy Smokes business is for sale.

      Bt's is too far, we are west of Northampton, but I wish we could do that.
      No more Holy Smokes catering.
      I'll check out Mad Jack's more but the catering menu is not very compelling.

        I'm surprised Brian from BT's wouldn't cater that far. I've never had Bub's in Sunderland but some like it.

          Bt's would for a bigger job.
          Bub's is not good, Imo.

      A small BBQ joint in Pittsfield that opened 2 years ago is already expanding into 3 times their original space. I believe they do catering and they have somme really good 'Q. They are called Mad Jack's BBQ. They do have a website...

        I would recommend trying Fire Roasted Catering (jeremy stanton, now also the owner of the Meat Market butcher shop in Gr.Barrington) http://www.fireroastedcatering.com/
        or Mad Jacks

            I will check them out. No web presence except Facebook, one of my major pet peeves these days. I am completely facebook averse and therefore I guess they are not interested in my business Aargh!

                you can visit the basic page but to get to menus or anything else you have to sign in.
                I looked through my partner's account, might be interesting . Thanks.
