Top BBQ Catering & Help related questions

It depends on how many guests you have and if they are mostly children, adults, or a mix of both. BBQ catering services usually have either per person packages or order by the tray menus that can serve as a guideline. It’s best to consult your Tasker about this to guide you through exactly how much to order. You don’t want to be left with a fridge full of leftovers, or worse, run out of food!

We highly recommend putting up a task closer to your preferred schedule, usually a week or two before your party date. Booking too far into the future can make it difficult for Taskers to commit, but you also want to make sure that there’s enough time for your Tasker to prepare all the meats, sauces, and all the other ingredients for your BBQ catering service.

It’s possible. You need to make sure that you specify your needs, allergies, and dietary restrictions to your Tasker before booking a BBQ catering service. Most services usually provide pulled pork and other slow-smoked meats, homemade sides, and sauces containing nuts, onions, mustard, pepper, molasses, and other allergens. Letting your Tasker know that you have specific requests allows them to prepare ahead of time if ever they accommodate them.

Airtasker Pay found on our platform is best for cashless transactions. You can also pay via cash if that’s what you prefer. Don’t forget to inform your Tasker about the payment method you will use to pay for their service. Also, discuss if they require a downpayment before your private party or corporate event or if you could pay the total amount on the day itself.

What do BBQ catering & help services include?

BBQ catering services can be a perfect way to celebrate company picnics, block parties, weddings and other special events. Hiring a Tasker to help you set up and clean after the event can make your party hosting even easier and hassle-free. Here are some services you can get when you book a barbecue catering near you for parties and events:

BBQ delivery catering

If you love the convenience of having your party food delivered to your venue, barbeque delivery is the way to go! Your Tasker cooks the meats at their own kitchen and delivers these freshly made savory treats to your venue. They are ready to be eaten and enjoyed by your guests! Feel free to inform your Tasker whether you prefer Korean BBQ catering, American, or any other cuisine. If you already have a favorite restaurant in mind, you can also hire a Tasker to deliver your favorite samgyeopsal and bulgogi, or mac ’n cheese, chicken wings, and brisket.

On-site BBQ catering

Want to provide your guests with a complete sensory experience? Getting on-site BBQ catering near you for your party allows them to enjoy flavorful aromas and mouthwatering visuals as they see their BBQ being grilled right in front of them. Your Tasker firing delicious barbecue on-site provides ambiance and excitement to your guests while ensuring the freshest meal possible!


Thinking of including appetizers, desserts, beverages, or cocktails at your party? Hiring a chef to prepare the meals in your own kitchen while the party is ongoing can match the live BBQ experience you want to provide for your guests!

BBQ food truck catering

Elevate your party by getting BBQ food truck catering near you! Food trucks are basically mobile kitchens, so they have a more flexible catering menu that allows the guests to mix and match their own favorite barbecue. BBQ truck catering is also flexible in terms of location, so getting mobile BBQ catering near you is perfect if you’re planning to have multiple venues for your party! 

Though food trucks for hire usually have fewer people in their staff, you can always feel free to hire someone as wait staff and take orders, recommend dishes based on your guests’ tastes and preferences, deliver food to the tables, and ensure an outstanding party experience!

Full-service BBQ catering

Through a full-service BBQ catering, you can sit back and relax while your Tasker takes care of everything! Your Tasker is there with you to ensure that your event is flawless and that your barbecue is perfect from ingress to egress. They slice the meats and other food items and serve your guests so you can freely mingle and enjoy your event to the fullest! Discuss the inclusions with your Tasker, and feel free to add tables, chairs, and wait staff to the package.
