Family, Friends, Tradition and Good Food

These are the things that barbecue mean to us

 Ron and Alberta Stevens have been married for over 51 years now, we moved from south Florida 4 years ago to be near our grandchildren. We got our start in barbecue at some smaller BBQ cook offs in Florida. We had a lot of success, won a lot of awards, and progressed to some of the larger BBQ contests all over the south. Along the way, we developed our own spice rubs, and sauces. While still holding true to the old ways of southern style barbecue, low and slow.

 Ron retired from his business of being a bass fishing guide, and Alberta from her job at a bank. Needing something to do, and our love of barbecue, we started competing in BBQ contests in California, and opened a catering business. We had a lot of success, we won Best Ribs at the California Beer Festival in Ventura, then the next year followed it up with a Grand Champion award the next year.

 We decided to share our type of barbecue with our new friends and family out here in California with Sunrise BBQ and Catering. We can be found at some local Farmers Markets, Community events, and Corporate events. We have catered weddings as large as 300 people, and small parties with only a few guests. Nothing makes us feel better than when someone comes back and tells us:

“That was some of the best BBQ I have ever eaten”

And even better when they come back for more and bring their friends.

We use only the highest quality meats and products in everything we do, there is no room for compromise. We continue to improve our products, and adding new ones. We have been thrilled by the response to our food and our catering operation.

 The journey continues, and we hope we can see you and serve you along the way .
