James and Jeanine’s Mountain Terrace wedding ceremony.

Jeanine and James’ beautiful wedding took place at the scenic Mountain Terrace in Woodside, which is among one of Catering by Dana‘s favorite locations. This venue is amazing because of the wonderful evergreen trees and raw nature which surrounds it. If you’ve ever driven up Woodside Road/84 and passed by Alice’s restaurant then you’ve also seen the location of the Mountain Terrace – it’s on the same intersection.

Texas-Style Barbecue

Barbecue in the United States usually involves cooking meat for long periods of time at low temperatures with smoke from a wood or charcoal fire. At Absolute Barbecue Company, we bring our own five foot barbecue pit to your special event and slow cook over a mesquite fire.  This form of cooking adds a distinctive smoky taste to the meat and fills the air with an appealing aroma that smells like summer, any time of year.

Barbecue is a favorite style of preparing meat, especially in the cuisine of Texas.  Texas is a very, very big state and Texas barbecue traditions can be divided into four general styles according to where you happen to be in Texas at the time: East Texas, Central Texas, South Texas and West Texas.  The Central and East Texas varieties are generally the most well-known.  Author Griffin Smith, Jr. in a 1973 Texas Monthly article described the dividing line between Central and East Texas barbecues as “a line running northward between Dallas and Fort Worth.

Absolute Barbecue Company’s slow-smoker

Absolute Barbecue Company draws from the best of East Texas and West Texas barbecue traditions.  In the East Texas style the meat is slowly cooked to the point that it is “falling off the bone” and marinated in a thick slightly sweet tomato-based seasoned barbecue sauce that keep the meat moist and delicious.  In the West Texas tradition, Absolute Barbecue Company applies a mildly spicy rub to the meat and cooked over indirect heat from mesquite wood giving it a unique Absolute Barbecue flavor in the good ol’ Texas tradition.
