How to host a Barbecue Tasting Party

How to host a Barbecue Tasting Party

3 minute read

Move over wine and cheese… it’s time to make barbecue tastings the next big thing! Try something new for your next dinner party and consider offering a variety of juicy, smokehouse barbecue meats. A tasting party is a great way to try a sampling of all the best meats. Invite friends and family and let everyone rate each meat and vote on their favorites!


You have come to the right place! Sonny Bryan’s Smokehouse is the number one barbecue delivery and barbecue catering company in the Dallas-Fort Worth area. Remember, there are no rules when it comes to hosting a barbecue tasting party, but here are three tips to ensure a night everyone will remember:


Focus on the meat 

Our Taste of Texas is the ideal catering package for a barbecue tasting party. We offer four slow-smoked meats, cooked and seasoned to perfection. Choose from sliced or chopped brisket sausage (or jalapeno sausage for an added kick), smoked turkey, hickory smoked ham, smoked pork ribs, or Texas style pulled pork or chicken. You can’t go wrong, no matter what you choose! 


BYOS (Bring Your Own Sauce!) 

In our opinion, our Sonny Bryan’s Famous BBQ Sauce is the best, but a barbecue tasting party is a great opportunity to try a variety of signature sauces. Encourage guests to each bring their must-have sauce and pair different sauces and meats to enhance the flavor. The sweeter (or spicier), the better! 


Pair drinks and sides 

We’ll bring the meat—you take care of the drinks! Good barbecue and good beer go hand in hand. Mix and match your favorite beers (or drinks) with our savory meats and crowd-pleasing barbecue sides (like our mouth-watering potato salad, cole slaw, and BBQ beans) to create a delicious barbecue tasting party all your guests are sure to enjoy! 


Planning ahead not your thing? No problem! We offer last-minute barbecue delivery and barbecue catering options. We are happy to provide a same-day quote if you’re feeling impromptu. Call us at 214-353-0027 or fill out our online contact form to get in touch with our catering team.
