RHODES BBQ CATERING INFORMATION

At Rhodes Barbeque Smokehouse, we are dedicated to serving you the best quality healthy, mouth watering American style smoked cuisine. All our meat are specially selected and carefully cooked to give you, the very best real barbeque.

In our quest for the perfect barbeque, we have travelled through America’s traditional regions of wood fired cooking, from the Deep South to the Midwestern plains and beyond.

We cook “slow and low” this means slow cooking over long hours, at low temperature using seasoned dry fruit and nut woods like ash, apple, cherry and hickory. The result of this cooking method is our barbecue’s distinct and unique smoke flavor taste, aroma, colour and texture. This cannot be obtained any other way.

Definition: Barbeque

“a savory and succulent slab of meat that has been cooked with wood smoke and heat at medium-low temperatures for an extended period of time until it is at once perfectly tender and exceedingly juicy and brimming with flavor.” .

Frequently Asked Questions

WHAT IS TRADITIONAL AMERICAN REAL PIT BARBEQUE?

The word Barbeque as it is understood by most people means a backyard grill used to grill hamburgers and hotdogs and vegetables over direct heat supplied by gas or charcoal briquettes. To grill in this manner is barbeque to most folks. This process is quick, but it does little to enhance the flavor or tenderize the meat. Grilled meat is not barbeque.

American Pit Barbeque is an entirely different cooking method. Real pit barbeque is when you cook savory and succulent slabs of meat “Low and Slow”. This means the meat is seasoned and cooked in an enclosed smoker at low temperatures, usually in the 200 to 275 degree range using indirect heat that is produced by slow burning hardwood. The meat is both smoked and cooked at the same time. This very slow magical process is an art form. It requires patience, understanding and time. It breaks down the connective tissues of the meat and turns tough large cuts into the most delicious tender food. Good barbeque is almost always cooked well done. We cook our briskets and pork shoulder for up to 14 hours or more. This is what produces that unique flavor and tenderness you taste in our meats.

Barbeque is a true American original with its roots in the south. But its popularity has grown over the years as more people discovery its unique taste and qualities. We are very proud to be in the forefront of introducing this kind of food to the U.K. and Europe.


THE MEANING OF THE PINK SMOKE RING

One way to positively identify real pit barbeque is by the “Smoke Ring”. This is the dark pink ring that shows on the outside edges of meat cooked in a smoker pit. Sometimes, smaller cuts of meat like ribs or chicken will be pinkish all the way to the bone. When you see that “Smoke Ring” you are eating real pit barbeque.
