Mansmith’s BBQ LLC is a family owned and operated barbecue catering and special event company. From a very humble beginning of cooking for non profits and the local farmers market to the current operation of a multitude of events and caterings almost daily. Mansmith’s BBQ started in 1989 as an off shoot of Mansmith Enterprises Inc which manufactured barbecue seasonings and sauces. What better way is there to promote barbecue seasonings then to let people taste great barbecued food with the seasonings on it. After years of operating together under the same name, we decided to split the two different sides of the business apart and run them independently. Jon and Juanita Mansmith, kept the seasoning manufacturing and Mike and Shannon Mansmith along with their four children took over all of the caterings and special events.

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 in you own backyard, company parking lot, job site, public park, or banquet hall facility.

Mansmith’s BBQ LLC 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, crew, mobile kitchen, and towable BBQ pits to handle your event. We make it easy for you by doing all of the work for a memorable meal at your special occasion. Our events are best described as an “all you can eat” gourmet buffet that is professionally prepared and punctually presented by a cordial crew of highly trained and experienced staff.

We can either cook on-site or deliver a hot, freshly prepared barbecue to your event location. Our meats are either cooked California Style, on an open grill, or slow smoked in our enclosed smoker, for a great barbecue flavor.
