March 8, 2013, Holy Smoke Hog Roast was invited to participate in the Evening in the Garden Noble Event. At this event, our company was awarded Best Food. We beat out many other food vendors including Morton's and Sullivan's Steak House.
Followed by being voted best entree in the Taste of the Southside in 2014, beating out Texas Road House and many others who brought pulled pork.
Below we have listed our available references and reviews from past years. We are very thankful for our past customers' feedback. If you are a past customer and would like to give us your feedback simply email us and we will get you added in.
Holy Smoke catered my wedding along with making some great appitizers (that I asked for which turned out great, but very difficult to make) the food was the best. The brisket was so good and the pulled pork was incredible! They were so helpful and fantastic! I would highly recommended them for your catering needs!!!

Employee Christmas Party
Holy Smoke catered our corporate staff holiday luncheon for 180 people. Food was fabulous and our employees raved all afternoon about the cheese potatoes and the tenderness of the pork loin. Mary was great to work with and even prepared a plate of food for me when she noticed that I hadn't been through the serving line due to my other responsibilities at our luncheon.
Next time we have an event, Holy Smoke will be the first (and only) call we will need to make!

We loved having the holy smoke team cater our wedding at Brown County State Park. Guests said it was the best wedding reception food they had ever had - and I agree. They did a fantastic job! We had a whole roast hog, the roasted chicken, corn on the cob, vegetarian beans, cheesy potatoes (such a hit, and they made them vegetarian friendly as well!) apple butter and biscuits, corn bread, little veggie lasagnas, corn bread and cole slaw. I recommend all of it.

Things were fabulous! The food was awesome and everything went very well
From the first time I contacted with Holy Smoke Hog Roast Company until the event was complete, the people at this company were very professional and helpful. When I first spoke to them, I was unsure of the amount of food I needed to order. Katie was very helpful when making the order to get us what we would need after listening to me explain what we wanted and how many people we expected. She was sure to explain each cost up front, what services would be provided and Katie clarified any details I asked about. Then came the day of the event. They arrived earlier than they said they would because they were unsure of traffic and exactly where the home was. They asked where we would like them to set up and how we would like them to park before moving off the driveway. They quickly prepared their area and even helped with a couple things we were finishing setting up in the serving area. The workers were extremely nice to everyone, when it came time to serve, the workers were answering questions, giving out taste samples as people waited to get in line. They were cleaning as they went and making sure that food was hot and meat in the servers all the time. I would say that they did far more than I anticipated and have nothing but great things to say about their professionalism. When it was time for them to leave, they ensured that they had cleaned up what they brought, finished packaging what we asked them to, in reference to the leftovers- which were not a lot, both the meat and side dishes, as well as leaving out some food as we asked. The bill was exactly as quoted, and the service better than expected. Lastly, however most importantly, the food was absolutely amazing and everyone enjoyed it. I have had many of my friends call to ask who it was that did our hog roast because the food was so good and I am glad to tell them that Holy Smoke Hog Roast did the job, and I would hire them again for our next event
“We so appreciated that you catered my daughter and son-in-law’s wedding last July 3rd. When I was worried about there being way more guests than planned, you showed up with extra food from another one of your catering events. Thank you so much for solving a problem you didn’t even know we had! The food was delicious and nicely served in the buffet. I have been urging the kids to have a 4th of July party this year to celebrate their one year anniversary because the wedding was so much fun. We’ll see if they do it and then we can invite you to bring another hog.”
“HOLY SMOKE! We hired Roger and his family for a rehearsal dinner last year, and couldn’t be happier with the results. All our guests RAVED about the food, and still mention it after all this time. The food was great, on time, fairly priced… I can’t recommend them highly enough! (I would recommend ordering more than you actually need… it makes for great leftovers!)”
“Holy Smoke provided excellent food and service to our family reunion. The food was delicious, the amounts were plentiful, and everything was delivered and set up on time and with a smile. 40 big thumbs up from the Dawson Family Reunion!”

The service was always top-notch, the food quality and presentation was outstanding and the price is right. You can tell they put a lot of tlc into their catering.

Son’s Wedding Rehearsal Dinner
and Daughter’s Wedding
We truly had a wonderful experience using your company for our catering needs for our son's rehearsal dinner last August. First, the quality of the food was over the top! All of our guests asked where we found you and complimented on the wonderful taste, variety and presentation of the food. You, your wife, and all of your staff were so friendly and accommodating to us through out the entire experience from our initial contact with you to the day of our event. We appreciated the manner in which you served our guests, making sure that the food was plentiful and that all were served, even for seconds, before you departed. You also left us with all we needed to continue to serve our guests after you left. We were so happy that we elected to call on you again to cater our daughter's wedding on June 18th of this year. Thank you for giving us the opportunity to provide feedback and we would be happy to serve as a reference for your future customers! We look forward to continue working with you on our current event, and those in the future!

Holy Smoke Hog Roast Company is truly committed to exceptional quality. They have catered many successful events for Fair Haven Christian Church of Trafalgar Indiana. The food is always exceptional and their staff is highly professional. The Holy Smoke team always works extremely hard to meet every need of their client. I would highly recommend Holy Smoke Hog Roast Company!
I hope this finds you with a “full plate” for the upcoming catering season. We would look forward to serving as a reference for the Holy Smoke Hog Roast Company. The success of our daughter and son-in-law’s couples wedding shower was in no small part due to the excellent food and good wholesome fun created by the hog roast. Your customer service attitude was appreciated from your attention to equipment placement and set-up to the timing of serving the delicious fare. Complements from our guests were abundant as are the fond memories of the special day. I have included a couple pictures of the day for your file.

Church Ministry Dinner
I just wanted to let you know that everything was absolutely fabulous. I told the story a million times of me finding you on the internet, knowing nothing about you and your obvious faith on the website, then the food being absolutely amazing. Glory to God and thanks so much. I gave your name out a lot and hope it drives some business. You have been absolutely fantastic to work with and I am so grateful. Thanks so much.
You did a wonderful job. Everyone had great things to say about the
food, to include that it was the best catered food they had ever had.
I will absolutely use you again.
Wishing you all the best,
The food and service your wife and son provided were excellent. This is the first time we have done a hog roast and it was very nice not to have to do it myself or worry about it. We will definitely be using Holy Smoke Hog roast in the future. We also got many excellent comments from our guests on how good the pork was.
Thank you very much for the great experience.
