Hungry Hog BBQ Essex Hog Roast Company
Established in 2015 in Essex, we continue to push the boundaries and possibilities in outside catering, delivering personalised and bespoke packages that mean something to you.
With a reputation that stands for substance, quality, enthusiasm, and a unique style, Hungry Hog BBQ is a true champion of an authentic Essex based food company.
We work tirelessly to use quality, local and seasonal produce in all aspects of our menus.
We have built close relationships with Essex’s best specialist rare breed meat farmers. It means we don’t just talk about local produce, we source it, we visit it, we feed it and we cook it.
We are a knowledgeable and helpful team of professionals. We have close relationships with amazing venues, marquee and tipi providers, as well as having extensive experience working within the industry.
We are skilled in actively listening to clients and guiding them through the complexities of outside event planning, providing not only culinary expertise but we also excel in organisational skills and an understanding of how important it is for your food to fit in with your event as a whole experience. We can help you achieve your unique event and dining experience of your dreams.
We only employ brilliant, friendly and inspirational people to share our enthusiasm and love of food. At our heart is a strong and talented group of chefs who, with their loyal core team and hand-picked front of house experts, share one common goal; to deliver the food and service for your event, the way you want it.
Head chef and owner Chris Greenwood has experience in many fine dining establishments all over the world, even as far as Australia. The idea behind the company was to bring good quality, locally sourced produce to the customer with a unique twist. The company holds firm to its core values of bringing the freshest ingredients to your plate. Such as the free range pigs we use from selected Essex farms and we even go as far as choosing the best quality apples for our famous apple sauce. No expense is spared to provide you with the best quality produce.
"I believe it’s an honour to be part of people’s events, particularly weddings, and I become personally invested in making sure we get it right. I am so proud of The Hungry Hog BBQ team."
From a love of pigs and slow smoked meat, Chris' life-long passion for food has helped develop the company from a pot and pan, to one of the most well regarded and reputable catering companies in Essex. Passion, enthusiasm and vision push Chris and the team to where nothing short of excellence is acceptable.
I cannot recommend Hungry Hog BBQ highly enough; the food was fantastic and the service impeccable. Really looking forward to seeing the team back on the farm soon!

The ‘sexiest’ roasting Joints. Serve on sharing boards.
Big and brash. Well aged and marbled.
Our favourite, rare breed = lovely fat content.

Our butchers make us the finest flavoured sausages, from Lamb & rosemary to beef & Guinness we have you covered!
Some say money can't buy happiness...well you haven't tried our barbecued rack of lamb!
