    East Orlando new Gem

    This is what East Orlando has been needing for a long time. The Customer service is excellent. The fried Ribs on Saturday will make you want them on Sunday. Chicken and Brisket are smoked to perfection. You can eat the sides as a meal by themselves. Oh, the desserts will have you there on Mondays when they are closed.

    Great tasting food

    Smoky Jay BBQ was amazing. Their food was to die for. Everyone during our wedding had nothing but positive comments about the food and how it tasted amazing. I would recommend Smoky Jay BBQ to anyone that needs catering in the Orlando area and I would hire them again in a heart beat. Thank you Jay for making our wedding and catering experience great.

While completing coursework, I continued planning events and also worked on building networking relationships and gaining more experience in the field. In order to stick to my guns and continue pursuing my dreams, I formally launched Sapphire Elegance Events in 2015.
