I spent a lot of time at Santa Pod during the mid 80's, drifted away, then visited twice last year for the euro nationals in May and September.

I was pleasantly surprised by the upgrades - from new tarmac, decent wc's and something other than kebabs and burgers to eat!

They even have a van that sells pulled pork rolls, although I was dissappointed to find it wasn't smoked pulled pork.


I also like the idea of taking a smoker up there - once I have one anyway.


Quite amazed that you're just up the road in Aldershot...

I also got burnt in May lol, and was there only on Sun/Mon :) I think the wind made it feel cooler.

September sunday only was dry/sunny except for a short patch of light rain.


I'm based in West Clandon, which is 4 miles east of Guildford, just south of the A3.

Well, to put the thread kinda back on track,

I took a trip to Brighton today with one of my objectives being to check out one of the two eateries mentioned earlier in the thread.

I went with a friend to Smokeys on the sea front, where I had smoked brisket chips n slaw to eat.

I have wanted to try smoked brisket for what seems like an eternity now, and although I have nothing to reference my experience, I was really happy with the plate set before me.

I had 4-5 thick slices(approx 1/2+ inch thick) of brisket, which was tender, lean and had a distinctive hickory flavour smokieness to it.

From what I understood from talking to one of the waiters, who's been there since the opening 8-9 months ago, all their meat dishes are hickory smoked, which also include pulled pork, chicken, pork ribs, and a homemade sausage. Below is a menu link:


Going purely on a single visit, I would recommend this place, and I intend on going back to try some other dishes.

however as I have no other reference  as to how smoked brisket could or should taste, if it's not too far, pay them a visit yourself :)

Well Andy, if it was a big plate of tender tasty smoked brisket then I guess you can't ask for much more.  DARN!!!  You folks are going to make me drive to Brighton aren't ya??  Have fun.  Keep Smokin!

I took another trip to Brighton today, this time with the intention(amoungst other things) of giving the Bar-B-Q Shack a visit for the sake of smokey food tasting:drool

It is basically the menu for the Worls End Pub on the London Road, opposite-ish the fire station, including pulled pork, brisket, ribs and sausage, amoungst other things.

I decided to try the pulled pork sandwich, which came with coleslaw and some pickles, all for £7.95.

The pork tasted good and tender, and had a good smokey taste, which wasn't too over powering.

This as another place worth visiting for smoked food, if you decide to visit Brighton.
