After location and theme are selected, the planning process moves to menu selection. The first (and hardest) step is choosing protein. Tequila Sheila features classic slow smoked items such as Pork Shoulder, Beef Brisket, Pork Ribs, Chicken, and Sausage. Our award winning ribs and sausage are definite favorites designed to warm the soul. We recommend a combination of three meats. Ribs, Sausage, and Chicken or Brisket, Ribs, and Sausage are favored combinations.
Tequila Sheila can also turn up the heat and smoke roast crowd favorites: Prime Rib of Beef, Rack of Pork, Leg of Lamb, Strip Loin of Beef, or Rack of Lamb. These “big meat” selections are trimmed and prepared with unique rubs to enhance their great flavor.
For our beef classics – Prime Rib and Strip Loin – you can select our salt / pepper / garlic / oregano rub or our South American Chimichurri rub.
Our lamb entrees are enhanced by a lemon, garlic, rosemary rub that is complemented during service with a mint chimichurri sauce.
For our pork entrées, we utilize a salt / pepper / sugar / chili / onion / garlic rub that combines well with the marbling of the pork.
Our smoked chicken is rubbed with a salt / sugar / cayenne rub to provide a little heat with the smoke. Our Alabama Thunder white sauce provides the finishing touch on our “soon to be famous” smoked bird!
Tequila Sheila’s side items are designed to match your protein selection. Our potato salad features thin sliced al dente red potatoes mixed with our lemon – caper – parsley dressing. Our Texican baked beans offer a new spin on an old favorite with an alternate bean type as well as semi-secret additive! For a colder evening, we offer a hot potato mash featuring a warm cheesy “twice-baked potato” feel. Tequila Sheila’s slaw is designed to provide a textural contrast to the tender meat being served, and we use a little vinegar to counter the smoky flavors of the BBQ.
To complement our “big meat” classics, Tequila Sheila recommends our truffled garlic mash potatoes and our de-constructed wedge salad and homemade blue cheese dressing, cherry heirloom tomatoes, and bacon crumbles.
Tequila Sheila loves to work with any type of protein from land or sea as well as any vegetable. If you have a specific menu in mind, we would love to provide it.
