Edinburgh’s first smokehouse is expanding its opening hours to help ‘meat’ the high demand for its high quality barbecued food in the Capital.

REEKIE’S Smokehouse is an independent restaurant run by a husband-and-wife that uses classic American BBQ techniques to smoke top quality local meats with a tasty Scottish twist.

Now, the popular joint located on Holyrood Road is to welcome hungry customers from the hours of 11:30am until 9pm, after food lovers voiced their desire for authentic smoked food late into the evening.

The carefully crafted menu boasts a variety of locally sourced, slow cooked meats including tasty pork shoulder, mouth-watering ribs from specially selected Scottish Pork and succulent beef brisket using Scotch Beef PGI.

All of these can be drizzled in Reekie’s exclusive, made-from-scratch Scottish-themed sauces such as Buckie Broon, Whisky Jerk, Craft Beer Mustard and the must-try Irn Bru BBQ.

Owners Craig and Felicity Cameron said the idea for the restaurant came to them when they were looking for a way to showcase Scotland’s amazing meat produce in a relaxed, informal setting.

After trialling the restaurant for lunch and late afternoon, the couple are now confident there is big demand for them to be hosting diners for dinner.

Craig said: “We’re delighted to be extending our opening hours. Nothing is more rewarding than seeing happy customers enjoying our food, so to be in a position to welcome even more people through the door is extremely exciting for us.

“The whole concept started when we arrived back in Edinburgh from a few years overseas eating in very informal settings. We’d always enjoyed hosting BBQs so set about developing a menu we felt used Scotland’s delicious beef and pork to its full potential. The key to a great BBQ is using top quality meat.”

Reekie’s Smokehouse’s menu prides itself on using only 100% Scottish meats and local produce where possible with uniquely specified quality meats from East Lothian butcher J Gilmour, locally supplied vegetables, honey, and small-hold free range eggs.

All drinks from beer to soft drinks are Scottish with a great range of craft beers and local sodas and juices. Even the coffee roast was designed by Craig and Felicity and is produced by Home Ground Coffee in Cardross.

Craig continued: “We see ourselves as being a classic, neighbourhood eatery – a place you know and go to for one type of food but know that it will always be reliably excellent, honest and relaxed.

“Our aim was to create somewhere that is sociable and casual with delicious quality food to tuck into. You can pop in for a quick bite or sit and relax with a group of friends for as long as you want.

“Our meats are smoked overnight for 22 hours and served up in a sandwich, tub or as a “Meatfest” to share, meaning we have something to suit everyone.”

Reekie’s Smokehouse is now open Tuesday – Saturday 11:30am to 9pm. More information can be found on the website at: www.reekiessmokehouse.co.uk
