The Big Smoke BBQ in Fulham

The Big Smoke Barbecue is popping up at The Elk Bar near Fulham Broadway this summer.

"The Big Smoke BBQ is set to arrive in London, bringing the best of al-fresco cooking to Fulham with the first ever use of the ground-breaking Primo BBQ in the capitol. Promising to serve an array of summer favourites and several innovative tobacco and beer infused cocktails for a BBQ unlike any other seen before.
A delicious selection of barbeque classics with a twist will be cooked on London’s first Primo XL, the world’s finest ceramic BBQ. Andy Annat, three times British BBQ champion and UK Ambassador for Primo BBQ, will be bringing “the world’s most versatile BBQ” to The Big Smoke. He states that it not only has a “ceramic grill that uses charcoal rather than gas for a better flavour, but it can also be used for baking items such as bread” and finally, Andy’s speciality, “it can perfectly smoke food at low or high temperatures”. The Primo retains heat for up to 12 hours locking in the moisture and flavour ensuring delicious and tender meat. Head Chef Paul Sowden will also use wood chips from a variety of trees giving the food different flavours, or even from Jack Daniels barrels resulting in a delicious whiskey hint to the succulent meat. 
Brought to London by Mint Group, proprietors of some of London's most popular hot spots, The Big Smoke will be located in the stylish garden of Elk Bar, a West London institution. Enclosed in an authentic wooden smoke shack, guests can relax on rustic benches, surrounded by exotic plants and bright umbrellas, transporting them to a holiday destination despite being in the busy capital. 
Everyone loves a beer to go with their barbeque so The Big Smoke bar will also be serving a revolutionary selection of beer and tobacco-infused cocktails. These will include The Ginger Bread Ale Flip containing Meantime Pale Ale, Bacardi OakHeart spiced rum, Ginger Syrup, a dash of sours and finished with Ground Nutmeg and an Old Fashioned made with Jack Daniels No.7 and a new ingredient in the form of Perique tobacco liqueur. Or, not for the faint hearted, try The Mad Dog, a powerful concoction served in a giant martini glass filled with frozen margarita and two bottles of Corona beer upturned into the glass."
