Slice of Life: Summertime BBQ

Classic American BBQ is always a popular choice for any Summertime event. People love it! As Dotty Griffith states in her book, Celebrating Barbeque, “If Congress decided to declare a national dish, barbecue should win by acclamation.” We totally agree!

While barbeque is usually suited for a casual affair, by no means it is limited to a family picnic. This simple southern food is a popular way to celebrate graduations, birthdays, weddings and other special events with you closest friends, family and neighbors. In fact, barbeque is the fastest growing catered wedding reception food in the United States.

Along with our popular Carolina pulled pork buffet station, which is usually paired with our creamy mac and cheese and mini corn muffins, we wanted to share with you some of our most popular summer party menu items.


Slider Station

The perfect option for someone looking to offer variety to their guests. This station includes mini cheeseburgers, pulled pork and fried chicken sliders, served with housemate sea salt chips.

Fresh Fruit

Our Watermelon Cubes with fresh mozzarella and housemade basil oil offer a refreshing, bite-size option. And our Hamby Signature Farm Stand provides an assortment of strawberries, cantaloupe, peaches, dried apricots and a variety of cheeses. For a sweet treat, try our Apple Tarte Tartin or  Seasonal Fruit Cobbler with Vanilla Bean Ice Cream.


If you want to give your guests something that they will remember the day after your event, we have some new signature Summer menu items.  Try our new S’mores Bites, Burrata with Heriloom Tomato Mélange or Grilled Asparagus Tips wrapped in Crisp Prosciutto for an unexpected twist to your menu.


Ultimately, Hamby loves the opportunity to provide memorable food to showcase the active Summer event schedule in Charleston.  Contact us today and we’ll create a seasonal menu for your next event or gathering.
