Slow and steady wins the race and over at Holy Smoke, low-and-slow reigns victorious every time. Serving heavenly meat and veggie plates from a pit-smoked BBQ, eating here is akin to a religious experience.

If you don't know your cow, have no fear, there's a wonderfully informative, giant illustration of a cow on a wall in the restaurant with every cut labelled for your convenience! Not only that, there are cheery lightbulbs, an informal bar and tables big enough to squeeze on your chopping boards laden with meaty goodness.

Warm up the stomach with some small plates, like their sticky BBQ chicken wings, fire-grilled prawns, ox cheek or some veggie-friendly mac n' cheese melts and spicy couscous with pesto and pumpkin seeds. Then for the mains, your stomach better be ready for an absolute feast!

Get messy with some baby back ribs or a pit-smoked BBQ chicken. Want something with a bit of bite? Go for the brisket burnt ends or opt for an expertly cooked steak with grilled onions and mushrooms. There are burgers too, like the classic juicy Lucy, the mammoth king pig or donut burger with two patties buried under crispy onions and smoky bacon. Food coma, is that you?
