STAFFORD - Big Barlows BBQ and Catering is owned and operated by Christopher Barlow Sr.  His business is centered in Manahawkin.  "In 2019, I started the company so I could create a personal schedule to spend time with my family," said Barlow.  The business prides itself on serving the best fresh food and all is made from scratch.  "My experience and attention to detail is what sets us apart."

Big Barlow's Barbeque and Catering is a food truck business and on site caterer.  

Chef Chris' journey includes cooking barbeque food for 15 years. He has worked at a number of restaurants.  His greatest experience was working under Danny Myers in NYC.  He has helped people open restaurants and trained many kitchen employees along the way.  Chris is also classically trained and holds a culinary degree.  He is a husband and father to three sons and hopes that one day they will also have the same love for producing great BBQ food. Chris is very big on customer service and satisfaction, this is why he decided to take a chance and start his own BBQ company.
