The Blue Anchor’s smokehouse has won the People Choice award at the British Street Food competition.

The Little Blue Smokehouse is the pub’s street food stall.  They cure, brine and dry rub all their our meat, before they hot smoke it, with oak in their own smokehouse.

CrowboroughLife brought you the news that back in June they successfully competed in the South East heat in Brighton.

Over the course of a weekend in Leeds, twenty-five of the best street food traders from the UK and Europe competed to win an award in the finals of the British Street Food.The most hotly contested award of the weekend was the People’s Choice award, voted for by the people who came to the event and ate at the stalls.

The food served by The Little Blue Smokehouse included their signature dishes of Pulled Pork, Brisket & Hot smoked Pastrami and they added Korean BBQ style smoked Pigs Cheeks, The Umami Bomb (stout braised smoked Ox Cheeks) and Bourbon cured smoked shredded lamb.

On hearing that the Little Blue Smokehouse won the People’s Choice, owner Martyn Cotton said:

To win this award is incredible.  This award is extra special to us as it was the people who ate with us voted for us.  It gives us confidence in our product.  We are a small business and really want to use this award to grow our business.  We want to say a massive thank you to everyone who came out to see us and voted for us.  We have a blast in Leeds and can’t wait for the chance to go back again.

The Blue Anchor also won the Pub Food of the Year Award from their brewery Shepherd Neame.  The judges also said they were impressed by the smoked meats from the smokehouse, but they also praised the high quality of its classic pub dishes.

The Little Blue Smokehouse can be found at Street Diner Brighton every Friday between 11am – 3pm.  You can follow them on Facebook and Twitter to keep up with other events.
