Smoke BBQ, Sheffield

The home of barbequed mouth-watering meat, as well as amazing sides and a lot of other tasty stuff! If you’re looking for somewhere in Sheffield to feast on American BBQ-style food, then choose here. An independent but popular restaurant based in Sheffield city centre, serving quality food and drinks.

Our recent visit to Smoke BBQ was thoroughly enjoyed indeed! As with a lot of the places I have eaten at recently, this restaurant was on the long and growing list of places to eat and review in Sheffield. We booked a table on this particular evening as part of last week’s Dine Sheffield Restaurant Week, an event to encourage more people to eat out in the city.

The food here is very much American-style diner & BBQ; smoked and barbequed/grilled meat, stacked burgers, fries, onions, cornbreads, milkshakes and more; similar to the restaurant chain everyone has heard of beginning with an R… However Smoke BBQ is an independent restaurant to Sheffield, which gives it a statement and just that extra added quality to the food in our experience.

We found it tough to narrow down what we wanted to order as there were so many tasty-sounding things. The menu offers a selection of “Plates” to choose from which is basically a choice of meat (from Brisket or Pulled Pork to Hot Link Sausage, Pork Belly & more) served with twice-cooked fries and another regular side of your choice for example; Pickled Slaw, Smoked Pit Beans, Crispy Onion Strings etc. Or you can build your own plate with TWO meats! There is also a Burgers, Buns and Bowls section to the menu offering (you guessed it) stacked burgers, hot dogs and chilli! So much meat, so many amazing sounding things!!!

We finally settled on;

BRISKET PLATE £17 – Brisket, burnt ends & brisket hash, spiced & rubbed, then smoked for up to 18 hours. Served with twice-cooked chips and I went for the Crispy Onion Strings. Oh my god the brisket was sooooooo good. Cooked perfectly and lots of it, the burnt ends smothered in a sweet BBQ sauce. The hash was something different which I really enjoyed although all things together beat me as there was so much! A really good choice that I was very pleased with.

BUILD-YOUR-OWN £17 – Hot Link Sausage & 1/2 Baby Ribs *Served with twice-cooked chips and a side of coleslaw. Again the meat was insane. The ribs were really tender and melted in your mouth, really satisfying. The sausage was made really well, it was gorgeously crisp on the outside and was similar to chorizo with a kick to it.

We washed these meals down (slowly haha) with a pint of Smoke Red lager.

The service was faultless during our visit and we weren’t waiting that long for food to arrive thank god as we were starrrrrrrrving! Prices aren’t bad either for the amount of food and the quality that you get. I would definitely return to Smoke and recommend this to any BBQ / meat lovers, suitable for all the family!
