Stylish Summer BBQ's

May 22, 2015

Memorial Day signals the start of the long awaited grilling season. At Savor by JPC Event Group, we LOVE to extend grilling beyond Summertime by incorporating BBQ accents to any event menu, but especially when produce and local meat sources are at their PEAK. From pig roasts to mini burgers and veggie kebabs, we have put together a few of our favorites that are perfect for a Memorial Day cookout or event any day of the year!

Family style roasted dishes are a great (not to mention impressive) way to feed a large crowd. Adding a whole roasted local pig to your rustic BBQ is sure to get a lot of “ooohs” and “aaahs.” Each one of our locally raised and sourced pigs serves approximately 75 guests and is garnished with Chef Rohn’s “damn tasty” BBQ sauce, garlic & tarragon pig sauce and Carolina mustard sauce- all finger lickin’ good!

Can’t choose between serving hotdogs or burgers? You don’t have to! Consider serving mini versions of both to enable your guests to enjoy one of each. Our gourmet grass fed beef sliders and mini gourmet Chicago style hotdogs with house relish are the perfect bite size options!

 Vegetable kebabs are a colorful picnic accent and fun to eat. Plus, farm fresh organic vegetables like summer squash, organic hot house peppers and heirloom cherry tomatoes burst with flavor after being marinated and grilled. A delicious option for vegetarian and vegan guests also!

When planning for a party, side dishes are just as important as the mains and things can get a little tricky with a larger crowd. These individual Mason jar Cobb salads are a great alternative to the traditional side salad. Not only do the colorful layers of leafy greens and savory ingredients look enticing, but the unique serving option also adds an indie flair that will have your guests feeling like you customized the menu just for them.


Keep your party guests hydrated with refreshing beverages served in Mason jar urns for a boho chic display.  Bypass the expected also with a little fruit twist: strawberry lemonade, cucumber and citrus water, and a delicious peach iced tea.

Peaches are one of our favorite May stone fruits and make a fun and tasty dessert. These individual peach crumble pies are the perfect ending to any summertime meal!

And NO cookout would be complete without a bonfire. One of our favorite childhood memories is sitting around a campfire roasting marshmallows for S’mores.  Incorporate this classic treat into your next event with a gourmet S’mores station. Our house-made graham crackers and assorted gourmet chef crafted marshmallows take one of your childhood favorites to the next level.
