July brings the height of summer gatherings. Pete’s Pig Catering and Barbeque, located at 35 Water Street in Waterville, is ready is serve up their version of Southern Barbeque. Created by grill master, Peter Clark, and his partner and wife, Barbara, Pete’s Pig is bringing the best in pulled pork, ribs, chicken and brisket with Pete’s original barbeque sauces, smoked and grilled to perfection!
Pete’s Pig offers dine in, carry out, and catering options from their Water Street location, located behind Sunrise Bagel and across from the Hathaway Center. They are open Tuesday– Friday from 11AM–6PM.
Peter Clark grew up in the Augusta area. Barbequing became his passion and hobby at an early age. His smile widens when he speaks about how he blends the spices to bring the succulent flavors of pulled pork, ribs, brisket and smokin’ turkey to life.
Pete’s Pig is in its 11th year of business. It began as a roadside barbecue stand. Once Mainers tasted the those delicious barbeque flavors, “The Pig” soon outgrew their location. In 2018 they moved into their 2000 sq. ft. facility with a fully equipped commercial kitchen. Peter is the mastermind with all aspects of the cuisine and Barbara is the “Catering Specialist.” She organizes the orders and arranges all the details for their catering jobs. Her attention to detail allows each event to proceed seamlessly so the host can concentrate on the celebration. Some of the events Pete’s Pig serves are weddings, corporate lunches, picnics, customer appreciation events, graduations, birthdays, anniversaries, and most recently, celebrations of life! Their catering services extend 80 miles from Waterville. Each event is unique and can be personally designed to meet the client’s needs.
During this time of COVID, Peter and Barbara have made some changes. In 2021, Peter and Barbara gave serious thought about how to help families get together and eat safely. They came up with Party Packs, which are three packages that serve 20, 30 and 50 guests. Each package consists of pulled pork, ribs, smoked chicken, baked beans, coleslaw and buns. A 48-hour notice is required and pick-up or drop off services are available. Their food is delicious, all made in a clean commercial kitchen, using COVID guidelines. All you have to do is
enjoy your gathering!
