Smokin' Joe's...

Hey everyone

I'm a massive fan of American barbecue food - as y'all will remember from my ravings in {this post} when I discovered {The Perfect American Restaurant} not so long ago!

Well, a couple of weeks back a new restaurant opened in the next village over from mine (how much of a country bumpkin do I sound saying that?! Haha!) and imagine my excitement when it was revealed to be an American Smokehouse!!

Needless to say I was super excited and couldn't wait to get my mitts on the menu and try it out!

So, today (to finish off a lovely girly shopping trip with Ma as a late lunch) I'm sharing that wonderful experience with y'all...

We perused the menu for quite a while - it's not extensive (apart from the burgers and dogs section!) but everything sounds so good that we just couldn't decide!

Anyone who knows me, knows my obsession for pulled pork - I'm forever on the search for the perfect taste! So obviously I made sure that we chose the pulled pork and cheese nachos to share as a starter. 

What I was most surprised about was the fact that the nachos were handmade - I thought that was a really lovely touch that most restaurants overlook - they were certainly more tasty than the usual ones I receive when I order nachos!

Now, I'm a massive fan of the pulled pork from {Hickory's} - it's absolutely stunning! - and this one was sadly not in the same league. I'm not saying that I didn't enjoy it, because I really did, it's just that it's not comparable to the one from Hickory's. This one is a lot less smoke-y and barbecue-y (which I like!), plus the pork from Smokin' Joe's is shredded less and tastes a lot more meaty.

I will definitely be ordering this again next time!

Okay, now onto the main event - please prepare yourself...

I love how it's presented - no fuss and no frills - letting the food speak for itself - just how I like my burgers to come!

I have to acknowledge the fact that the fried were served in a little bucket - how cute?!

I feel like the burger deserved it's own shot - just look at that beauty!

I (after much deliberation) went for the 'Juicy Lucy' (what a name - and it totally lived up to it!) - two delicious melt-in-the-mouth beef patties that had a delightful little surprise contained inside them...

It was only a big hunk of delectable molten cheese-y goodness!

Now, that's the kind of surprise I like!

Sadly (and unsurprisingly!) after all of that I couldn't fit in even so much as a morsel of dessert - which is a shame because I had my eye on trying their Mississippi Mud Pie. 

Alas, I suppose that means I shall just have to go back for another visit to try it! Along with some more of their pulled pork and possibly a chilli dog....my mouth is watering already!

So there we have it, my own little slice of American Smokehouse Barbecue food right on my door step! How lucky am I?!
