Thank you for your interest in KC’s Rib Shack’s catering and delivery services. The following guide has been fourteen years in the making. After feeding thousands of people over the years, we have combined our experience and expertise to help guide you through the decision making process and customize which KC’s service is the best fit for your special occasion.
The packages listed below are designed to feed 12 people or more. For parties of 11 people or less please refer to our normal restaurant menu and contact the restaurant directly at 603-627-7427 to order. Most catering orders require a minimum of 48 hours notice (we will make every attempt to accommodate your needs on shorter notice if we can). Because our catering times are limited and tend to fill up quickly, we strongly recommend that you reserve your party as far in advance as possible. Even if you don’t know an exact head count at this point, but you know the date and time frame of your event, it’s best to contact us and get your catering reservation onto the calendar early. We can then tweak things as we move closer to your event.
Also, most of the food which we cater or deliver may be sampled at our restaurant in Manchester, NH. When you are ready to place your order or if you have any questions please contact us and we will be glad to help you with quantities, pricing, and any other questions you may have.
Contact our catering dept. at 603-627-7427 or KCsBBQ@gmail.com.
When inquiring via email please include as much information as possible such as:
• Your name and business name if applicable
• Phone number
• Best time to contact you
• Delivery or event address if needed
• Date and time you would like our services
• Estimated number of people you will be feeding

Ribs Chicken & Sausage • Preheat oven to 350°F. Place meat on a foil lined baking sheet. Baste the ribs with either some of our JOL (Juice of life) or make up your own simple baste. One of the most common and simple BBQ mop recipes is this: 90% apple juice, (or other fruit juice) & 10% oil. Maybe a little bbq sauce and vinegar or hot sauce if you wish. Either apply with a mop or even a wad of paper towels work fine in a pinch. Sausage can reheated in the pan it came in or a foil packet. Toss into the oven for about 30 minutes give or take 5 min. Temperature should reach 175°F at thickest point in meats. Meats can also be reheated in the oven then tossed onto the grill for some last minute high heat lovin’ to char things up a bit or even reheated on the grill over indirect heat then charred at the end. To serve place ribs meat side down and splash with a little more baste. Cut into individual bones. Chicken breasts and leg quarters can be cut into two as well for smaller portions.
Beef Brisket • Pre-heat oven to 350°F. Carefully remove cover from foil tray brisket is in. Corners can be sharp. Add about a ¼ cup of water and re-seal the lid. Heat for about 30 minutes to an hour depending on the amount of brisket you have. Reheat until brisket’s internal temperature reaches 170°F. If you have purchased the brisket unsliced make sure you slice the “flat” portion of the brisket across the grain and the “chunk” or “point” portion into 1.5” chunks.
Pulled Pork • Pork can either be reheated in the oven or on the stove. If you have the oven space just leave it in the foil tray it came in and maybe add a little water. Seal it up and bake it until the temperature reaches 165° stirring and checking the temp every 15 or 20 minutes. To reheat on the stove top, place pork into a large pan with ¼ to a ½ cup of water and bring back to temperature over medium heat stirring with tongs every 5 or 10 minutes until thoroughly reheated and 165°.
Side Items • Most side items can just be reheated on the stove over med heat adding a little water if needed. Rice and potatoes can be reheated in a 350° oven by adding a small amount of water to the rice and a little milk to the mashed potatoes and covering. Reheat to 165° apx. 30 minutes.
Finishing Meats On Your Grill InstructionsIf you have picked up hot ribs, chicken or sausages to finish on your grill please follow these instructions. You will need some of our JOL (Juice of life) or make up your own simple baste. One of the most common and simple BBQ mop recipes is this: 90% apple juice, (or other fruit juice) & 10% oil. Maybe adding a little bbq sauce and vinegar or hot sauce if you wish. Your ribs, chicken and sausage are completely cooked and just need to be tossed onto the grill for some last minute high heat lovin’ to char things up a bit. For Sausages, cut in half lengthwise and grill both sides to bring up to a hot serving temperature and char up a bit maybe hitting them with a little baste just before removing from grill.. Transfer to a cutting board and cut into 1 inch bite size chunks. For Chicken, our goal here is to crisp up the skin and bring the chicken up to serving temperature. Grill skin side up for a couple minutes. Flip skin side down until you get some good grill marks then roll them onto their sides leaning each chicken up against each other in order to char up the entire skin. Baste with JOL in the last minute or two of grilling. Cut in half if desired. For Ribs, Place whole rack bone side down on grill for a couple minutes. Flip rack and baste back side with JOL. Grill for a couple minutes meat side down allowing the sugars in the rub to caramelize and some charring to form. Before removing from grill flip one more time basting the tops of the ribs with JOL just before transferring to cutting board. To serve, place rack meat side down and splash with a little more baste. Cut into individual bones.
