items are available, and smoked meat tops the list of requested
items. Ghrayyeb said, “We smoke our own prime rib
and brisket and maintain a variety of woods to smoke the
meat, such as hickory and mesquite. Some customers request
the smoked entrees again and again. Our catering service
is versatile, and we’re accustomed to working within
a customer’s budget.”
