We pride ourselves on our award-winning BBQ sauces including our Original, Hot & Spicy and our famous Chipotle Sin Sauce. We have won Best Sauce over 50 times at rib cook-offs across the country. We use only the freshest ingredients and try to source all our ingredients locally.



Take any dish to the next level with our finely perfected BBQ rub. This rub is the base of our award-winning ribs, but doesn’t stop there. Our all-purpose premium rub will bring out the best of  any dish including meat, poultry, pork, or vegetables.



Phil with Carson City BBQ is the absolute best! We asked Phil to cater our ~140 person wedding. He was great with communication & planning, and was able to provide chairs, tables, tablecloths, and drinks for our reception as well! We were a bit nervous since we didn’t have time to do a tasting beforehand, but Phil knows his stuff. The chicken, tri-tip, and ribs he brought were FANTASTIC. Every guest raved about the food, and many guests told me that they ate so much they had to skip dessert & even stop drinking, because they were so full!!! There was plenty for everyone, and the buffet line they set up moved so quickly! Phil also brought a bartender who was fabulous at serving all our guests & kept everything moving quickly. If you want the best food in the area, don’t hesitate to hire Carson City BBQ. Thank you!!!

Phil from Carson City BBQ catered our family gathering yesterday and it was fantastic!
The ribs and pulled pork were some of the best we have ever had, and everyone raved about the food. Everything was prepared on time and we had more than enough food for our guests. I highly recommend Carson City BBQ!

We had Carson City BBQ cater our wedding last weekend and Phil and his crew BLEW us away the communication during the planning was on spot Phil was so helpful with his Expert knowledge of cooking for a wedding party and what we needed to do to make things go smooth was top notch.

Phil showed up early they set up the smoker and cooked some of the best BBQ I ever had in my life. The guests at the wedding came up to us and kept on saying this is the best food we ever had at a wedding and that meant the world to us. Guests where getting seconds and thirds, fourths of the food.

I can honestly say if your thinking about having BBQ at your wedding this is the one and only place I would recommend Phil is beyond a pro he’s a expert at what he does and Carson City BBQ gets 10 stars if I could give them that.

Thanks so much Phil and team for doing your best for our 200+ guests the Tri-tip was amazing and the chicken was moist and our guests where full and extremely happy.
