As the weather transitions from winter to spring, Houston celebrates its roots with the internationally renowned Houston Livestock Show and Rodeo. Whether you're a novice or a veteran, the BBQ cookoff, concerts, carnival, and other festivities certainly capture your attention and whet your appetite for all the delicious food. And if you've never been—well, you're missing out on world class events, so be sure to pencil those dates into your calendar for the next time around.
You don't have to spend a whole year counting down the days in eager anticipation! Why not create your own event by hosting a barbeque party?
Whether you're planning a Texan-style welcome for a group of out-of-towners, throwing a party for those unfortunate enough to have missed the Rodeo, or simply celebrating National Barbecue Month (a cause we can really rally behind!), make your event the stuff of legends with an array of smoked meats and homemade sides. The best part is you won't even have to worry about doing all the cooking yourself: pick your barbeque favorites from Goode Company Catering's mouthwatering menu options and have it delivered to your door. We'll make sure your party sizzles, thanks to our foolproof recipe for success.
1) Nothing beats quality meats:
Considered by many to be the crown jewel of the Houston Rodeo, the Rodeo Cook-Off is a fiery showdown among some of the state's most formidable pit masters. Every year, the Cook-Off fills the air with the sweet scent of smokers and the rumbling of hungry stomachs. It only makes sense to create the same effect at your very own Rodeo Party by serving up barbeque that smells so good it makes everyone's mouth water in anticipation.
At Goode Company Catering, barbeque is our way of life. This means we smoke our meats with our signature mesquite-wood before we deliver it to your doorstep, carefully packaged to ensure none of the smoky, juicy goodness gets lost in transit.
2) Choose your favorite sides:
Even the most die-hard carnivores know that man cannot live on meat alone. That's why we also offer a selection of side dishes made with the same time, dedication, and fresh ingredients that we put into our barbeque. Our side dishes are made to complement the smoky goodness of our barbeque. Choose from our tangy coleslaw, creamy potato salad, our spicy jambalaya, or one of our two types of baked beans. Whatever side dishes you end up choosing, they are sure to turn your barbeque main course into a well-rounded meal. Of course, your guests will also love our jalapeño cheese bread and barbeque sauce, both handcrafted daily from Goode family recipes.
3) Don't forget about dessert:
A Goode barbeque delivery automatically raises the standard for dessert by several notches. But never fear, we've got you covered—in layers of the choicest Texas pecans, farm-fresh eggs, and all the other handpicked ingredients that go into our grandmother's legendary pecan pie recipe.
Our Brazos Bottom Pecan Pies are considered by many to be the best in town. In fact, they're so popular that they've been given as special gifts to foreign dignitaries, professional athletes, and A-list celebrities. Round out your Rodeo Party with one of our pies and watch as your guests' eyes first grow wide when you casually mention that Oprah featured them in an edition of O Magazine, then close in absolute bliss over that first delicious bite.
4) When we say we deliver, we really mean it:
Whether you decide to place a delivery order for brisket, ribs, sausage, or a little bit of everything, we make sure that the product you receive is topnotch. Not only do we prepare every meal from scratch in our own Goode Company kitchens, we are deeply involved in every step of the process—from procuring the ingredients to delivering the finished goods to your doorstep. We don't leave a single detail to chance in making sure that we go above and beyond your expectations.
5) Give your guests something to reminisce about:
After an epic Rodeo Party, your guests are sure to hint that they'll be counting down the days until you throw the next one. To help tide them over, why not send them off with a delicious party favor? Our homemade pralines fit the bill nicely. Chewy or crunchy, they're a delightful reminder of good times with friends and family because they, of course, are made with the same love and care as the feast you just enjoyed.
