Authentic Whole Hog Catering

Rob is a 2nd generation whole hog cook!

He helped his dad on quite a few occasions at an early age – when people in the Regina area wanted a Pig Roast, Barry was there. Since picking up the BBQ bug, Rob has advanced the cooking techniques to a level unseen in the province before. Rob developed his championship pork injection in competition and uses it in his hogs to add moisture and flavor deep inside the delicate meat of the hog.

A bit of information

Whole Hog Backstory

In early 2014, Rob travelled to Murphysboro, Illinois to take advantage of a very unique whole hog event.  Rob learned, first hand, the cooking process used by some of the best hog cooks in the world.   Pitmasters at this event included Mike Mills, Patrick Martin, Brad Orrison, John Delpha, and Sam Jones.   It was an investment of time and money to ensure that our clients continue to receive first-class catering services from our business in the prairies.

We are often asked how many people a hog feeds – there is no answer.  For a small crowd, we will serve a small hog.  For a large crowd, we will cook multiple large hogs.   We also recommend adding a second meat such as BBQ chicken to give your guests some variety since some may not appreciate seeing a whole animal on the buffet table.  Please inquire about custom menus.

We source our hogs through a Regina butcher, who utilizes smaller Saskatchewan producers.  The quality of the pork is high and we can order to our own specifications.

Pricing for 100-200 people

Frequently Asked Questions

Most frequent questions and answers

What size groups do you serve?

We specialize in large groups.   We have the largest fleet of commercial mobile smokers in Canada.  We are comfortable feeding hundreds, even thousands of people per day.   In 2020, we have learned to focus our efforts on smaller groups.   We are happy to entertain groups as small as 20 people.  

Do you have a COVID-19 cancellation policy?

We do ask for a deposit to hold your date.  This clears our calendar and allows us to focus on your event that day.   In the event that the Saskatchewan government bans private events, or gatherings, we will refund your deposit when the event is less than 30 days away.   This policy is effective for all future events, beginning July 2020.   If you have a deposit on hold with us for an event over 100 people, and the government is still enforcing small group rules 60 days before your event, we will gladly offer options to re-book your event or refund your deposit.  

Do you cook at our site?

We are fortunate enough to have the equipment to allow this.  Our custom-built food truck has a smoker on board, and our 1400-lb commercial smoker is also mobile – so for big crowds we’ll serve the food right off our smoker.    Nobody else in Saskatchewan has this capability.     The entire food operation can be run on a generator, meaning we can set up virtually anywhere.  For events less than 100 people, we may cook in our commercial kitchen and transport the hot food to your event.  We do this to keep prices lower.

How is your food served?

With COVID-19 guidelines, we have a couple options.  We can set up a buffet and serve your guests as they pass.   We can offer individually boxed meals as well.    For large events, once restrictions are released, We will set up a buffet at your event and allow people to serve themselves. In some cases we may help serve, such as carving prime rib for your guests. After everyone has come through the line, we leave the food out for 15 minutes in case anyone wants to come back for seconds.  Your price includes a full 30 minute service window.  After everyone is full, we clean up and head home.  

How much food do you prepare?

We prepare enough food for the number of people you asked us to cook for. There are leftovers, virtually every time – which tend to get eaten as people come back for second helpings. If we end up serving more people that our client expected, there will be an extra charge of 25% for those guests.

Do you offer anything for vegetarians?

Of course! One our partners hasn’t eaten meat or dairy in over 20 years! We have a few tricks up our sleeves, just let us know. We would be happy to accomodate any special requests.

Will you give me your recipe? (Yes, we get asked this!)

Absolutely.  We cook with our own spice rubs and sauce.   Read about them here.  We have refined these recipes over countless bbq competitions and events over the years.   The #1 spice rub in the world is available at a store near you!

What about gluten?

  We take allergies and sensitivities very seriously.  That’s why we have partnered with manufacturers that offer 100% certainty that our spice rubs and bbq sauce are made without gluten, and with no opportunity for contamination.   Just let us know and we’ll customize a menu for your guests.

What do you bring?

Our prices always include plates (large Chinet), premium disposable cutlery, napkins, condiments (salt, pepper, BBQ sauce, and any other condiments that traditionally go with your menu items such as horseradish or real bacon bits). If your event is outside, we can arrange for a 10×10′ tent to cover the food table. We clean up after ourselves and your guests, and make sure the area is at least as clean as it was when we found it. We don’t typically provide tables for serving the buffet, but those can be arranged if you don’t have them available

Can we cancel or change our date? (Pre-COVID guidelines)

The deposits are considered non-refundable. If you need to change the event date, our acceptance is dependent on availability. We may be able to apply the deposit to a future event if notification is given more than 45 days away from the event date. Once we purchase food for the event, you are liable for the full final price.
