When We Cater For YOU We Prepare Ranucci’s Big Butt BBQ
the Same Way We Do for Competitions...
JUDGE FOR YOURSELF!

ranuccis

That’s right, Ranucci’s Catering brings to you Award Winning Big Butt BBQ prepared exactly the same as we do for competitions. Our succulent hickory smoked pork is slow cooked for 12-14 hours and hand-pulled on-site. Ribs so tender and tasty, with just a hint of sweetness from our Maple’Licious BBQ Sauce. And our chicken, whether smoked or Italian Roasted, is always a crowd pleaser.

Our Full Service Barbecue Catering includes buffet set up, table cloths, and clean up of the service area. Our professional staff will deliver and set up the buffet, carve the meat and serve it to your guests. You just sit back and enjoy! We cater private parties, corporate functions, weddings, family reunions, grand openings, sporting events, church and school functions.

WE HAVE SOLD OUR RESTAURANT LOCATION - but this review was too good not to keep up!

A local food critique gave Ranucci's BBQ & Grill an AWESOME review!

"I know I’ve stated many times that I will never, ever do a barbecue throwdown, as telling people around here which ‘cue is “better than the rest” would be akin to telling them which church to go to, but when I find a place doing it right, I have to tell you about it. Ranucci’s is one of those places."
J. Scott Wilson writes for the Food section in The Gazette
