Hong Kong’s first American smokehouse opens!

Smoke & Barrel, which will be Hong Kong’s first American smokehouse, opens its doors on 32 Wyndham Street in early October.

The brainchild of chef-restaurateur duo Chris Grare and Arron Rhodes, Smoke & Barrel follows in the footsteps of their first successful joint venture, Kinship, which opened in May 2019. The smokehouse, which will be run by Chef Christopher Tuthill and chef Chris Grare, will bring the old-fashioned American barbecue experience to Hong Kong, using all-American meats, slow-and-low traditional cooking techniques, and the only authentic imported wood-fired smoker in Hong Kong. The service, pricing and menu will be similar to the beloved Kinshipcosy with its cosy environment.

“I grew up in the States with the quintessential childhood memories of backyard barbecues and the experiences of sharing delicious, smoked meats that fell off the bone. I miss the tradition, and hope we can revive it here in Hong Kong,” said co-founder, Chris Grare.

“We found a gap in the market for authentic smokehouse-style barbecue, and we were lucky to acquire our specially-handcrafted smoker produced by a passionate family business in Missouri,” says co-founder, Arron Rhodes. “We can’t wait to welcome guests to our second home in Hong Kong.”
