Leaving Los Lansdowne and other pig tales…

21 May

Last night at the Lansdowne, Friday 20th June

We’ve had a blast at our Lansdowne pop-up and like all good things, they must end. Such is the pop-up business. We’ll be there, every Thursday and Friday night up until 20th June. The Lansdowne was so successful in terms of a partnership, that we continued it as long as we could without compromising our other ‘happenings’ coming up this Summer. Huge thank you to everyone that’s supported us by eating our BBQ and shown us plenty of #bbqlove. The Lansdowne is a cracking pub, and has a new chef and new menu, so make sure you keep showing the love to that gem of a hangout. I know we’ll be there as often as possible, this time being fed and watered ourselves!

So what’s next for your Hang Fire girls? Well we have a couple of exciting ones coming up…

25th MAY – BANK HOLIDAY SUNDAY at The Full Moon, Womanby St, Cardiff

Blues, Booze & BBQ AND $5 Shake present Jackrabbit Slims

“A Pulp Fiction inspired shindig. There will be music, there will be dancing, there will be dress-up, there will be good liquor, Five Dollar Shakes and of course there will be Hang Fire’s Big Kahunas!”

Our ‘Big Kahunas’ come in the shape of an awesome BBQ hoagie; 5 Meatballs & Moinks (bacon wrapped, smoked, 21 day aged Welsh Beef meatballs),  swiss cheese, chipotle tomatillo relish, sweet pickled red onion rings, and ‘Marsellus’ Sauce plus some Jackrabbit Slim inspired ‘Nachos Completo’ on the side.

There’ll be an Aussie film crew there filming us for a feature on ‘British Pop Ups’. We’re the Welsh contingent seemingly. We may be serving Big Kahunas, but save the comments about us being ‘big Down Under’!

20th JUNE – LAST NIGHT AT THE LANSDOWNE, Beda Rd, Cardiff

The Lansdowne mark the last night of our pop-up with the start of their awesome beer festival. There’s rumour that there’ll be a marquee out the back, making plenty of room for rocking and rolling after the BBQ. As always, no bookings, and BBQ served 5pm-9pm.  We’ll be cutting loose with all ya’ll after the kitchen closes and slugging the Picklebacks and beers ’til Binkis’ pumps run dry (or ’til she kicks us out!)

We have a few more events coming up over the Summer months, plus we’re working on opening our own ‘village smokery’ at our HQ in Llantwit Major. You’ll be able to buy our BBQ for you to ‘heat at home’ from our teeny tiny old butchers shop,  plus our sauces and maybe a BBQ t-shirt or two. We should be open by September, hopefully before. We’ll keep you posted.

HOW TO MAKE OUR PULLED PORK (AND OTHER PIG TALES ) FROM PLATE LICKED CLEAN BLOG

Cardiff blogger, Plate Licked Clean, came up to our smokehouse and we taught him the dark arts of making proper pulled pork (you know it ain’t really pulled pork unless it’s been smoked slow and low over wood or coals or both). You can read the article here http://theplatelickedclean.blogspot.co.uk/2014/05/a-day-at-office-or-from-pit-to-plate_3.html

As if that wasn’t enough, we gave him our ‘Pig Rub #1’ recipe in case there were any social smokers out there that needed a rub recipe to play with. Anyone that loves to smoke should try and make their own, but if you wanted a base to work from here’s a recipe that will make your smoked porcine taste BBQ pro. Here’s how  http://theplatelickedclean.blogspot.co.uk/2014/05/pig-rub-pulled-pork-recipe-hang-fire.html

That’s all for now folks, we’ve got a busy few months coming up, some street food projects in the pipeline plus we’re working on a more ‘unexpected’ collaborations with other purveyors of fine food and drink and venue owners.

Thank you for your continual love of our BBQ, if you keep on eating, we’ll keep on smokin’!

Sticky, bbq sauce, hugs

    Hi. Heard you on the food programme. Sounds ace! Are you only available via street circus? Do you operate anywhere during rest of the week? Thanks and congrats again.
