Head into Smokin Cole BBQ, where the smoky scent of slow-cooked meats fills the air and the lively buzz of Auckland's Grey Lynn neighborhood provides the backdrop for an authentic American BBQ experience.
This place isn't your average eatery; it's a carnivore's dream, where the meat takes center stage and the sides are its supportive cast. The decor is a straightforward, rustic tribute to the Southern States, featuring a blend of warm woods and industrial touches. It's a spot where the clink of cutlery and bursts of laughter mix, creating an atmosphere that's both vibrant and welcoming.
The culinary skill of Smokin Cole BBQ is showcased in their juicy smoked meats selection. The "meat candy" pork jowl, pickled with seasonal Kamo Kamo, is a highlight, with a sweetness that perfectly balances its rich smoky tones. The swift brisket, tenderly rubbed with the four saucemen black rub, is a masterpiece of taste, while the beef cheek, massaged with Rum & Que Blackout, crumbles at the slightest touch—a sign of its delicate perfection.
For those bold enough to enjoy the primal joy of meat on the bone, the Memphis dry rub pork ribs are essential. Served with a house-smoked BBQ sauce, they’re the kind of ribs that require you to get your hands dirty and your face sticky. And for those looking for a standout dish, the reverse-seared smoked tomahawk, with its price upon asking, hints at an experience that’s exclusive and luxurious.
In a place where the meats are this impressive, choosing a beverage to complement is key. Smokin Cole BBQ has you sorted with a selection of robust ales and full-bodied wines that hold their own against the strong flavors of the grill.
Finish your feast with a silent appreciation for the skilled pitmasters and the patience invested into every dish. Then, with a full belly and a taste of the South lingering on your lips, you’ll already be thinking about your return trip. Ready to be smoked at Smokin Cole BBQ?
