Smokey Moo has moved. The home of smoked beef perfection, formerly found in East Brisbane, has set up new digs at trendy Newstead in Gasworks Plaza.
The popular smoked beef barbecue restaurant dishes up delicious American-style eats like mouth-watering brisket and beef ribs, smoked to perfection. All of Smokey Moo's meat is smoked in house, including the eatery's next-level pastrami that's cured for three weeks.
Meats can be sampled on sandwiches (on your choice of white panino, rye and oat, or gluten-free); as well as platters piled with brisket, ribs, beef cheeks and pastrami served with two sides of your choice - Moo fries, coleslaw or cob salad (tomatoes, cucumber, spanish onion, chargrilled corn and three mustard vinaigrette).
Otherwise, try one of Smokey's signature dishes such as The Dirty Dozen - golden fries topped with caramelised onion, a trio of cheeses (Monterey Jack, American cheddar and Tex-Mex Queso Quesedilla) plus two sauces, accompanied by four delectable carved meats and a side of Smokey Moo jus.
Smokey Moo’s Idaho Potatoes are definitely worth a try - fried potato skins filled with creamed corn, one carved meat of your choosing and Moo jus.
If you still have room for dessert, there's New York baked cheesecake, Cherry Ripe slice and three-layer chocolate mousse made with white, milk and dark chocolate.
Drinks wise, there's craft beer, Corona, Coors and Moo Brew, plus as a carefully curated wine list that includes Australian and international drops. In addition, there's mocktails ( Shirley Temple and Cactus Juice - lemon and lime juice, chilli syrup and homemade lemonade) as well as classic and creative cocktails like The Paloma (tequila, Compari, freshly squeezed grapefruit juice, soda and smoked salt), Sour Sally (bourbon, amaretto, sour orange, orange bitters, egg white and candied orange) and Boot Shaker (Sailor Jerry spiced rum, ginger beer, lime, mint and Tabasco with a chilli flower garnish).
