Summer Picnic


Clarendon Ballroom
Picnic Menu

Pulled pork BBQ
Our chef chooses Smithfield pork, rubs it with his own mixture of spice, then slowly smokes it over apple and cherry wood. The use of the fruit wood gives the meat a delicate and distinctive smoke flavor, and the long, slow cooking makes it tender. After meticulously hand pulling the meat, he then dresses it with a touch of vinegar and some of his homemade bbq sauce. Absolutely delicious.

$7.00 per guest

Baby back ribs
Same process as the pulled pork, except we use meaty baby backs and finish them on the grill with a little bbq sauce so that it glazes the exterior of the meat.
