Here’s a collection of Georgia Smoke BBQ Catering Reviews:
“I recently had the good fortune to hire Georgia Smoke to cater an annual skeet shoot and BBQ event that I host for friends, clients, and referral sources. I am so glad that I did. The food was excellent, the presentation was professional, and the service was friendly. My guests raved about the BBQ, which was just the right mix of down home goodness and a little bit of flair. There was more than enough food to go around, but none of it went to waste when my guests and I loaded to-go boxes to the brim. I will definitely call on Georgia Smoke again the next time I want to impress!” — Bill P.
“The veggies, the beans, the avocados, the meats, the salsas, the hot sauces… WOW! They were fantastic! If we ever (always) want/need a great Tex-Mex meal I know who I’m having cater it! The chicken was moist, the other kind of meats were excellent! We also heard the same from everyone who ate there. Way to go!” — Katherine R.
“I love Georgia Smoke! John R. Lenz catered my 50th birthday party. John was so easy and fun to work with. Before the party, we met and talked about what my price point was and what my expectations were. He provided a lot of great advice from his experiences to enable me to make informed decisions. He was clear about set up times, space needed to serve the food, the ways in which the food would be served, clean up, and how leftovers would be stored. Everyone at my party LOVED the meat. My guests kept coming up to me during the party, complimenting the food. John is also very personable and fun to have at your event. The guests liked him and he made everyone feel comfortable. Like I said earlier, I love Georgia Smoke!” — Liz K.
“Thanks again for the wonderful BBQ! It is always a handful when we have our annual work party, and your BBQ and catering services made it easy for us. The food was awesome and so much better and fresher than what we have received from the standard “chain bbq” catered parties in the past years. You had many great compliments from our crowd. Thanks again.” — Keith P.
“Georgia Smoke catered a recent party for us and we couldn’t have been happier! Working with John was wonderful. He was quick to respond to communication and placed great attention to all the details to ensure our party was a success. He went above and beyond just catering by also referring someone to create a beautiful outdoor atmosphere with lighting, as well as offering suggestions with additional seating. The food was incredible! Everyone raved about it, and we especially loved the salmon and loaded baked potato salad. We are so thankful we chose Georgia Smoke and look forward to working with them in the future.” — Kristy S.
“We recently hired Georgia Smoke to carter our son’s high school graduation party. We had 5 families represented and over 85 people in attendance and the food and service was nothing short of perfect!
The BBQ and sides were totally delicious, and the service was outstanding (i.e. everything was on time, cold food was cold, hot food was hot, etc.) We had brisket, chicken and salmon (don’t forget the salmon; it was amazing and the first thing to go!)
Working with John and Sam is an absolute pleasure because they love their craft as clearly evident by their performance in the pit and kitchen! If you’re considering Georgia Smoke to cater your next event, look no further! You will not find better a value anywhere, everything was fantastic!” — Michael D.
“For the third year in a row, I hired Georgia Smoke to cater the skeet shoot and BBQ event that I host for clients, friends, and referral sources. I have come to expect good food and great service from Georgia Smoke BBQ. Even with these high expectations, I came away impressed. The food was great, the service professional, and the overall experience was painless. It is truly comforting to hand off an important piece of my biggest marketing initiative of the year and know that it will be handled well. This is the peace of mind that Georgia Smoke delivers. Thank you John, for another great year! ” — Bill P.
“For my 50th birthday party I wanted to have an old fashioned pig roast and invite a lot of people. So my husband and I contacted Georgia Smoke BBQ and they delivered just what I had in mind. They smoked a pig which was laid out for people to pick. It made for a great conversation starter and everyone raved about the pork and all the sides. We had smoked brisket and salmon too and everyone loved these as well as all the sides. Everything was on time and was served appropriately, just right for an outdoor summer party. It was fun! John really wanted to deliver the vision I had for my party and it was perfect. I am already planning a future event with Georgia Smoke.” — Melanie S.
“It was exceptionally good. Rave reviews all around. We had the remaining leftover smoked salmon with crackers last night during cocktail hour. I think that’s my new favorite food.” — Scott C.
“Georgia Smoke has provided catering services for years at Briarcliff Woods Beach Club parties and we will continue to use them in the future. From BBQ, to an Oyster Roast and to a Crawfish Boil they have given our 500-600 members (and guests) who come to our parties an excellent experience. At our last party, a Taco Bar, our members posted on Facebook and called it “a holiday party for the records”. I concur. We look forward to our next event with Georgia Smoke.” — Steve S., Social Chair, BWBC
“You rocked that service. Holy cow was that brisket good. All of it was good.” — Steven F.
“Your team was amazing; there’s nothing I would have done differently. We received so many compliments on the food that day—the menu of beef brisket, pulled pork, smoked salmon, roasted chicken, and vegan black bean patties with salsa verde was great. People were well-fed, and everyone even got a mini cheese cake if they wanted it! Such a pleasure working with you throughout the process.” — Jodi M., G4G Foundation

“The Lakeside High School PTSA recently partnered with Georgia Smoke BBQ to provide the nearly 200 faculty and staff at Lakeside High School with a pig roast. Georgia Smoke smoked some pork butts and brisket as well as a whole pig. The party was a huge hit and our teachers and staff definitely felt appreciated. The whole pig was especially fun and they ate the whole thing. One of the staff members even took the head! Thank you so much for a fabulous event!” — Melanie S.
“John worked tirelessly to make my Mother’s 60th Birthday Bash an unforgettable gathering. The food (pig roast) was perfection, delicious to the very last bite. We thank John and his family for sharing his passion with us and look forward to the next event Georgia Smoke can cater.” – Harriet M-A.
“John Lenz of Georgia Smoke provided a fantastic meal for my family reunion. We had 100 members of our family come in town from all over for a weekend of events, kicked off by a huge meal. Georgia Smoke cooked pulled pork, beef brisket, chicken, and smoked salmon as main foods. The sides were great too. Everything tasted great, was hot and fresh and we ate every bite. I highly recommend Georgia Smoke. I will be hiring them again!” — Phyllis L.
“Georgia Smoke delivers again! Repeat customer! We hosted an open house at our Market with over 200 in attendance. Georgia Smoke was punctual and provided everything needed to offer a fabulous experience for all. Customers commented this was THE BEST barbecue they’ve ever tasted. And, the coleslaw was over the top! Thank you, Georgia Smoke. We look forward to our next event!” — Michelle O
“I Would like to thank John Lenz for a fantastic experience. Our friends from Georgia were planning a Pig roast on their farm in Hartwell as a continuation of their son’s wedding celebration. Planning began in May and John was so responsive to our planning. I tell you everything was excellent and John was a pleasure to work with. The food was delicious. Brisket was amazing. Pig was delicious and so moist. The sides were right on point. Cole slaw, loaded potato salad, the corn and bean salad was so fresh and tasty. We had about 35 to 40 guests and more than enough food for all. Anyone looking for an authentic barbecue and pig picking we all highly recommend Georgia Smoke. He arrived early and did everything from set up to clean up. John thanks for giving us all a great memory we will never forget.” — Don F
