At first glance, gourmet BBQ seems like an oxymoron. Isn’t it a down-home tradition? Shouldn’t you end up covered in sauce and with potato salad in your hair? Doesn’t every BBQ you’ve ever attended involve burning the snags and watching Aunt Ethel accidentally spill booze in the coleslaw?

Well, good news: You can do all these things and more at your next BBQ event, but you can avoid the work by hiring a gourmet BBQ catering company! In all seriousness, though, gourmet BBQ catering preserves all the cosy traditions you’ve come to associate with the grill, with a glammed up menu few would be able to resist. So how do you match the plan to the food?


First you’ve got to decide where you’re going to hold your event. If you’re not sure, check out a comprehensive venue site and pick based on whether you’re throwing a birthday party, hosting a serious corporate event or tossing up your skirts and planning a wedding. Of course most people choose to host at home and Diamond Blue Catering are happy to accommodate the request. Once you know where you’re having it, you can pick your food.


The menu’s really the fun part anyway, right? And when you work with an experienced gourmet BBQ catering company, you’ll find that classic grilling fare gets a fun, elegant twist in the form of seafood and shrimp skewers, fish fillets, kangaroo fillets and porterhouse steaks, along with classics such as chicken, lamb, pork and burgers. With so many options, you’re bound to find the upscale BBQ that fits your event perfectly … and you can still get sauce on your fingers.

Beverages and Extras

Now for the potato salad in your hair. Because of course you still have to have the old standbys; gourmet versions just come with a fun twist, like potato salad with bacon, spring onions and capsicum. Or Caesar salad with bacon, croutons and rich, creamy Caesar dressing. And BBQ isn’t BBQ without drinks from coolers, right? So opt for water, juice and soft drinks from the can, which most companies can provide for a small extra charge.


Now it’s time to pin down the little things. Do you have your own barbecue, for instance? If not, a good BBQ catering company will be able to supply one for a small fee. Do you have a low headcount at your intimate gathering? Not a problem, you can still have it catered. Are you looking for wait staff? Talk to your caterers about service to really up the gourmet feel.
