2. Blue Boar 37-45 Tothill St, London, SW1H 9LQ (Westminster)

Blue Boar is a haven for all things meat. Start your meal off with some slow-cooked rabbit and lobster and move along to the smoked-in-house lamb shoulder. Polish it off with some of London's finest micro-brews, or take a sip of its "house pour," Portobello Road gin.

3. Pitt Cue Co. 1 Newburgh St, London, W1F 7RB (Soho)

Previously a BBQ joint on wheels, Pitt Cue Co. is a brick and mortar loaded with the same quality barbeque from the mobile version, plus 30 seats to enjoy the Southern & Midwestern American smoked fare. On the menu you can expect epic slow-smoked meat and perfect sides like loaded skins, crispy, pickled shiitakes, and venison sausages.

4. Duke's Brew & Que 33 Downham Rd, , London, N1 5AA (Hackney)

Duke's Brew & Que's an eccentric log cabin with gnarled wood tables, mismatched chairs, and its very own home-smoker & microbrewery.

5. BrewDog Shoreditch 55 Bethnal Green Rd, London, E1 6LA (Shoreditch)

Not only does this place have the aesthetics of a cool beer bar down (antique tiles, reclaimed metal throughout, and a bar completely exposed by a wall of glass), they also serve up great suds and house the amazing BBQ joint that is Texas Joe's, whose brisket is otherworldly.

6. Q Grill 29-33 Chalk Farm Rd, London, NW1 8AJ (Camden)

Brought to you by the man who started Islington's Fish & Chip Shop, the Q Grill specializes in Memphis-style BBQ with big cuts of meat that are tender and smokey with enough fat to keep things moist, but what really steals the show here is their bag o’ wings.
