The Mansmith family has been barbecuing in San Benito County for over 30 years, for groups large and small. We are capable of providing custom tailored, informal as well as formal, gourmet barbecued meal presentations either in your own back yard, company parking lot, park, or banquet hall facilities.

MANSMITH’S is very flexible as far as menu and presentation, depending on your own personal requirements. We are fully insured and equipped with a Health Department approved mobile kitchen, towable BBQ pits and smoker to handle your event. We make it easy for you by handling all of the details for a memorable meal at your special event.

ALL barbecues are not the same! Our famous BBQ's include what we proudly refer to as the "MANSMITH’S FACTOR "! This is best described as an "all you can eat" gourmet buffet that is professionally prepared by our certified staff, and punctually presented by a cordial crew of highly trained and experienced people.

For on-site presentations, we arrive approximately 4 hours prior to your scheduled serving time. Our meat is slow cooked on an open grill to provide your guests with a mouth watering cooking show. This also gives us ample time to prepare a delicious hors d'oeuvre selection if you prefer. We are also glad to offer BBQ tips and free cooking lessons to you and your guests as they mingle around the BBQ pit at your event.  For those occasions when a "show" isn't essential, or there are space limitations (our BBQ pits are big), we can deliver and serve your freshly prepared meal, hot and on time with our same professional, experienced staff. 

Our numerous menu items include many old secret family recipes which have been tried and proven over the years. Our internationally marketed line of award winning barbecue seasonings definitely make a MANSMITH'S BBQ a memorable event. The countless crowds of people that we have served over the years will attest to our reputation of being the best barbecue in the country.

We can create a fabulous menu for every celebration. Typical events would be:


• Receptions

• Class Reunions

• Weddings

• Anniversaries

• Company Picnics

You can choose from our wide variety of menu selections. MANSMITH'S has become well known for their barbecued Tri-Tip sandwiches and dinners. A typical "all you can eat dinner" consists of a fresh tossed green salad, ranch style beans, barbecued garlic French bread, and a meat selection of either Tri-Tip, half chicken, pork ribs, pork loin, smoked beef brisket, smoked pork shoulder, whole hogs, or combination of meats. We also barbecue hot dogs for the kids!  There are numerous other things that we can also barbecue, so please give us a call so that we can customize your special event.  For this reason, we do not offer a cut and dried menu.  We want your party to be special and designed with you in mind!

Other optional menu items would include coleslaw, macaroni salad, potato salad, caesar salad,  vegetable trays, fruit trays, deli trays, barbecued sausage, cheese and crackers, or dips and chips. MANSMITH'S also makes a crowd pleasing super gooey chocolate brownie for dessert or seasonal shortcake if desired. Iced tea, lemonade, cold sodas, and coffee can also be provided.

Make your next event a memory, not just a meal!  Please give us a call at (831) 902-0868 for a free estimate, or stop by our FRIDAY BBQ at  Bertuccio’s Lot (2410 Airline Highway, Hollister, CA), to try our food or chat with us to see what we can do for you.
