Hearty grub perfect for those with an insatiable appetite

Meat may be a common ingredient found in many dishes across a variety of cuisines, but to see them smoked and perfected, you’ll have to visit American-style barbecue joints which have their recipes on lock. Below, we list four hotspots in Singapore where you’lll be thoroughly satisfied with the hearty BBQ eats they have to offer.

Decker Barbecue


For speciality smoked meats of premium quality, one only needs to head down to The Quayside’s ever-popular Decker Barbecue. And that’s mostly thanks to a custom-built smoker from Dallas, Texas and a super secret spice rub, two key players in allowing Decker to bring locals that authentic Texan dining experience. Get a taste of its signatures such as the Rib Plate featuring pork ribs with slaw, as well as the mouth-watering wagyu brisket.




It’s an understatement to say that this Southern-inspired joint is big on hearty grub, as sharing platters on the menus across their humble outlets entail lamb chops, suckling pig biryani and even 14-hour smoked brisket and pork ribs. But that’s not to say that the restaurant doesn’t do refined offerings; just head up to Meatsmith Little India’s second level to find a tasting menu guarantee to make you swoon.

Red Eye Smokehouse


Priding themselves on being an American-style BBQ smokery, Red Eye Smokehouse offers tender smoked meats from Tuesdays to Sundays, until sold out. That means you should always head there early (and hungry) for options such as the Iberico Duroc Pork Ribs, USDA Brisket and Australian Beef Short Ribs. Pair those with the refreshing craft beers available in-house, and you’ll find yourself a feast to remember right at the heart of Jalan Besar.

Smokey’s BBQ


Utilising only US beef, Smokey’s BBQ at Joo Chiat Place specialises in brisket, short ribs, as well as your classic, all-American burgers bursting with flavour. But also feel free to try their homemade Smoked Beef Chili and the signature pulled-pork sandwich Chux Hog; it’s almost guaranteed that you’ll leave this place stuffed to the core.
