Smokestak, East London’s barbecue restaurant from chef and founder David Carter, will be firing up the wood-fired smoker for Valentine’s Day and offering two special DIY meal kits for nationwide delivery on Friday 12 February.
Available to pre-order from the 18th January, the box for two features rhubarb fizz cocktails to start, followed by salt baked beetroot, goat cheese, toasted hazelnuts; 1 pound of 15 hour beef brisket with pickled red chilli and 1 pound of pulled pork with mustard barbecue sauce and pickled cucumber. Sides include two jacket potatoes with mustard rarebit and ginger and green chilli slaw.
For something sweet to finish, there is Smokestak’s cult favourite sticky toffee pudding with salted caramel. For those looking for something a little extra, a premium box will include all of the above plus smoked cod roe with hand-pressed corn tortillas; purple sprouting broccoli with salsa rossa and a bottle of Gran Cerdo Tinto Rioja.
All meat has been carefully sourced from long-standing suppliers Philip Warren Butchers and Swaledale, before being gently smoked over kiln-dried English oak for up to 15 hours in David’s Ole Hickory wood-fired smoker imported from the barbecue heartland of Cape Girardeau, Missouri.
Delivered direct to homes via overnight courier, all meat will be fully-smoked / cooked before being chilled and vacuum-packed for dispatch nationwide in a thermally insulated box. Reheat and assembly instructions are included in each box, which can then be enjoyed at leisure over the weekend.
Valentine’s Day special boxes are £75 (shipping cost excluded) and £115 (shipping cost included), available for pre-order now via smokestakshop.co.uk. Last orders on Wednesday 10 February at 6pm.
