The sun was shining and it was the right time to head off down to the Temple Quay market in Bristol.
Smoke Catering were there with their big smoker and their choice of Texan style smoked meats. There was beef brisket and pulled pork.
After very little thinking time I went with the BBQ Box from the top of the menu. The box contained homemade slaw, garlic mash and beans. On top of the box was some smoked beef brisket, smoked beef rib and a smoked pork and chilli sausage.
As it was such a lovely day, the place to eat this was in Harratz Place on the quayside.
I have had their food before, and the slaw, mash and beans were just as nice as they were the last time I had them. The mash was smooth and creamy with a hint of garlic, no bitterness or harshness. The slaw was fresh and crunchy. The beans spicy and full of flavour. The smoked beef brisket was tender and delicious, it was melt in the mouth. I like the tender beef and the crunch of the barbecued outside.
The beef rib was nice, only a small slice, and I would liked to have more of this. The sausage was meaty and tasty, the chilli enhanced the flavour and didn’t overpower.
It was more than I usually spend on lunch and I think for the price I would have liked a slightly bigger portion of the barbecued meat.
Overall this was a really nice lunch.
