The professional caterers at Bentley's Famous BBQ Pig Roast & Lobstah Bakes travel throughout Massachusetts and southern New Hampshire, leaving the aromas of wood-smoked and steamed lobsters in their wake. They swoop in on events with steamers, table settings, and shuck buckets in hand—and while they usually prepare everything in advance, they also prepare entire spreads on-site. Such is the case with eight-hour whole pig roasts, where all the action revolves around an American-made smoker fittingly dubbed "The Green Monstah." Throughout the day, a traditional brined or Mojo Mojo-style whole pig—roasted in garlic, onions, and citrus—is slow-smoked and then carved fresh and paired with classic Southern sides. The smoker also churns out Bentley's signature barbecue, using applewood and hickory to smoke dry-rubbed beef, pork, and poultry. Alternatively, seafood is the focus of the lobster and clam bakes, which include spreads of steamed hard or soft-shell Maine lobsters and ale-steamed Ipswich clams alongside marinated meats.
