The Blues Kitchen Brixton will transform into a BBQ-lover’s heaven with The Big Smoke, a festival devoted to ribs.

What to Expect

Get ready as The Blues Kitchen gets bigger, better and smokier. Expect a smokin’, juicy, fire pit serving ribs from some of the world’s most celebrated pitmasters.

Neil Rankin – Tuesday 25 April: Neil Rankin will be at the helm for a feast of all things meaty. Former Pitt Co and Smokehouse chef and recently on a high from his newly opened BBQ joint Temper, will be bringing his expertise to Brixton.

Wayne Mueller – Wednesday 26 April: Flying in from the states will be Wayne Mueller, owner of the Texan “cathedral of smoke” Louie Mueller Barbecue. Mueller has become a Barbecue missionary, smoking ribs across the US, Japan and Europe, whilst running his grandfather’s Texas Barbecue house.

DJ BBQ – Thursday 27 April: From one BBQ legend to another, DJ BBQ is returning for another year of racks, stacks and ribs. The man behind The Blues Kitchen’s custom Rib Fest smoker will be cooking up a meat storm to the backing music of folk-infused blues.

The Big Smoke will also offer an opportunity to enjoy world-class blues, roots and soul artists playing live every night.

Each smoky stack of ribs will be priced at £15, running alongside The Blues Kitchen’s southern sides and appetizers menu.
