ISO kosher caterer for BBQ in Virginia

We went with Shalom caterers in Silver Spring (I think they might be calling themselves Signature Catering now). They were wonderful to work with and went out of their way to accommodate whatever crazy requests we came up with (they had their chef test recipes for weeks for the zeppoli my dad had to have before telling us they just wouldn't travel well enough to be up to their standards). They also came all the way out to Luray, VA for us. Our guests who didn't keep kosher thought the food was great, and those who did thought it was phenomenal. :) They actually just catered a family shiva for us, and even years later, I can't recommend them enough.

Our venue situation was a big unique - we used a farm near Shenandoah Natuonal Park. Happy to tell you more if you are interested. Good luck!

Thanks to all so far! We'll update with what we find out in case anyone else finds themselves in this kind of odd situation . . .

Given the chance to put together our wedding as we really want it, my fiance and I are attempting to plan a weekend in a national park culminating in a picnic/BBQ reception. Our biggest hurdle is that we have our hearts set on a location that seems to be near exactly no kosher caterers who can do what we'd like - does anyone know of a catering company in the VA/Washington DC area (or even a bit further afield!) that caters decent BBQ?
