Default Best way to serve BBQ sauces at a wedding catering?

I've been doing catering through our restaurant for 3 years and one area I've never been quite pleased on presentation and convience for a buffet style wedding catering is how to serve the BBQ Sauces. One of my sauces is pretty thick so it doesn't dispense very well through most pumps or squeeze bottles.

Ways I've tried...
from crock pots using small ladels
From bowls using small ladels
2 oz. clear plastic cups with clear lids
Plastic squeeze style bottles
Glass syrup bottles

Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated. Perhaps some pics...
I have a wedding for 260 this coming Saturday, perhaps I could try something new.
Thanks

I use bowls with ladle spoons and little spoon holders. I know it can be messy, but I use cloth under them to keep the area nice. If and when they get messy just remove the cloth and replace with a fresh one. You can also get something darker than white as it will last even longer.

Excellent question Wooden Pig!

BBS, I like that idea and will have to give it a try! I have used the plastic squeeze bottle and you know that just does not look all that nice.

Gravy Boats! Can get decent ceramic at a restuarant shop and they class up the joint, and reduce the chance of spilling from a spoon onto that WHITE GOWN!!

I don't understand why you people have to make things so complex...

The ultimate in portion control and if you anything like me and rather not be seen wearing Crocs... this beauty can save you footwork by reaching one of your sauce parched clientele from up to 35 feet. Many models and color schemes as well.

So tell me...What's catering 201? I assume it's the class that follows Catering 101.

I agree, the bowls seem to be the best for a fancier occasion like this wedding I'll be doing this weekend.

Do they make BBQ sauce paint ball ammunition?



P.S. I love my Crocs!

Barbefunkoramaque this is a serious part of the forum.

We call this hijacking and I would appreciate it if you would please keep the subject going by sharing usefull information.

Woodpile is where things are hijacked and thrown way off base in a heartbeat, but this isnt the place.

Being a new member I thought I would pass this information along to you.

Chapter 1. We are good.

Chapter 2. We are good.

Chapter 3. Re-vamping/improving contract as we speak.

Chapter 4. Bingo!

Chapter 5. I play a web developer at my week day gig. But for some reason, I am always too busy to work on my own web site.

Chapter 6. Still listening!

Chapter 7. I try!

Chapter 8. I'm good here, except I really HATE bookkeeping. Quickbooks = Bah Humbug!

Chapter 9. Got a few under our belts.

Chapter 10. Got a few of those under our belts, too.

Chapter 11. I need to go to Green BBQ School!

Chapter 12. I have so far been able to figure out potential bridezillas and pass on their business. Whew!

I obviously still have a few chapters to finish before I pass Catering 201.
