To hang with the best, you’ve got to be the best. Making it to the Super Bowl means you are the best. Blue Ribbon Barbecue has successfully produced its award-winning barbecue to ravenous fans for the past sixteen Super Bowls. Along with Brady, Belichick and the rest of the Patriots, Blue Ribbon’s championship team is gearing up for setting some all-time records on Sunday, February 5th.
Over the years, Blue Ribbon Barbecue has accumulated seven BBQ smokers, including New England’s largest BBQ smoker, inside of its state-of-the-art central kitchen dubbed “The Commissary.” These wood-fired smokers run 24 hours a day, 7 days a week, 365 days a year, shutting down only for cleaning. This year’s plans for Super Sunday will provide football fans 3000 lbs. of Memphis Dry-Rubbed pork spare ribs, 1200 lbs. of North Carolina pulled pork, 1500 lbs. of Texas beef brisket and over 1000 lbs. of BBQ chicken wings. Chowhounds will soak these succulent meats with over 500 gallons of Blue Ribbon’s BBQ sauces. Lines will be long. Service will be brisk.
Get in here and eat!
Inspired by the classic roadside BBQ joints that dot the American South, Blue Ribbon Barbecue offers you the best of authentic Southern regional barbecue. All of our barbecue is cooked at low temperatures for long periods of time over oak and hickory hardwoods, producing moist, flavorful meats and distinctive pink ring which is a sign of real barbecue. Blue Ribbon Barbecue was founded in 1995 and operates two restaurants and one catering location. Blue Ribbon Barbecue has been the recipient of numerous awards, including being awarded Boston Magazine’s “Best of Boston” five times.  Call for your Super Bowl party today@617.244.7427 or click here Catering
