Meat so tender
You don't need teeth!

We offer catering

Welcome to Jayhawkers BBQ

Jayhawkers BBQ Catering is based in Lawrence, Kansas, the home of the original Jayhawkers.   We offer catering and delivery services in the general areas of Lawrence, Topeka, and the greater Kansas City metro area.

Prime BBQ and More

Low and slow is the way to go!  All of our meats are fresh, all natural and the highest quality of beef, chicken, and pork.  Traditional barbecue; slow cooked, lightly seasoned, and never sauced.  That’s right!  We want you to taste the meat and not the sauce.  BBQ done right doesn’t need sauce.  But, we will gladly provide it on the side when requested.    

Although we specialize in traditional BBQ, we may still be able to meet your culinary needs. We can meet most dietary preferences; Halal, Kosher, Vegan, and Vegetarian.
