Once a month, Meatsmith is serving up American and Tex-Mex barbecue dishes with local brews.
At its Fitzroy store, Meatsmith is doing something other than serving up meat, condiments, charcuterie, wine and other items for your pantry. It's still doing that, but once a month, it's also whipping up American and Tex-Mex barbecue dishes. The new regular event is called Sunday Smokehouse, so you know what day of the week it's on — and it starts on Sunday, March 14.
A collaboration between Meatsmith and Wat-son the BBQ, Sunday Smokehouse will be serving up two options first up: 15-hour smoked brisket sandwiches with dill pickles and barbecue sauce ($15) and smoked jalapeño hot link sausages ($9). They're available for takeaway from 11.30am until sold out (or until 3pm, if they last that long). You can either head home to eat, or pull up a seat at the tables outside the shop.
Brews are also part of the event, with a different beer in the spotlight each month. For March, tinnies of Sailors Grave ($6) will be on offer.
And if you're wondering what has motivated the new Sunday series, it's inspired by past travels through southern America. So, while you can't physically make that trip yourself at the moment, due to border restrictions, your tastebuds can still reap the benefits.
