Smo Fo Pit Stop May Bank Holiday

Smo Fo Pit Stop May Bank HolidayDon’t you just love this time of year, we’re seeing glimpses of summer and the weeks get shorter as we are bombarded with Bank Holidays. Great, isn’t? When the two combine you really need to embrace it as it’s pretty rare. The Easter weekend was a bit of a write off which was unfortunate for Smo Fo Smoked Food who launched their first BBQ event Smo Fo Pit Stop in the Summit House car park in town. It wasn’t BBQ weather, it was bloody freezing!

If Carol from BBC Breakfast is telling the truth then they have nothing to worry about as the sun will be shining for the second Smo Fo Pit Stop on May Day Bank Holiday. That’s right, a full weekend packed with sunshine! Smo Fo Smoked Food have been supplying the city with smoked bar snacks, designed to partner craft beers for over 3 years now, the Pit Stop takes them into new areas. The business started out as a butcher, supplying Sheffield’s pubs with pies and scotch eggs and the growth has been a natural course of events. If you haven’t tried their smoked pork scratchings you don’t know what you are missing out on!

Smo Fo Pit Stop Meat MenuYou might not think a BBQ in a car park in the middle of the Sheffield is the perfect combo. Usually you can enjoy the risk of cooking burgers and sausages in your garden. Smo Fo takes things up a level with a taste of the Deep South without having to fly 10 hours to enjoy what Texas has to offer (it’s worth a visit though!) just across the road from the Plug from Friday through to Sunday.

It’s not glamorous but it doesn’t need to be. They haven’t settled for some pulled pork and beef brisket, their menu is extensive, covering the best off Texas and beyond with Asian Baus and steak burgers, obviously their pub snacks are available too.

Sm Fo Pit Stop Closed Shop MenuIf you aren’t a meat eater don’t worry, The Closed Shop have put together an equally delicious sounding menu. The Vegan friendly BBQ includes burgers, koftas and soya Mac and cheese.

And the best part?

What goes perfectly with meat? BEER! They’ve gone and pulled the double with picking some of Sheffield’s best breweries to quench the thirst including Sentinel Brewery, Abbeydale Brewery and us!

There’s live music and DJs across the weekend too.

If you want to enjoy the sun, eat good grub, some great beer and music over the Bank Holiday weekend then Smo Fo Pit Stop ticks the boxes! Children and dogs are welcome for this free event.

This pop—up event is the first of what will become a monthly event. They’ve sourced some of the best BBQ going, catering for carnivores and vegans so that nobody goes hungry.
