Bringing over 20 years of BBQ experience to the Shenandoah Valley of Virginia…and BEYOND!

Northern Virginia, Central Virginia, Southern Virginia, Richmond Metro, Maryland and West Virginia.

Valley Pig Pickin’, LLC is a locally owned catering service located in Woodstock, VA that specializes in on-site “whole hog” barbecues…known as pig pickin’s in North Carolina.

Josh Holloman, manager and pit master, can also provide barbecued pork ribs, loins, shoulders and butts, half hogs, beef brisket, beef roasts, prime ribs, smoked chicken, turkey, whole lambs or roasts AND MORE.  If it flys, swims or walks, we can BBQ it!

Valley Pig Pickin’, LLC catering-eventOur sauces are all home-style from recipes handed down from family and tweaked by Josh to make a perfectly balanced sauce between hot peppers, vinegar and sweetness. We offer a couple of varieties to please multiple tastes.

Valley Pig Pickin’ gets its name from the traditional way whole hog BBQ is served in North Carolina, Josh’s home state. Pig roasts, hog roasts and pig pulls are other names for what is called a pig pickin’ in North Carolina.

When Josh moved to the Shenandoah Valley, he could not find BBQ the way he thought it should taste and be served…hand pulled with a vinegar based sauce. To make a short story even shorter, he decided to offer his experience cooking whole hog BBQ as a service to the people of the Shenandoah Valley.

Just wanted to say thanks for the easy encounter with VPP!
We had a very successful party thanks to you and Bennett, our one man pit crew. He did an outstanding job in every aspect. Could not have asked for more.
Pig, burgers and dogs were perfect.

Oct 2015 Wedding Event in Washington DC

We were so happy with our event, and you guys helped make it a most wonderful day. The food was outstanding – everyone raved about it. I would be happy to refer others to your business!


Hey Josh- just following up to thank you for helping me out last Saturday- the party was a huge success, in large part thanks to your outfit 🙂 We look forward to the party at my parent’s barn as well- you guys do such a great job!

The crew and food were absolutely fantastic at the wedding celebration at Zion Springs this past weekend, Josh! We couldn’t be happier. 5 stars!

This was the most amazing food ever at ANY catered event I’ve been to. My daughter found this business online, had immediately professional and prompt response, arranged for a tasting and secured the reservation for her special day. They traveled to Loudoun County without hesitation…. They come on site early the day of the wedding and spend the entire day cooking/smoking absolutely delicious food! We had brisket (best this side of Texas!), pulled pork and chicken, mashed potatoes, salad, corn on the cob and some really amazing mac n cheese -(smoked!). The flavors truly caused everyone to stop and comment on how excellent it was! The caterers were friendly, efficient and on time to the minute! The price was absolutely perfect and we had plenty of left overs – even with almost everyone showing up for the wedding! We HIGHLY recommend this company!

And the food was some of the best I can recall at a wedding. Valley Pig Pickin’ catered the event and brought a whole smoked lamb. I had never had lamb done this way, and it’s unbelieveable. It was basically like a pig pickin’ but with a lamb that was sliced instead of pulled. It kind of made this Virginia boy wonder why we’ve been messing around with pork all of these years. The sides were great too, though I hope to never know the nutrition content of the mashed potatoes.

Thanks again for another great dinner, just like last year. Everyone really enjoyed the BBQ and sides again and many told us so spontaneously. The fact that you prepare on site, treating us to that delicious cooking odor, is an added treat to our guests. Of particular importance to me is the fact that I can count on you to be there with everything set up and ready on time. Being on schedule is important as we have a full program to conduct. All I have to do is schedule Valley Pig Pickin’ and the food for the event is taken care of. We will be setting the date for next year’s annual event soon and will again book Valley Pig Pickin’ a year in advance. Thanks again.

Hey Josh,
What an incredible job you guys did for us. The pork and chicken were outstanding as were all of the sides. Your presentation, appearance, equipment were all top notch. I have been cooking BBQ for over thirty years and as you know owned and operated my own business at Lake Anna. I know the difference between bad, just ok, pretty good and really great BBQ. You guys should cook in competition because you cook really great BBQ. I would gladly recommend you to anyone. Please feel free to use me as a reference.

Sincere Thanks,
Founders Day Co-Chairman
