This is barbecue fare taken to a whole new level with precision fine dining techniques infused into the process.

4. The Joint

They call themselves a “no fine-dining, just a messy sauce everywhere and ‘laugh with your friends’ kind of BBQ joint. That’s right up our street! Exactly the sort of food you want to eat when you are having a cheat day and really let your hair down.

As well as terrific barbecue, there are great sides dishes, burgers and a large selection of drinks that will have you lingering here that little bit longer.

6. HotBox

HotBox use a combination of kiln-dried hickory and oak wood in a proper, authentic rotisserie smoker for a rich flavour in every piece of meat. The meat is dry-rubbed and cooked low and slow to create tender, succulent cuts that melt in the mouth.

Word to the wise… The portions are always massive, so you will want to work up a massive appetite before heading here.

7. Texas Joe’s Slow Smoked Meat

As the name suggests, this is a proper Southern USA-style BBQ joint where they even make tasty beef jerky. One you taste the jerky here there will be no going back –  you’ll be hooked for life!

So many great dishes to choose from but their short beef ribs and the brisket are two of the stand outs. By far some of the best BBQ in London. Superb.
