Hey y’all,

It’s all happening Hang Fire stylie. Hope you’re having a great summer. We’ve been out and about doing book signings and demos, as well as feeding over 16,000 meat-lovers in our beloved Barry. 

We’ve been swapping books with Dawn French at Port Eliot Festival and learning the way of Spit Beef with DJ BBQ at The Big Grill in Dublin. Exciting times for all things outdoor cooking. 

We were absolutely thrilled to be part of the Summer Special of Countryfile. Catch us smoking up a storm on Jacksons Bay:

Well Howdy….. 

It’s about time we said a huge thanks to each and everyone of you meat-lovers who’ve supported us through the first few months at the Hang Fire Southern Kitchen in our beloved Barry. We have fed over 6,000 of you since opening and the response has been overwhelming. Couldn’t have done it with the support of the Hang Fire Faithful. 


The Hang Fire Cookbook is officially launched and in good old fashioned Hang Fire style we had a massive party. It’s been an honour and privilege to be signing your books and administering the free hug which comes with every single copy. We are inspired by the number of people buying smokers and giving Slow & Low a go!

And finally – we need your help! We would be absolutely thrilled if you voted for us in the Observer Food Monthly Awards. We’d love to represent Wales in the New Cook Book category. The closing deadline is 1st July, so please get to voting people! Link is here…

We will still be doing festivals and events this year, so keep you eyes peeled. Who knows where we might see each other again!

Thanks y’all for supporting our little business.

The Hang Fire BBQ Cook Book is a-comin’

23 Sep

Great news fellow barbecue fanatics, we’ve recently secured a publishing deal with Quadrille, a major, international publisher. We’ve completed the first draft already and will be finalising the photoshoots and last edits soon. We’re looking at a release in May 2016.
In our book, we’ll show you how we built our trailer smoker, tips on converting any grill into a home smoker, take you though our road trip where we went coast-to-coast and, of course, tons of recipes to try at home. We hope you’ll enjoy this book, we’ll be releasing sneak previews and tasters from the book early next year. We’ll keep you posted as to when and where you can buy a copy.

Here’s what our press office had to say about it:

Hot out the smoker, Hang Fire Smokehouse announce cook book deal
They have been crowned ‘Best Street Food’ by the BBC, were the first to bring slow and low BBQ to Wales, launched Wales’ first craft soda, fed international celebrities and served thousands of plates of American style barbecue at events up and down the country, but things just got bigger for Hang Fire Smokehouse, as they announce a brand new cook book for 2016.

The book will tell the story of their journey across America, including pictures and tales of their adventures, how do build your own smoker, detailed knowledge about grilling and smoking and will contain over 100 the recipes. The book is due for release in spring of next year.

Shauna Guinn, of Hang Fire said: “We were approached by publishers, Quadrille back in May following our win at the BBCR4 Food Awards and have been working on the book ever since. We are so pleased to finally be able to share our news – it’s been hard to keep it quiet!”

“The book is going to be jammed pack with everything you need to know about smoking at home. We can’t wait to share what we’ve learnt with everyone.”

The announcement was made over the weekend during their sell out  ‘Alchemy of BBQ’ Masterclass at Abergavenny Food Festival. Tickets for their masterclass were the first to go and sold out in just 24hrs.

Partner, Samantha Evans added: “The food festival seemed like the perfect place to make the announcement. We delivered our masterclass to an audience made up of people who were really keen to dive into the world of slow and low and folks that have supported us from the beginning. It seemed right for those to be the first people to know.”

Sarah Lavelle, the publisher from Quadrille working with the girls, said: “We were fascinated by Sam and Shauna’s American adventure. They are infectiously passionate about what they do and hugely knowledgeable about their craft, so we are delighted to help them pass on their stories and recipes to fans, old and soon to be new.”

A smokin’ Summer ahead…

14 Jul

We’ve been busy little smokers since Street Food Circus had it’s grand finale on 30th June.It was an amazing 2 months seeing literally thousands of hungry folks passing through the circus every night. Felt like a mini festival every weekend. Thank you to everyone that came down and supported us by eating our ‘cue, making us laugh, bought us some beers and had a dance with us!

Not one to rest on our expanding laurels, we’ve been well and truly humbled at Kate Humble’s Dig Day Out Festival on 4th July. It was a glorious day with beautiful sunshine. There were loads of outdoor cooking demos, music by The Noses and local legends, The Brwmys and Gareth Malone popped by and got us all in full voice!

We were honoured to be selected as judges at a round of ‘King of the Grill ‘at the UK’s biggest BBQ competition, Grillstock, in Bristol 11-12 July. What an awesome event if you’re a fan of outdoor cooking and great music. The competition teams work their socks off all year round to compete to the prize of Grand Champion and the opportunity to compete at the KCBS American Royal, the worlds biggest BBQ competition, Kansas, in October. The winning team are the unstoppable, the mighty Bunch of Swines. They make some of the best BBQ we’ve tasted, top people and are deserved champions.

Rubbing shoulders with the chefs and restauraneurs we’ve loved from t’telly was a surreal experience at best.

Hang Fire Sam was also on BBC Radio Wales Jamie Owens show this Sunday, talking all things BBQ, well mainly trying to talk about smoking, but Jamie though we grilled! Luckily we brought samples of our wares (and our beer) to clairfy the difference! We’re on the last half hour. Listen here:  http://www.bbc.co.uk/programmes/b05t763m#auto
