Friendly and family owned

Encouraged by compliments of the quality of the food, Hoppy started hosting more and more events, eventually starting Hoppy’s Barbeque. 

Hoppy hosted a pig roast for his family and friends serving up some of the best food in town. This turned into an annual affair and an event that no one wanted to miss.

    Don’t take our word for it – here’s what our clients say:

    It has been two years and my guests are still raving about the food!!  His passion and expertise in barbecuing contributed to one of the most successful events my husband and I ever hosted.  John’s bbg know-how produces incredible smoke-kissed flavoring that leaves guest licking their fingers.  Other success factors John displays are professionalism and organizational skills.  The food is timely, served hot, and he uses the freshest of ingredients.  His operational and equipment hygiene along with safety usage precautions ensure guests and facilities are not at risk.  John is also extremely patient and courteous with guests and they thoroughly enjoy his friendly demeanor.

    John (Hoppy) as his friends call him catered a pig roast at my home in Peabody.  The party was for my wife’s birthday.  There were 88 people invited so a professional catering company was in order.  I had attended a graduation party a year or so back that Hoppy had catered and was very impressed with his service.  Hoppy was very pleasant to work with, a good listener with some great ideas about the menu and overall set up in my yard.  The party was a big success, very organized and every had a great meal and a great time.”

    We hired Mr. Hopping on July 17, 2010 to do a pig roast for our annual family party.  We had 60 people attend.  Mr. Hopping smoked a 50 lb piglet, 9 racks of ribs and 48 chicken thighs, which were all done to perfection.  Everyone raved about the food and we did not have any leftovers!!!  Mr. Hopping was very professional and personable, answering any questions that our guests had.  He was very neat, cleaning when necessary and on a timely basis.  When he left, you would have never known we had a pig roast.  Everything was neat and clean.  We have recommended him to friend and numerous people asked for his business card.  Definitely would have him cook again for us!!!”
