CountryWoodSmoke Backyard BBQ Pop Up

Well I’ve been writing this little blog for a whole year now, so I wanted to do something a little bit special to celebrate, so I thought I’d host a Backyard BBQ pop up and invited a few local food producers who have inspired me, and a few friends for an evening of outdoor cooking.

My new outdoor cooking and dining den came in most useful due to the terrible weather. I’d planned a menu that would give me time to spend with my guests and not be slaving over a hot BBQ.

So we enjoyed home made Rosemary and Sea Salt Focaccia with rapeseed oil and chive flower vinegar to dip in. My special bourbon laced CountrywoodSmoke Chilli. Apple and Maple smoked Pulled Pork in a roll with my rainbow slaw. Some wonderful flower salad leaves from Maddocks Farm, and my speciality Chilli Chocolate cake with clotted cream.

A fab evening, celebrating outdoor cooking and local produce.

  2. That looks fabulous! I just made and posted my indoor oven-barbecued pulled pork because my current outdoor grill is not up to the task. Hope to remedy that situation in 2013. I love making foccacia, and rolls for pulled pork sandwiches. That chili and salad look like works of art!

  6. Thank you Marcus & Lisa for hosting such a fabulous evening. I’m very impressed with my first ‘pop up’. Perfect combination of amazing food, great company & relaxed foodie chat. I forgot to tell the kids about the apple core fetish and jam jar eccentricity – your legendary status can only improve!

    • Thanks Cecilia, my wife had the board made for me, but you could make one with some blackboard paint, a bit of wood and some rope. It’s nice to show people what they will be eating.
      Cheers
