SMOKIN YANKEES BBQ BELFAST
Chief Cook Michael Duffy is addicted to BBQ. There are lots like him all around the world. Happily, Northern Ireland aficionados can buy their BBQ at their street food stall/truck and/or buy their sauces. He is one of a team which includes Conor Dawson and Jim Moore.
They recently released the first of their Smokin Yankees Sauces – Apple and Whiskey BBQ. It is currently being stocked in seven stores in Northern Ireland including the Meat Merchant in Moira, Arcadia on the Lisburn road, indie fud in comber, Sawers in Belfast and all Hillmount Garden centres. This particular sauce was recently selected for the finals of the 2018 Blas na hEireann Irish Food Awards and is regularly enjoyed by BBQ aficionados in Britain, US and as far away as Australia!!
Local suppliers include Hannan meats, Broighter Gold and they also use the PGI status Armagh Bramley apples in their recipes.
If you fancy trying their Outside Catering, think 12 hour hickory smoked pulled pork, 15 hour oak smoked beef brisket, or if you’re in a hurry Glenarm Shorthorn burgers or even their own recipe Smokin Yankee hotdogs, with sides such as Chilli, smoked pit beans and bacon drizzled Mac and cheese – you’re onto a winner with whatever you choose.
They have also put their skills in action to cater for multiple large scale charity BBQ’s for various church, community and sporting organisations, the largest logistically was for 600 people!
They have also been known to enter the odd international BBQ competition! ☺ All-Ireland Pit Master Champions twice, doncha know, as well as travelling to both the Jack Daniels world invitational BBQ in Lynchburg Tennessee and the World series of BBQ at the American Royal in Kansas city, where they competed alongside the cream of world BBQ!
