Services Offered

Bar-B-Cutie SmokeHouse wedding catering team delivers out of this world service and delicious, hearty food!  Our full-service wedding catering experience begins with a multi-sensory tasting event where you will get to enjoy tasting foods, sip on sweet tea, take a look at our smokers and meet the pit boss on duty, and ask as many questions as you'd like. Your wedding dinner will include your menu you pick out (apps, main course, beverage station, dessert station etc..), customized food set-up and serving, and clean-up! 

Meet Our Wedding Dinner Coordinator

Thanks for considering Bar-B-Cutie as your wedding dinner provider!  My team and I would love to work with you to help you create your wedding dinner dream. From getting to know you at the tasting to staying in constant contact with you (your venue coordinator, wedding planner or even family members) through your wedding day, you won't find anyone with more attention to detail, communication skills, and dedication to you and your guests than me and my team! We look forward to meeting you and learning more about you and your wedding dinner vision.  

Here's a little about me..I began my career working as a server at the "famous" Pancake Pantry in downtown Nashville.  It was there that I realized my love for crafting great food and discovered my gift and passion for serving people.  I now own and operate Bar-B-Cutie SmokeHouse on Harding Place, and weddings are my favorite thing to do!  When I'm not playing with my kiddos or traveling, I enjoy crafting new, delicious apps and desserts for weddings and shopping for unique wedding serving pieces.

Let's meet & chat!

Local and Environmentally Conscious

Bar-B-Cutie SmokeHouse uses wood grown in your local community to smoke all of its meats.  We can smoke up to 1400 lbs. of meat with only two or three fireplace-size local wood logs in our smokers. Restaurants that use traditional "pits" to smoke their meats use more than 10 times that much wood.  Little things like using pasta stir sticks (rather than plastic) as coffee stirrers and offering a recyclable plate option also help us preserve our environment.
