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.
NEWS FLASH – Cardiff’s first Craft Soda….
This weekend, we have the annual PIPES Micro Beer Fest at the Printhaus Workshops in Canton. We’ll be launching our new project with Simon from Pipes Brewery to form the ‘Triple Soda Co‘, producing a range of craft sodas made with all natural ingredients. Our opening offering is a zingy Lemon and Ginger Mash soda, which will be available for this weekend’s festival goers to get a first taste. People can enjoy it straight from the soda fountain, or renowned mixologist, Ericka Duffy, will be using it to create some innovative cocktails. Details on when and where it’ll be stocked will be available on our website soon.
