“Ingrid & Mark:
Further to my call yesterday I wanted to make sure you have a record of how pleased I am with our selection of Smoke and Spice for our event. As you can appreciate, the planning of a conference of this size is a daunting task. Successful execution is dependent upon the collective efforts of many. You and your entire crew arrived well in advance of the event to ensure you were ready. It was extremely hot and uncomfortable but the entire set-up was done with a smile. There was a lot going on and not everything was going right. However, when it came to your set-up, I didn’t have to worry about anything – I just observed how passionately you covered off every detail.
Now for the best part; the food and service was GREAT! Here are some of the comments I got, “I am a big fan of BBQ and this is as good as it gets”, and, “I thought the trophies were part of the race theme and then I found out they were from BBQ competitions… they would get my vote; the ribs were crazy”, and, “I’ve been to all six Noble annual conferences and they’ve had BBQ at every one of them – they sure went all out this time”.
Ultimately it’s all about the food but for me there is another aspect that is equally important. That’s who I am dealing with. From the get-go it was a lot of fun planning this with you. I knew five minutes into our first conversation that this was going to be an enjoyable experience. And it was.
Thanks for everything and… expect to hear from me for future events. You’re the best!
From Your Friend,”

“Hi Mark and Ingrid! Before another minute goes by I want to let you know how thoroughly pleased we are at the fantastic dinner you provided for our dinner and auction last night. Everyone is still talking about the food! Your staff, the display, your timeliness and professionalism, but especially the FOOD was absolutely wonderful. Thank you for helping me select the absolute best menu possible, every morsel was gone by this morning. If you wanted to open a restaurant or business in this area you would have several hundred hungry fans at your door, based on last night’s success. Thank you for taking us on as a customer, I know the drive up here is not easy. Should you ever need a reference, please use us. By the way, our auction and dinner made about $250,000 for our new school! We are thrilled. I’m so sorry I missed you when you left so I couldn’t thank you last night,but again, YOU ARE THE BEST! We loved it. Phillis Jones co-chairman, Go West! dinner and auction ”

“Wow! I never had such delicious ribs, chicken and baked beans. I’m really not a BBQ food eater, but yours was quite tasty. We’ll definitely be contacting you for our upcoming event in May that’s why I originally had contacted to you to cater our National Public Works Employee Appreciation Luncheon. We’ll be in touch soon. We’ll probably do the same food choices again. “

“Mark: I just wanted to tell you how pleasantly surprised we were as to the quality of your food yesterday at my birthday lunch. Everyone one of my employees said that it was by far the finest barbecue that they have ever had, and a friend of mine that was here from Atlanta said that the chicken was the best that he has ever tasted in his life and it was so good that he did not even taste any of the other meats. You have a very high quality product and service and we will not hesitate to use you again or recommend you to our friends and business associates. “

“To the team at Smoke & Spice: You guys rock! Our Annual Holiday party is on its fifth year now, and this years’ bash was by far the biggest…and you guys, working with us for the first time, did an absolutely incredible job!! Not only did you provide delicious food, you also delivered outstanding, smooth, controlled and sophisticated service. Most importantly, you seamlessly integrated your service with our setup – using our elements with yours – remaining flexible and making it all work together. And man, was that Pig a hit! Definitely MVP of the night!!! I have already been asked by several people your name, and have more than gladly forwarded a glowing recommendation. Did I say you guys Rock? Well, you do, and our party was every bit better than it ever was because of you. Bravo. Can’t wait ‘till next year…then again, can we throw a party for Valentines Day… and St. Patrick’s…and… Warmest Holiday Wishes- ”

” I highly recommend Smoke and Spice for your next party, event or office lunch. They make the best ribs I’ve ever had. They are also perfect for any type of party because they come pre-cut, and although the BBQ sauce is excellent, they do not need them if you are afraid to get messy. The sides are also amazing. I had people coming up to me at my party, saying, “I don’t usually like baked-beans, but I love these”. For appetizers, nothing beats their jalepeno peppers stuffed with pulled pork and wrapped in bacon. They are amazing, and not too spicy. Lastly, the prices were great, the service was excellent and they were very easy to work with. I will use Smoke and Spice again and refer them to all of my friends, family and associates. ”
