Northamptonshire’s premier open-air feasting event returns in July with a bigger menu and a new home at Franklin’s Gardens.
Smoke Street is a unique collaboration between The Smoke Pit and street food pop-up Bite Street NN, focused on cooking with smoke and fire.
Event organiser Crispin Slee said: “This summer Smoke Street will be bigger and better. The menu is going to be incredible.
“More chefs will be taking part and there will be cooking over open fire pits, smokers, oil drum BBQs and Asado grills."
Among the line-up is James Peck from Burnt Lemon Chefs who specialises in cooking over open flame and will be cooking lamb over an Argentinian-style BBQ.
BBQ legend Steve Mitchell, who runs street food smokehouse Broke 'n Bone, said: “I’m thinking maybe goat or boar cooked over a wood fire. It will be amazing.”
The centre-piece of the show will be The Smoke Pit’s mighty mobile smoker, a fire cage and live fire roasted spit pig.
Smoke Street takes place in the supporter village at Franklin’s Gardens, as part of Bite Street’s Summer of Food Love at the Gardens with back-to-back food pop-ups.
There will be live entertainment and full bar with gin from local distillery Warner’s and cider from Saxby’s in Wellingborough.
The final menus are yet to drop but the line-up is as follows:
- The Smoke Pit cooking up a feast: smoked brisket, chicken and lamb, and whole spit pig
- BBQ legend Steve Mitchell from Broke ‘n Bone with pulled brisket, ribs, goat/boar
- James Peck from Burnt Lemon Chefs, cooking whole lamb over an open fire pit
- Argentinian Asador Matias from Banquet 1414 barbecuing the tastiest chicken thighs and roasting rump steak over wood (Sat and Sun only)
