Smokey’s BBQ @ Joo Chiat Place

We’ve been here quite a few times and I have never posted and I really do not know why I have not. Truly not intentional. So, today I fix that post our incredible lunch – a monster lunch it has to be said. One that left us all, including #1 in a state of food coma. But a good coma nonetheless. The food was epic and it really is worth a call out. This is a must-visit if you’re noodles or hawker‘s head is off-kilter and you just desire Western. And this is about as Western as it gets as it is like eating in the USA – and they do that intentionally.

As you know I like to hear from them. So, let’s hear from them;

“Using only US beef, we make the best brisket, short ribs, and classic American burgers on the island.

If you’re looking for authentic American BBQ, Smokey’s has you covered! Using our 5 purpose-built smokers imported from the US, we slow roast (sometimes up to 20+ hours!!) our selection of meats using our secret blend of seasoning and
imported wood chips leaving the meat tender and bursting with flavour.

What you are about to enjoy took several years to create. We paid careful attention to quality and the authentic flavours of true American BBQ, from making our own BBQ sauce, dressings and seasonings, to creating our own proprietary smoking process. It took a couple more years to perfect and create the Smokey’s brand.

Our smoke wood chips, cooking BBQ smoking equipment, décor and owner are all imported from the USA. We hope you enjoy the food and dining experience we’ve created for you.”

Let’s be having you then Smokey’s… Smokey’s BBQ Review

Sad to say though I am going to diss the Beef Brisket Combo. A little tough and dry guys – especially when you compare it to your photo on your website. Sorry to call that out on the 1st photo of today’s lunch, but the BBQ sauce is a holy shit killer sauce. It is an off-the-charts good sauce. One day I must steal that recipe, it really is so very good.

See what I mean? Here is the website photo. Moist, juicy and glistening. Not what we got today. But still the taste today was great.

And now the goals start getting kicked with my next two orders. Up 1st is this beauty. Simply called Smoked Beef Chilli. This is, without a doubt, one of the very best chillis I have ever eaten. It is absolutely delicious. Hunks of pulled beef that are super-tender swim in this unctuous and super-smokey chilli soup. It is warming not over spicey. It is salty and massively savoury due to the smoke. OMG, this was just an incredible chilli. Top marks for this one guys and be proud of this baby. I’ll have this every single time we come here now.

Here comes the 2nd sharing dish I ordered today. The server did say; “They are bigger than baby-back ribs…” Holy shit you weren’t joking fella. Look at the size of these mothers. BEST RIBS I have ever had I think. These are smoky, juicy, fatty super-tender, and slathered in that BBQ sauce. A heavily dish from Smokey’s. Up there with the very best. You just could not stop digging into these – I would say enough for 2-3 people with the amount of meat we gorged on from this 2 ‘slabs’. Just a bloody brilliant dish. Superb. Legendary in fact. Simply called St Louis Spare Ribs. a massively bold understatement. Should be The Abso-fecking-lutely Very Best St Louis Spare Ribs in my reckoning.

Heaven on a fork. Pink2Pink due to the smoking process. So very moist and just fall apart in your gob. I’ll say it again, heaven on a fork…

Smokeys Menu

Is it Smokey’s or Smoky’s – menu says Smokey’s. But is it Smokey’s BBQ or Smokey’s Grill?

Their menu is sort of their website – so you need to go there to see it in all its glory, but here are some samples of those pages for you. It’s punchy in the $ with some dishes hitting over the $30, but the food is super-tasty and it does take forever to smoke to get that pink and char, so I think it is more than viable.

There you have it, folks. A short review about Smokey’s BBQ @ Joo Chiat Place. I admit I forgot to take a picture of #1’s burger, but in my defence, that is because he had eaten it by the time I could unlock my bloody iPhone. Sorry to diss the brisket chaps, perhaps just an off-day. But be proud of the serving crew as they were bloody awesome. So attentive and just all-around nice. And be proud of the legendary, top of the class, St Louis Spare Ribs & Smoky Beef Chilli. Just AMAZE-BALLS. We’ll be seeing you again very soon guys. I need more!!!
