Smokey BBQ meats and Cocktails at Low, Slow and Juke!

The lovely Su-Lin greeted us and took us on a guided tour of Low, Slow and Juke with its little nooks and crannies  – and we were amused by the aptly named ‘Meating Rooms’!

This was followed by a selection of cocktails created by our skilled bartender, with their signature cocktails being smoked cocktails, using Apple and Jack Daniels Wood Chips; including David’s Smoked Cinnamon Old Fashioned made with a Jack Daniels wood chips smoked bourbon, C’s Vanilla & Fig Sour, and my Smoked Cherry Manhattan with oak smoked Bulleit bourbon. Loved the theatre of the smoke billowing out as the cocktails were smoked!

We got a tour of the smoking room from Chef Jonathan :

Getting to see where the magic happens at Low, Slow and Juke – meet the meat in the smoker!

Su-Lin and Dave explained that the house homemade sauces (House BBQ, South Carolina BBQ, Smoky Ketchup, Chilli Vinegar, Chipotle Mayo, and Bastardo Sauce) you can either try individually with the dishes (they will recommend sauces for individual dishes); or you can go off-piste and make your own saucy combo creations!

Sticky chicken wings, deep fried mac and cheese, and smoked baconfat popcorn :

Loved the molasses sweetness on the sticky chicken wings, and it went well with the chipotle mayo. The popcorn went well with our smoked welcome drinks too.

Pork and Jacob’s Ladder beef short-ribs, plus french fries and red cabbage / green slaw :

The meat is marinated for 24 hours before being slow and steadily smoked for 16 hours, flavours transporting you to the US Southern States.

Sticky glazed chicken :

We rounded off proceedings with smokey bacon brownies! Of course accompanied by the obligitory dessert cocktails of Gentleman’s Tipple (made with Bourbon smoked Gentleman Jack’s Whiskey) , Honey and Basil Smoked Daiquiri (made with Apple wood chips smoked Havana 3 Year Old Rum), and Disarrono Amaretto Sour.

Great meeting and catching up with other foodies including David , Ade and Saff , Fiona , Anna , and the What2London girls .

A fun night had by all with an array of finger licking snacks, smoked bbq meats, cocktails with smoked spirits, and even a smokey influenced dessert – go check them out!

About goantolondon

International food and travel blog by London based British Goan duo: Jason and Chiara Pinto. Twitter: @goantolondon @jasonpinto100 @chiarapinto About Goa: Goa is a small state on the western coast of India. Though the smallest Indian state, Goa has played an influential role in Indian history. Goa was one of the major trade centers in India, thus it had always been attracting the influential dynasties, seafarers, merchants, traders, monks and missionaries since its earliest known history. Throughout its history Goa has undergone continual transformation, leaving an indelible impression on various aspects of its cultural and socio-economic development. History of Goa: The East-West symbiosis of Goa makes it different from other parts of India, more than the historical and social niche. The history of Goa is a sweet and sour story of colonial heritage, oppressive rulers, a glorious culture, and uneventful immediate past. As a land with the identity of its own, Goa was brought into focus when it was liberated of Portugal from its oppressive rule of around 450 hundred years in 1961. Goa was captured and annexed to the Portuguese in 1510 following the urges of trade and demand of spices and also cottons and indigo. But, Goa has a history that starts much before Portugal even thought of Goa being where it is. Goa was coveted and ruled by a great number of Indian kingdoms and dynasties from the 4th century onwards. The first kingdom to rule Goa and Konkan were Bhojas, who were the feudatories of Ashoka in 4th and 5th centuries AD. The city of Chandrapur (present Chandor) was founded by Prince Chandraditya, son of Chalukya King Pulakesin from 566 to 597 A.D. after this, Goa was ruled consecutively by Silahara Dynasty, Kadamba Danasty, and finally Hoysalas from 1022 to 1342 A.D. From the 14th century onwards, Goa became a great trading center on the west coast, especially in the vast trade of horses imported from the Middle East. This was the time for bigger empires to move in and Vijayanagar Empire conquered it in 1344. But there empire was not going to last too long and in 1347, Bahmani Sultans defeated Vijayanagara forces in 1347 and controlled Goa. Afterwards, it was a time of great prosperity and peace for Gpa, especially during the rules of Yusuf Adil Shah and Ismail Adil Shah. They created beautiful houses, fortified Goa, and encouraged local craftsmen. Their liberal and progressive rule was not going to last too long and situation changed in 1510 A.D. Goa for all purposes was not on the Portuguese Radar even after a long time of their presence in India. When the Portuguese nobleman Alfonso de Albuquerque and his cousin Francisco de Albuquerque were sent with a powerful fleet in 1503 on the orders of King Dom Manuel I, the purpose was to defend the cargoes of spices, mostly pepper, against Arab Muslim raiders. The center of spice trade was Calicut at that time and Portuguese had built forts in Cochin and Cannanore. It was in 1506-08 that an opportunistic pirate, Timoja, persuaded Albuquerque to attack Goa and acquire a better land base. This made Goa, Portugal's first real territorial acquisition in Asia. After a brief period of recapturing by the Muslims, Goa Albuquerque finally captured Goa in 1510. The inquisition of Goa in 1540 reversed the previous liberal policy of Albuquerque and imposed strict censorship of literature and new laws to forbade non-Christians from professions. Forced conversions took place continuously, censorship was established on literature, the temples were destroyed, and non-Christian priests, holy men, and teachers were evicted. This led to continuous fleeing of Hindus from Goa to other parts of India. It is not that the relationship with Portugal brought only destruction for the Goans. Portuguese also built great churches like the church of St. Cajetan and Bom Jesus basilica in Old Goa, which is a pilgrimage site for the Christians from around the world. But it is also true that pre-1961; Goa was a highly impoverished region very backward and primitive. It is after the liberation that Goa of today has emerged and it has surprised even the locals many of whom had left their homeland before its liberation. Portugal and India are today friends and Goa continues to be a fascinating blend of Latin and Oriental. Information sourced from:
