Who's Your Daddy...
Matt James - Head Honcho
Madison dad, aka "Daddy Matty", has been passionate about cooking for his friends and family, and smoking a brisket or a rack of ribs brings him pure joy. Lucky for the rest of us, he expanded from backyard barbecuing to start Daddy Matty's BBQ and Catering, where Everbody Eats!
BIANCA SHALAKHO - BBQ AMBASSADOR
Fondly known as "B" by her fellow BBQ-ers, Bianca has partnered with Daddy Matty, to bring woman power and her jill-of-all trades skills to the team. Cooking, marketing, event planning, and making people happy- she does it all- that's why she really is the BBQ Ambassador!
Our family and friends have supported us all the way. Our bbq is family friendly, neighbor-tested-and-approved! Daddy Matty doesn't have to be your daddy for you to reap the bbq benefits, but in this case, he just so happens to be the pit chief of this fine-looking crew, pictured here at smoker pickup day!
Inspired by the kindness in our community we started Daddy Matty’s BBQ with a purpose: Feed our Community and help our Neighbors. Our Motto “Everybody Eats” captures our commitment to sharing. In New Jersey a quarter of our neighbors must choose between food and other essential costs. 1 in 7 struggle with hunger, a third of which are children. These statistics are heartbreaking but more importantly, they are our motivation.
Every purchase you make helps to put a meal on your neighbor’s plate. Since 2014 we’ve provided thousands of meals through our partnership with the Morris County Interfaith Food Pantry and we will continue to find ways to get food to our neighbors who need it most!

FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS
What style of BBQ are you making?
Gypsy style. We smoke our meats over local woods according to what tastes right. We don't want to be tied down to one style or flavor profile when there are so many delicious possibilities.
"Everybody Eats" - What’s that all about?
Just that - For every purchase you make from Daddy Matty's we'll donate meals to our neighbors who need them through our partnership with The Morris County Interfaith Food Pantry. We've donated thousands of meals to date and we're always looking for more ways to share.
We require a 20% deposit
For pickup and delivery, we require a 48-hour cancellation notice.
When to book?
For pick-up and delivery booking 3-5 days before your next event is appreciated, but the more notice we have - the better.
Changes to an order
We are happy to take any changes during office hours with at least a 24-hour notice.
What kind of parties do you cater?
Fun ones! We'll cook for your family or for your entire town. We'll deliver food to you or we'll bring our smokers over to your place - or your festival, block party, shindig, hoedown, whatever! Any size party by any name - we can do it.
When is a butt not a butt?
Surprise! Pork butt doesn't come from a pig's butt! The butt is the upper shoulder of the hog. It's a big muscle with plenty of connective tissue and fat that breaks down when cooked slow and low (That is the tempo!!). The meat bastes while it cooks to create a sweet, succulent, moist interior that's the perfect complement to the smoky bark on the outside. Who's getting hungry?
Why is your sauce so awesome?
Hey, thanks for the compliment!! We blister peppers with other great tasting vegetables, premium spices and a little bit of sweet stuff and puree it. That's it! We don't stretch our sauce with cheap fillers or watery nonsense.
Should I trust a skinny pitmaster?
Nope. Daddy Matty is committed to sacrificing his pursuit of abs in the name of recipe development and flavor. You're welcome!
Delicious, that's what it is. Brisket is a cut of beef that comes from the breast of cattle (generally, a steer. Cows are girls, they give us milk - and calves - thanks, cows!). Brisket becomes tender only after long, slow cooking - we cook ours at least 12 hours. There is a flat, lean side and a point, or fatty side. Live a little - go for at least some of the fatty side; it's smoky, moist and juicy.
New Mexico Green Chili? Huh??
It's an awesome pork based stew made with a ton of roasted Hatch green chile peppers. It's spicy, for sure, but a great, addictive spicy (if you're into that type of thing).
Do you offer anything that's gluten free or vegetarian? Nut free?
Everything is gluten free except for our mac & cheese (that's a bummer, sorry), cornbread and bourbon bread pudding (that one stings too).
- We can make a gluten free version of our New Mexico green chili, hurray!
- Our Mac & cheese, pickled veg and watermelon salad are vegetarian.
- We will make anything you’d like us to try. Just ask!
- Daddy Matty is allergic to tree nuts, therefore, since he can't test it, you can't taste it. We don't currently offer anything made with peanuts.
Don't feel like cooking? Don't worry- we do!
