Big Smoke is a glimmer of glamour on the grimy Donaukanal. As you sit on a slick elevated deck overlooking the path you feel like you are getting amongst it from a safe distance—ringside seats if you will. Watching the passing joggers wince as their healthy lungs fill with BBQ smoke trails is just part of fun.
Whether it be beef, ribs, pork or sausages (there are vegetarian options as well, but this ain’t no tofu and alfalfa party) great care is taken to pull and smoke the meat (sometimes for up to 15 hours). The beef brisket brioche sandwich is the perfect combination of smoky and spicy, with a taste that lingers on the lips for hours.
Devastatingly it closes at the end of September, until next year that is, when Irishman Brian Patton will be back with another carnivorous summertime pop-up. Meat sweats ahoi!
