Big Joe's Backyard BBQ offers catering for weddings and private events across the Chicagoland area. We bring our smokers and grills to your venue--whether that be your backyard, a private venue, or any locale of your choice! You pick the place and we'll be there! We do book up quickly for wedding events and suggest you book early. We require a signed contract and a $300 deposit to hold your date. We are happy to do a tasting at your home (or other location of your choice) prior to signing the contract and/or closer to the wedding date to finalize the menu. Our Wedding Package booklet gives details on our pricing and menus. However, we are happy to work with you to customize a menu of your choice. We also offer appetizers and late night eats! Reach out to us today via email at
