Tailgate Catering: Why BBQ Should Be in Your Playbook

Football season in south Louisiana means fun, friends, family, and of course, food.  Whether you’re heading out to your alma mater or to watch your kids play on Friday nights, setting up shop on campus on Saturday mornings, or checking out the pros on Sundays, tailgating is a common activity every autumn.  And a tailgate isn’t complete without a spread that will keep you fed and fueled through kickoff and beyond.  Now it’s hard to go wrong with the tried and true staples.  Burgers, hot dogs, jambalaya and more can be found every few feet, under any canopy; but there is something else you should consider as you draw up your tailgate plans this season, barbecue.    

Of course seeing grills and smokers sending plumes aromatic smoke up in the air is not a new trend, but offering your guests competition style barbecue from the Carolinas, Missouri, Texas and Tennessee along with all of the trimmings can bring your tailgate party to the next level.  And now it is easier than ever to provide.

Catering is a simple way to provide great food for a lot of people.  This practice is nothing new under the oak trees or in stadium parking lots, but this football season there will be a new option when it comes to filling the table.  BRQ Seafood and Barbecue is always the right call, and here’s why.

Farm to Tailgate

The idea of farm to table ensures that all of the food used to prepare your meal is carefully selected, traced, and ends up on your plate as fresh as possible.  BRQ brings this same initiative to your tailgate party.  BRQ works closely with all of its purveyors to ensure that each piece of meat, vegetable, fruit, and dish is prepared and served in the best way possible. 

BBQ Catering Options

BRQ’s catering menu offers several options.  Whether you want to customize your order or select a package that will meet your needs, you can do either.  With everything from appetizers, like smoked queso, boudin balls, and BRQ’s homemade chips to traditional handmade sides like mac and cheese, potato salad, and poblano cheddar cornbread you can have something for everyone.  Now don’t forget the meat.  Pulled chicken and pork can be ordered in one pound increments and there are also St. Louis ribs, baby back ribs, and whole BBQ chicken options as well.  Last, but certainly not least, there’s desert.  Freshly baked carrot cake, chocolate cake, and bread putting can be the perfect ending to a great meal.

For larger gatherings you can choose between “The Smokehouse”, “The Pit Boss”, and “The Big Q”.  These packages allow you to choose a combination of sides, meats, and sauces in different quantities.  This allows you to put the catering on cruise control.

Additional Catering Services

Setting up a tailgate can be quite a bit of work.  Staking out your spot, setting up the canopy and generator, filling ice chests, the list goes on and on.  This is one reason why BRQ offers additional services that can take some of the burden off of you.  With services like delivery, and the ability to order chafing dishes, tables, chairs, linens etc. the experts at BRQ are there to handle the details so you can enjoy the game.

So whether you are gearing up for high school football, the Tigers or Jags, or even the Saints, don’t forget to include a new flavor with your tailgate this season.
