To say we’re passionate about barbecue would be an understatement. We've travelled extensively throughout the south to find the best barbecue and learn its secrets. From the beef brisket of Central Texas, to the tangy pulled pork of the Carolinas, and to the spicy and smoky jerk chicken of Jamaica, we love them all. Our goal is to create dishes that inspire you as much as they inspire us, and to re-define your context of barbecue.
Smoke Signals Barbeque specializes in southern barbecue. What is southern barbecue? It depends where in the south you are. In Central Texas, where beef reigns supreme, you'll find brisket, short ribs and clods often rubbed with nothing but salt and pepper, and cooked over oak wood fires. In Tennessee, you'll find racks upon racks of dry rub spare ribs, while in Kansas you'll find the same cut slathered with a sweet and tangy sauce. In Eastern North Carolina, pork shoulders cooked until they’re soft as butter are accompanied with a chilli vinegar barbeque sauce. And in South Carolina you'll find whole hogs cooked overnight on hot coals.
With barbecue, there is no better. There is only different.
We devote a meticulous level of detail to our barbecue process. First, we hand-select the wood for our fires – to us, it’s as important as any ingredient. Then, we select the best meats, and prepare them perfectly for cooking under low heat for hours in our wood burning pits. Our side dishes are cooked with the finest ingredients and tended to with the utmost care. In the end, our recipe is really very simple: fire, smoke and time.
