Everyone LOVED the food and the service that you provided for The Imaging Center's summer picnic. There was more than enough food and selection to satisfy everyone and the set-up, service, and clean-up were great! We will definitely keep you a the top of our list for next year's picnic.

Make Your Wedding Menu Memorable

It would be an honor to cater you wedding cocktail hour, reception, rehearsal dinner and groom’s dinner.

Why Brides and Grooms Choose Albert Pit Barbecue

We’ve paid attention to what couples want and have worked to become the best choice for weddings.

First, we treat weddings differently than we do other events. The barbecue industry seems to think that catering a wedding and catering a company picnic is the same thing.  They bring the same decorations, the same food in foil pans, the same cheap-o napkins.  We don’t think that is good enough. We offer upscale barbecue so that your meal can be as casual or as formal as you like.

We’ll cater a meal that fits your personal wedding style.  Nice, thick paper napkins or colorful cloth linens?  Traditional BBQ sides like potato salad or something more formal like roasted rosemary potatoes? Fresh hamburger buns or dinner rolls?  Clear, plastic plates or real china and silverware?  Buffet service of family style?  Coleslaw on the buffet or plated salads on the table?  Your choices make your wedding more casual, formal, simple or elaborate.

Second, because we are a committed barbecue caterer (not a restaurant with a catering sideline) we are fully committed to you and your wedding. Your wedding IS our business, not just one more thing to do on a busy night at a restaurant.  On the days before your wedding our priority is preparing for your wedding–not our lunch crowd.  When it comes to staffing your event, we won’t be pulling people off the floor that normally do another job, instead our staff is specially trained to cater to brides and grooms and their guests.    They have catered more weddings than the average person will attend in their entire lives!

Third, we set up a buffet that is impeccably clean and neat. We use a simple, elegant floor length white table linen.  We cover it with a specially fitted clear cover (almost invisible) so that any errant splatters can be wiped away.  Your guests will see a printed menu card at the head of the buffet and nicely labeled cards at each menu item.

Fourth, we serve our barbecue sauce on the side. Your guests can add as little or as much sauce as you like. (Especially helpful for brides in white!)  See our blog post for more details about why we always serve sauce on the side.

Fifth, we guarantee that we won’t run out of food. We too have heard the stories and seen the posts about caterers ruining a wedding reception by running out of food.  But since we have never run out of food at a catered event, we decided to remove the risk and worry for our couples by guaranteeing that we won’t run out of food or you don’t pay.  You’ll see our Plenty-of-Food-Guarantee on your proposal for any No Work Catering Service Event.  But since we are the only caterer offering it you won’t get that kind of guarantee anywhere else.

Sixth, you won’t spend your wedding night hungry…or at the McD’s Drive Thru. Since some brides and grooms don’t actually eat at their wedding reception, we leave behind an After Party Rack of Ribs care package with any full-service catered event for you to grab on your way out of your reception.  When you get to your hotel and the hunger pangs strike, heat your meal up in the hotel’s breakfast microwave and have a little late-night picnic in your room.  Or throw the ribs in your freezer for an easy meal after the honeymoon.  Delicious and fun!

Seventh, did we mention that our food is great? Have you scheduled your free tasting yet?  Phone or email to schedule a tasting.

Request a Proposal

A great way to start a conversation about wedding catering is to send us an email and give us some details about your wedding.  We’ll put together some menu ideas to fit your wedding style and budget.

Free Barbecue Tasting for Brides and Grooms

Brides and Grooms (and up to two guests) are invited to attend a free tasting exclusively for couples considering barbecue for their rehearsal dinner or wedding reception.  To schedule a tasting time call Korey at 970-213-7427 or send us an email. You can also come in on our First Friday Carry-Out night from 4-7 and get some samples–but we’d rather meet with you one on one so scheduling a tasting time is best.  You’ll also see us with some samples at wedding shows at Ellis Ranch in Loveland and at Bridal Festivals shows.  Get a map to our Catering Kitchen.

Wedding Cocktail Hour Food

We set up a lovely buffet or passed appetizers during your cocktail hour. Get the Albert Pit Barbecue Appetizer Menu.

We Can Cater BOTH Your Reception and Your Rehearsal Dinner

Could we bring an Italian Buffet, and Mexican Feast or some Smoked Meat Sandwich trays to your rehearsal dinner? Book both your rehearsal dinner and wedding reception with Albert Pit Barbecue and you’ll have delicious meals and an easy solution.  See our Rehearsal Dinner menus.

How to Book Your Wedding Catering

If you already know how good our barbecue is and are ready to book your wedding reception and/or rehearsal dinner, simply contact us to let us know what menu you had in mind and we will get a proposal to you right away.
