BBQ Restaurants, now let me see. 


Gas & Co 

Grillstock has 2 sites in Bristol and 1 opening in Bath soon



All these BBQ Restaurants have sprung up over the last year or so in Bristol, I guess Bristol is a BBQ Hot Spot as well as a Great City.


My favourite is Gas & Co on Whiteladies RD, Clifton Bristol


Check them all out if you're feeling hungry !

Thank you very much for the tip off buddy,
Bristol is a bit of a drive for me but if they are as good as you say they are then I think a road trip is in order.
Thanks again.

I know I'm late to this post but I hope this helps:


I see you are from sunny Southend, only a short ride on the rattler away from Central London.


I've only ever been to Bodean's (several locations) and the Red Dog Saloon and both were merely average. Food always tends to arrive cold or at best, warm and I wouldn't really say they were worth the trip unless you tagged it onto a night out in town or something.


Friends of mine have always gone on about how good "Miss P’s Barbecue and Smokestak" are but I cant vouch for that until I've tried both.


Hope this helps buddy

Thanks again mate.

Can vouch for Grillstock in Bristol. Have to get the whole tray if you go to Grillstock just to try a bit of everything. They also do a festival in the summer. Think it is actually this weekend where they have a few BBQ experts but this is more BBQ than smoking. A few of my other favourites in Bristol is Meat and Bread which do lovely sandwiches and Hickory Pig which seem to roll around in a burger van type thing and do a few pop up events.


Been to Bodeans in London which was quite nice. Pitt n Cue also have one in London I believe. There cookbook looks pretty amazing but I have not actually eaten there.

BOBOBBBQ - you should do a road trip to Bristol. There seems to a recent influx of BBQ restaurants and AMerican style food or 'dude food'. Another I forgot to mention is MeatLiquor which are in London. There are 3 i think in London with various names. Heard a rumour that there will be one soon on gloucester road in Bristol which will be nice. There is also Urban standards which is bar doing good stuff at the minute


SMD BBQ Team - what is Gas & Co like? Have never been there and am thinking of heading there on friday? Have looked a few reviews and it gets a bit of a mixed reception

Hi BigeaterUK, 


Gas & Co is much improve since the start where things were a little shaky. They have improved massively with the Burn Ends and is well worth a try.


Happy eating !
