We’re excited to announce our new pop-up will be at recently renovated, The Pilot, in Penarth (67 Queen’s Rd, Penarth, Vale of Glamorgan CF64 1DJ). The Pilot team really bowled us over with their passion for great beer, great food and focus on customer service. We can’t wait to work with manager, Phil (he’s a huge BBQ fan, so we’re already on the good foot!).
We’re kicking off proceedings with their American Craft Beer & BBQ beer festival on August Bank Holiday weekend, we’ll be there Friday night and all day Saturday with a taster of our barbecue for those who haven’t tried it yet.
Don’t worry ‘cue lovers, our southern barbecue staples aren’t going anywhere, from ribs to brisket to our pulled pork, but we’re adding a few deep south inspired dishes that we picked up on our soul food pilgrimage. We’ve tried a few of these dishes at our previous events, and they’ve been so popular, that we’ll be making them permanent members on the menu for this pop-up.
We’re at The Pilot on a Thursday night only (5.30pm – 9pm), for 3 months AND (drum roll please…) we are taking bookings (however, not for the August Bank Holiday American Beer BBQ Festival). If you want to make a booking for a Thursday night, 4 September to 27 November, you’ll need call the friendly Pilot team (not us) on 029 2071 0615. Never fear if it’s all booked up, we still have some tables saved for walk ins. So, if the sudden urge for barbecue overcomes you on a particular Thursday, and you haven’t booked, swing by and we’ll do our best to get you fed.
MOTLEY MOVIES PRESENTS ‘THE GOONIES’ with HANG FIRE SMOKEHOUSE
The mobile movie guys, Motley Movies, kindly asked us to feed the cinema goers who will be there to watch one of our most favourite movies, The Goonies, up on the rooftop of Jacobs Market (30 August). There’ll be a whole lotta BBQ sandwiches ‘n’ fixins happening, all inspired by the characters. There’ll be an italian nod to Mama Fratelli, of course, a Truffle Shuffle and even a Baby Ruth inspired dessert. We’ve gone a little over the top, but heck, when else can we make a trailer trash of a sandwich called The Sloth! The tickets are pretty much sold out, but keep an eye out on Motely Movies social media for any returns or folks selling them.
Sam & Shauna
PS Ahem, *cough* did we mention that we had backstage passes to Dolly Parton’s Blue Smoke Tour in Cardiff last month? It helped that we know her drummer, but of course, they only wanted us for our barbecue, so we fed the band and crew after the epic show. They loved it!
