HERE AT THE HOP AND CLEAVER WE ARE PASSIONATE ABOUT OUR BARBEQUE AND PASSIONATE ABOUT DOING IT RIGHT! WE’VE IMPORTED AMERICAN SMOKING OVENS FROM PONCA CITY, OKLAHOMA AND A SELECTION OF MESQUITE, HICKORY AND FRUIT WOODS TO PRODUCE DELICIOUS, DELICATE SMOKEY FLAVOURS FOR OUR EXCEPTIONAL QUALITY, LOCAL MEATS. WORKING WITH LOCAL SUPPLIERS AND PRODUCERS WE KEEP THE QUALITY HIGH, THE FOOD MILES LOW AND THE TASTE EXCEPTIONAL. OUR FRIENDS AT FREEMANS BUTCHERS HAVE SECURED US ONLY BEST, INCLUDING PURE BEEF BRED LIMOUSIN BEEF FROM MATFEN, FARMED BY FRANK ROBSON, AND RARE BREED, OUTDOOR REARED PIGS FOR DELICIOUSLY TASTY, MEATY RIBS. OUR SAUSAGES ARE HAND MADE BY PETER FROM THE AMBLE BUTCHER. DELICATELY SPICED, EACH ONE IS INDIVIDUALLY HAND TIED WITH STRING TO HANG IN OUR SMOKER BEFORE BEING CHARRED AT OVER 500 DEGREES TO LOCK IN THE JUICES! IT REALLY DOES MAKE THE ULTIMATE IN HOT DOGS!
