Pulled pork has been on top of our favourite eats ever since we started the club in 2009. Since then we’ve sampled this porky delight at venues across England and the USA. Despite this, we reckon that some of the best barbecue around is being dished up right on our doorstep, here in Wales.
The ladies at Hang Fire Smokehouse have been serving up their “southern style barbecue” for about a year now, mainly at The Canadian pub in Splott, but also at various pop up stalls and events.
We caught up with Hang Fire at two of their most recent events. Firstly their Blues, Brews & BBQ night at The Full Moon, serving up hot, smokey racks of ribs with American beers and fine grain liquor. Secondly at The Canadian pub, their last event held there (and The Sandwich Club’s unofficial works Christmas party), saw the full Hang Fire menu being devoured, including several sides of burnt ends!
Both occasions have been a true delight and it’s so exciting to finally have someone serving up great barbecue food in Cardiff, even more so given that it puts some bigger names in bigger cities to shame.
We’ll be bringing you a full write up of Hang Fire when they reopen at their new home The Landsdowne pub in February. Until then catch up with their story so far on their website here.
