BBQ and Picnic Catering

Best Phoenix BBQ Catering

Starts with the Best Ingredients

If you are searching for Arizona catering for your upcoming picnic and want to have the best BBQ in the valley on the menu, then you have come to the right place. Fat Freddy’s Catering has been serving mouthwatering BBQ since the early 1990’s.

Our approach to making the best tasting BBQ is rather simple. Start with the best selection of pork you can find, smoke it in-house using mesquite or other hardwoods, add Fat Freddy’s secret savory BBQ sauce and then just let this fantastic pork fall right off the bone.

Everything is Smoked in House

Fat Freddy’s professional catering is the best choice for BBQ Catering for picnic events. We serve baby back ribs, pulled pork, smoked chicken, smoked turkey and smoked beef all with our secret savory sauces. You will find that our portions are quite generous and include great side dishes like baked beans, traditional coleslaw, mac & cheese, homestyle potato salad and much more.

As one of the top Arizona catering companies in the valley, Fat Freddy’s Catering has been serving authentic, home-cooked food since 1993. We take pride is serving great tasting food, generous portions, timely delivery, and budget-friendly menus.

Fat Freddy’s Jerk Rub Recognized for Representing the Best in Barbecue

Louisville, KY (02/21/13) – The National Barbecue Association (NBBQA) has announced Fat Freddy’s catering as the first place winner in the “Barbecue Dry Rub & Seasoning – Caribbean/Jerk & Mediterranean/Herb” category of the 2013 NBBQA Awards of Excellence.

The annual Awards of Excellence competition recognizes the best barbecue products in a number of industry categories, including sauces, dry rubs, marinades, and accessories. In all, twenty-six categories were judged on their quality, ingenuity, and, of course, taste.

“It’s an honor to receive this award for a recipe that I created over 25 years ago”, said Fred Renstrom, Owner and Executive Chef. “It began as a wet jerk marinade that I used when I ran a Caribbean restaurant in Scottsdale, AZ and now I’ve made it into a dry rub that we use at Fat Freddy’s Catering for our Jamaican Jerk Pork and Chicken.”

The competition was held in advance of the 2013 NBBQA National Conference in Mobile, Alabama, where the official results were announced on February 21. Fat Freddy’s Catering winning product, Fat Freddy’s Jerk Rub was among nearly 600 entries in the contest. Judging is supervised by NBBQA officials but conducted under the independent direction of the Rend Lake Culinary Arts School in Ina, Illinois.

“Congratulations to Fat Freddy’s Catering,” said Jeff Allen, NBBQA executive director. “They stand out as leaders in the industry. We are pleased to recognize them for their contribution to supporting the great American tradition of barbecue.”

Founded in 1991, the National Barbecue Association (NBBQA) and its nearly 2,000 members are dedicated to bringing barbecue enthusiasts together and supporting the barbecue industry. NBBQA’s goals are to promote the recognition and image of the industry, foster new business opportunities for its members, and educate and inform the public about the art and enjoyment of barbecue.
