Fox Hat food – Food that is not cooked conventionally! We steer clear of conventional ovens and frying pans, creating a much more communal and collaborative eating experience. Instead, we use styles of cooking which were used by our ancestors through necessity, using wood fire to create incredibly succulent and flavoursome, wood smoked meat. We like to take BBQ cooking to the level which it deserves, using the finest sourced meat and produce.
Fox Hat Food is centred around “Grizzly”; our expedition prepared Land Rover Defender.(Coincidentally, he is very adaptable and is also a rather rustic bar facility.) He allows us to bring our concept to your event and gives us the ability to do so with any of the cooking styles we use. Our smoker “Ginger” has the ability to feed up to 500 people at an event and is the core cooking method used at Fox Hat. We also love to cook with our Asados and Parrilla. Regardless of the style of cooking you decide upon, we will create for you rustic meats and fare, with wonderful flavours and cooked right in front of you, adding to the social aspect of any event.
“Ginger” our BBQ Mates smoker trailer, is a reverse flow offset smoker.
There is a fire box attached to the large smoking chamber, to create the heat and smoke. In the bottom of the chamber, sits a baffle plate which retains heat and creates radiant heat inside the chamber. The remainder of the heat and smoke travel under the baffle and then over the meat, creating convective heat and kisses the meat lovely wood smoke. This makes the cooking method as effective as possible and imparts some amazing flavour to the meat in the form of a savoury meaty crust, known as bark.
‘The Grizzly bar’ a conceptual take of the bar experience, suited for a simpler, relaxed and rustic approach that aims to create atmosphere and brings the good times right alongside the experience of the smoker. The Landrover converted wooden bar is perfectly placed to create the ultimate beer bar, Gin bar ,whiskey bar or even create a mini cocktail hour for his and hers cocktails.
We don’t limited ourselves to the usual, we love to create awesome cocktails for our specific events, incorporating the personality of the people we work alongside. We embrace the use of locally sourced suppliers, hey we live in Scotland, great beer, gin and whisky on our doorsteps.We love to supporting our local communities and partnering up
