Mouthwatering Barbecue Catering From Big Al's Soul & Catering

Is there anything on Earth more delicious than authentic southern-style barbecue? We don’t mean some cheap protein slapped on a grill with a measly portion of sauce, but real quality meats seasoned, rubbed, and brined to perfection, then slow-smoked for hours until the meat falls off the bone. We’re talking tender, juicy pork, chicken, and ribs, enough to feed a legion of your friends and family for weddings, funerals, parties, or work functions.

But finding good barbecue catering is like trying to find a needle in a haystack. When you want big flavor to help bring your guests together, call Big Al's Soul & Catering. We offer authentic party platters stacked full of rich BBQ tastes to help you paint the town and the front porch!

Local BBQ Flavor for Big City Events


What makes Big Al's Soul & Catering unique? Well, every meal is cooked to perfection by our head cook and founder Al “Chef Q” Quattlebaum. Using recipes passed down by his beloved mother, you get all the high-quality southern-style barbecue you crave at prices that fit your event budget. There’s no reason to shell out for ‘upscale’ BBQ staples cooked by Lower East Side folks with no connection to the rich traditions surrounding barbecue when you can get that authentic taste you know and love for less.

There’s just no better choice for soul food catering than Big Al's Soul & Catering. There’s no reason to leave NYC to get a taste of home. Call us instead, and we’ll rig up the smoker!
