If I could I would give Jason and everyone at Cowboy BBQ a MILLION STARS

If I could I would give Jason and everyone at Cowboy BBQ a MILLION STARS. Jason and his team catered our wedding and I have never heard so many compliments about the food at a wedding in my entire life. People were blown away by the quality and flavor of Jason’s BBQ. His brisket was the best we have ever had, and although you wouldn’t think of fish with bbq you 100% have to try his Salmon. Not only was the Salmon a huge hit but on top of that for anyone that wasn’t a meat eater jason made home made falafel that blew away our vegan guests. We even got compliments on how good his Broccoli slaw was!

Jason from the bottom of my heart thank you for making our special day that more special. It has been an absolute pleasure to work with you for these three years and for what feels like a lifetime. Thank you for always being so accommodating to us with your time and patient with us through all the craziness that was moving this wedding due to Covid. You are a salt of the earth human being that I am better for knowing.

If anyone wants a personal testimony for you, you 100% have my permission to give out my number at any time.

I wish you nothing but the utmost success and will without question hire you and your team again in the future when an opportunity presents itself.

Highly Recommended​ 

My husband and I highly recommend Jason and Cowboy BBQ!!! His food is amazing all our guests raved about it, especially the smoked Mac & cheese.

He was great to work with, and was very flexible with us when Covid hit and we had to postpone everything.

He was a complete gentleman and even fixed my plate and carried it to my seat for me which was completely unexpected and very much appreciated!

I wish he was closer to where we live so that I could hire him for all our events in the future.

Thank you very much Jason and your team at Cowboy BBQ for being a part of our special day!

Despite​ a mon​soon...... 5/8/2020

Cowboy BBQ catered our wedding this past weekend. Despite the monsoon's we were hit with throughout the day, the food was on time and amazing!! These guys do a great job!

life saver!!!!!

We attended a wedding in August 2020 and they had Cowboy BBQ. We were astonished at how good it was. Fast forward a month and our wedding venue cancelled. Jason was my first call! He was so easy to work with and so accommodating!! Our guests called and messaged us to tell us how good the food was and to ask about our caterer. The food is absolutely amazing and he's affordable too! you can't go wrong with a cowboy BBQ!!​

You HAVE to try it 

Cowboy BBQ catered our wedding yesterday and it was not only phenomenal food, but phenomenal ownership. You HAVE to try it

A Must try!!!!! wedding date 8/8/2020

Jason and his team catered our wedding 8/8/2020 and we got so many compliments about the food! From the first interaction the responses were quick and thorough. We added the french fry bar which was one of the best decisions ever! Even though the french fries were served during cocktail hour and we were off taking pictures, there was a huge pile of fries and all the toppings hidden for us to enjoy before being introduced - we actually pushed off the introductions to be able to eat because they were so good! The BBQ dinner was fantastic with the favorite being the mac & cheese - Jason even made my plate for me (does it actually get any better than that!?!?) ❤ Thank you so much to Cowboy BBQ, Jason Smith, and his team for the amazing experience for our backyard wedding!​

Best bbq ever - married on 6/13/2020

My wife and I decided to go through with a wedding through the pandemic and finding a caterer was difficult with what we wanted. Luckily, she found Jason’s cowboy BBQ pop up several times, so she reached out to him. He was more than willing to provide services in an only 3 week preparedness (pandemic forced us into last minute decisions).

He drove over an hour to cater our wedding, set up shop at 10am to smoke food and prepare it so it was super fresh by the time we ate at 4pm. He was professional beyond measure. The food was literally so amazing that all of our guests keep commenting on it and asking how we found them. My parents, whom are chefs and a great cook can not stop raving about Cowboy BBQ food and how they did amazing.

The pandemic forced us to cancel our original plans, and thank goodness it did because we would have never had the opportunity to have found the most wonderful bbq you could ever ask for.

I highly suggest going through him- he will work with you, keep in contact appropriately, and is so nice and genuinely excited to do weddings, and I’m sure any event.I'm a paragraph. Click once to begin entering your own content. 

Top Notch Operation 

Cowboy BBQ was a top notch operation up and down! From the planning to the execution, they were everything we were hoping for and more! We would recommend them for anyone looking for a great caterer for any function, especially one that can work within the restrictions because of Covid-19 and NYS!

Best BBQ Ever! -married on 09/21/2019

If I could give Jason and his crew 10 stars, I would! From the beginning of booking, Jason was helpful, professional and above all truly cared about making our special day nothing but perfect! Before booking Jason, we were worried about providing quality food for our large wedding. Jason and his crew knocked it out of the park and we received nothing but positive feedback and raves from our guests about the food! When the wedding party arrived to the reception, Jason came right over to offer appetizers and didn't hesitate to set-up a table and make sure the wedding party was fed while we were waiting to be announced. He was accommodating to our guests with certain diet restrictions and had both the appetizers and dinner ready on time, as scheduled! Even better than the food on the wedding day was the fact that Jason and his crew packed up and put away the leftovers so we could enjoy the food for the next few days! You are making a mistake if you think you will find anyone better than Jason and his team to make food on your wedding day! We are so thankful we chose Cowboy BBQ for our special day!

Couldn't have been happier!!· married on 09/14/2019

The crew at Cowboy BBQ led by Jason are the real deal! We had the best experience working with them last month. They catered our 75 guest outdoor wedding and it couldn't have ran smoother. The crew was there early in the morning and cooked all day and were ready ahead of schedule with appetizers for cocktail hour and dinner service. Everyone raved about the food and we had multiple people say it was the best BBQ they've ever had. The staff were super professional the whole way through. Jason the owner/operator was great to work with throughout the process. Can't say enough about how amazing the food was, these guys are pros! Do yourself a favor, stop fooling around and book these guys asap!

Hands down best bbq around! · married on 08/24/2019

Jason really went above and beyond to make sure that our wedding meal was everything we could have asked for. We had a large wedding (250 people) and I did not hear 1 single bad thing said about the food/ service. Like any wedding, things can get a little hectic- Jason's crew worked hard and everything went so smooth. The food was absolutely amazing. (the mac n cheese is my favorite) Jason's staff got us our plates and brought it to our table. There are so many options on the menu the only issue you'll have is deciding which to pick. I highly recommend Cowboy BBQ for all your catering needs- not only is the food amazing, Jason is a great guy who really will exceed your expectations.

Great experience · married on 07/06/2019

The communication with Jason was great. Very responsive and helpful with ideas. The food was absolutely amazing. The wedding was a month ago and family and friends are still talking about it. The crew cleaned up and packed the leftovers. Recommend them 100% if thinking of a bbq for your wedding.

Best BBQ in NY State! · married on 05/18/2019

WOW! The absolute best. Jason's BBQ is top notch. I drove almost 5 hours to taste his food for my wedding and ended up canceling 2 other appointments after trying Cowboy BBQ. It was that good.

Not only is the food excellent, but Jason himself is one of the nicest people you'll ever meet. He does everything in his power to make sure you have the absolute perfect wedding day. He sets up early, smokes everything on-site, and unlike many other BBQ vendors I contacted, HE is the main person cooking your food on your wedding day. Rest assured, Jason will deliver.

Combine all of this with an affordable price... and Cowboy BBQ is the clear #1 choice. Our guests favorites were the mac + cheeses and brisket and I'm still hearing rave reviews to this day. BEST WEDDING FOOD EVER. Book Jason now!

amber · married on 10/06/2018

The food was absolutely amazing!!!! Jason was kind, professional and personable. Great people to do business with. Would highly recommend for any events catering needs!!! Jason and his staff did a phenomenal job making sure our day was perfect. The Rutz Family 10/06/18 ❤️

Great people and wonderful food -Saralee · married on 09/29/2018

Jason was really great to work with, he is very friendly and responds in a timely fashion. The food was amazing and they did a great job of making sure there was plenty of fresh, hot food for everyone. Another aspect of this company that impressed me as the bride, is that one of the servers held my plate and scooped out servings of food for me and carried it to my table. Exceptional service! I highly recommend them!!!!

Emily · married on 09/22/2018

Jason and his team were great! He was quick to respond throughout the process and was accommodating with a change of venue. The food was fantastic and all of our 150+ guests raved about it. Jason also walked me through the buffet line with my plate so I didn't get anything on my dress. And...we are still eating leftovers! I would recommend this vendor in a heartbeat! No complaints at all!

Gina · married on 09/15/2018

We had Jason catering for my Daughters Wedding, We had a forest wedding...No running water or Electric, No Problem for the Cowboy, He did a great job! No issue the food was so good, every guest was raving how great the food was. We have the meatball sliders and a loaded french fried station for apps...Everyone loved it! and for dinner we had the pork, beef and chicken, with 5 sides...and everything was so good.. and the price was great too, I can't say enough about how great a job they did at this wedding..Thank you so much Jason!! The Palamara Family 9-15-18

Wendy · married on 08/18/2018

Jason was awesome. All the guest loved the food. I would definitely recommend him and the price was great.

Mollie · married on 07/14/2018

Excellent. Hire them. Seriously hire them, choose your menu, tell them where to set up and you're done. They will take care of the food from cooking to putting it out to packing up the leftovers. Your guests will rave about the food. They did our wedding and I barely interacted with them on the wedding day. Everything magically appeared and after the wedding I had a refrigerator full of leftovers and most importantly the guests all raved about how fantastic the BBQ was. I will be hiring them again for sure.

Alyson · married on 07/14/2018

Jason was great to work with, very down to earth. Always responsive, and willing to work with you to make anything easier - not to mention the food was absolutely amazing. Our guests all complimented the food!!

Tamitha · married on 07/07/2018

Our wedding was July 7th and we had 75 people attend. We went with pulled pork and chicken. There was so much food. Everyone was raving about how good the food was. Amazing service! So happy we catered with Cowboy BBQ. We will definitely use their services for other party events! Thank you so much!

Cheryl · married on 06/24/2018

Jason and his crew did an amazing job at our June 2018 wedding! The food was delicious and plentiful and all of our guests commented on it! We were able to customize our menu and it turned out exactly as we'd hoped! I highly recommend! C&B

gordon · married on ​06/16/2018

amazing the food was great everyone loved it we had 250 people there the head table went first and before we were done eating every one had already gotten there food and it was delicious great job and I would recommend them to anyone especially the brisket yummmm

lea · married on 06/09/2018

We had Cowboy BBQ cater our 90 person welcome BBQ the night before our wedding and all our guests completely raved over the food! Jason and his family were so sweet and killed it with the entire meal. We had a variety of meat (plus an onsite grill) and a few sides and it was more than enough to feed our large party. Our BBQ was over two weeks ago and our guests are still talking about the food. We couldn't be happier with the service, value, and quality.

Samantha · married on 06/02/2018

We loved working with Jason for our wedding. He knows what he’s doing when it comes to organizing delicious bbq for a big event. Our family is still raving about his brisket. Jason is a low-key and easy going vendor who works very hard to ensure that the event is a success. He was flexible and collaborated with our team of vendors. We highly recommend Cowboy BBQ!

Tara · married on 04/07/2018

We had Cowboy BBQ cater our wedding on 4-7-18. Everything was phenomenal and far outweighed our expectations. Through the entire process, Jason was professional, extremely flexible in fitting our specific needs, and easy to work with. On the wedding day, they arrived early to set up and their staff was very polite. Someone even fixed my plate and brought it to the table for me. We were nervous about hiring a caterer out of our county but we would highly recommend Cowboy BBQ to everyone. Wedding guests are still approaching us, commenting on how amazing the food was. Additionally, the costs were very reasonable in comparison to other caterers in our area. You will not regret this decision!

Kimberly · married on 10/07/2017

Our food was amazing! Thank you so much for catering our wedding. The broccoli salad was everyone’s favorite. We enjoyed working with you and are still enjoying the leftovers...yum!

Andrew · married on 09/30/2017

Jason did a great job providing the food for our wedding held a few weeks ago. We had decided to add a few appetizers to the menu last minute and he was very accommodating to that also. We were told throughout the evening from many guests that it was some of the best wedding food they had ever had and we couldn't agree more. Overall very happy with the services provided and would look to hire him again for future events.

Kacie · married on 09/09/2017

From the start Jason made booking our wedding easy. We talked back and forth throughout the year and he was very flexible with different food options we wanted. Jason always answered question in a timely manner as well! The prices were great and the food even better. Our guests are still raving about the food and we are still eating the left overs! Joe Kinney, a cowboy BBQ employee, came down the night before the wedding to start smoking meat and he was awesome. He jumped right in and helped with anything we needed and was truly an outstanding guy! Cowboy BBQ was truly the best!

Happy Dad said on Jan 6, 2017 6:48 PM

Our daughter's wedding was on October 22, 2016, it wasn't the best day, as it rained for 3 straight days, but having said that, the FOOD was awesome!!!! From the very beginning of the planning stages we always had immediate response from Jason, Cowboy BBQ owner, and that was very important!! The variety of choices is outstanding!! Our appetizers were awesome, for an example, I had a lot of people telling me the mushrooms and chicken wings were amazing!! We were very satisfied with the food and would use Cowboy BBQ again!! So it rained and rained, we had a WEDDING, ate great food and partied like it was the only thing going on in the world!!!! Thank You, Cowboy BBQ, the bride and groom couldn't have been happier!!!

Cowboy BBQ catered my wedding earlier this year. Staff was very professional and helpful. Great pricing, and outstanding food!! Will definitely recommend to anyone looking for catering!

Teri said on Jan 6, 2017 6:46 PM

I had called approximately 7 other catering services with not one response, then I happened by chance to see an web page for Cowboy BBQ. I called, and got an immediate response from Jason. He was very courteous, flexible, and so amazingly helpful planning every detail for our day. We had about 7 months or so before our wedding, and he kept contact with me through-out the entire time. Making sure I was happy with my menu choices and if I needed anything special or anything out of the ordinary, right up to the day of our event. The day of the Wedding, pictures ran longer than expected and we ended up eating an hour after it was scheduled. Jason and his crew never batted and eye, they were on top of their game and when the food was served for our guest it was not only delicious it was HOT. They really had their work cut out for them, ensuring the food was done to perfection even though my scheduling was way off. We chose beef brisket, pulled pork, fruit salads, salt potatoes, corn on the cob. all cooked on site. Let me just say the food was Incredible !! All of our 100 or so guests raved about the food, and everyone wanted a plate to take home. I would definitely recommend them to anyone, and will be calling them again for any other event I will be having in the future. Thank you, Jason and Cowboy BBQ for the Great service and AWESOME Food !!

ason Smith did a wonderful job with the catering for my wedding reception. The food was wonderfully prepared and delicious. All of my guests raved about the food! The prices were competitive and the professionalism was perfect. I had asked for chicken, pulled pork, and sides. The food was better than I expected and I would definitely recommend Cowboy BBQ to any of my friends for their major events.

Tom said on Jan 6, 2017 6:45 PM

Jason was very easy to work with regarding a menu and guest count. He was there through the whole event even taking the time to talk with my guests. As for the food, best BBQ I have had and his wings are right up with with any wing joint around.

anonymous said on Jan 6, 2017 6:44 PM

Jason Smith and Cowboy BBQ provided the catering for my wedding and it was the best BBQ I have had. His price was extremely fair for the large amount of food. We had brisket and chicken for the meat then four sides. He is friendly had more than willing to work with you to get the timing right and make the day work. We had some of his smoked chicken wings for appetizers and I asked him if he would save some for the wedding party. When I sat down after introductions he brought over a little over a dozen wings for us. They were the best wings ever.

Kim said on Jan 6, 2017 6:43 PM

Jason has catered a few events for me. The food is fantastic, he's always on time, he listens to what you want and does a fantastic job. His BBQ is the best in the area by far and I've had everything from Syracuse to Utica and in between. I highly recommend him for any event.

anonymous said on Jan 6, 2017 6:43 PM

Jason was great to work with for my wedding over the past weekend! We did the Brisket, Pulled Pork and BBQ Chicken, Corn on the Cob, and Salt Potatoes! We had a family member do the other sides, but I had several compliments from guests and family members! It was the best BBQ I have ever had! Jason was very quick at responding to emails and texts! Brought his own tables and supplies! Cleaned up after and bagged up the left overs for me! I would highly recommend Jason and his crew to any event! I know I will use him again! Thanks again Jason!

marlyne and dan said on Jan 6, 2017 6:41 PM

Jason Smith and Cowboy BBQ provided the catering for my wedding at MKJ Farms on July 24th, 2016, and it was the best BBQ! Jason was very quick at responding to us when we first started to look for caterers for our wedding. He arranged for me and my fiance to come taste his food a party he was catering. We got to taste the beef brisket, ribs, potatoes, coleslaw bake beans. When it came time to select a menu, it was very hard, but Jason was instrumental in helping us select what would work for all of our guests (meat eaters and vegetarians) His price was extremely fair for the large amount of food. I remember calling Jason a week before the wedding complaining about how many guests dropped off and he calmed all my frustrations. We got so many compliments throughout the night of how wonderful the food was and even had leftovers! Which most of our guests took home. For our appetizer we chose the smoked wings, meatballs and pasta salad. For dinner, we had beef brisket, ribs and chicken for the meat then for sides, garlic potatoes, coleslaw. He is friendly had more than willing to work with you to get the timing right and make the day work. Could have not asked for a better caterer. I hope to taste his food soon again.
