    Noble Smoke — Charlotte

    I went to Noble Smoke today, which is close to the airport and Uptown Charlotte. It was great! We ordered 3 pounds of brisket, which came as a straight cross section of the point, so it has lean and fatty, but it was mostly fatty (my favorite). The smoke was clean, but it could’ve used a stronger smoke flavor. From what I could tell, it was S&P rub.

    The sides were delicious!! Brussel Sprouts, hush puppies, pickled veggies, and Freedom Fries (smoked cheese melted on French fries).

    Then I took a tour of the smokers. I think there were 8-1000 gallon smokers and then a traditional NC brick pit built within the walls of the building. Offset fire feeding two smoke chambers where they cook all the pork.

    They said they rest the briskets for at least 8 hours at 150 in a warming chamber. They said that was a (not so secret) secret.

    All the wood is hickory. Their wood supplier is https://carolinacookwood.com

    I highly recommend Noble Smoke!

    Great review!

    8 hours seems pretty long on the rest but maybe they have business reasons to do so. Maybe it lets it produce more brisket to sell?

      Aaron Franklin lets it rest that long. But certainly having such a wide time period to rest then serve is good for preparing and serving on short order.

        Anyone can take the tour. Just ask and a manager will bring you over. I was wearing my Franklin BBQ shirt, so it probably helped to hit it off so well with the manager and pit masters.

          I love that the pits seem to be named.

            That's a pretty fantastic set up. Thanks for sharing - I drive through Charlotte fairly frequently. I might have to plan a stop...

              They’re named after his family members. Pretty cool!

            Our Favorite Backyard Smoker

            The amazing Karubecue is the most innovative smoker in the world. The quality of meat from this machine is astonishing. At its crux is a patented firebox that burns logs above the cooking chamber and sucks heat and extremely clean blue smoke into the thermostat controlled oven. It is our favorite smoker, period.

            Green Mountain Grills Trek smoker

            Green Mountain’s portable Trek Smoker is one mean tailgating and picnic machine. But it’s also gaining popularity with people who want to add a small, set it and forget it pellet smoker to their backyard arsenal. And with their WiFi capabilities you can control and monitor Trek from your smart phone or laptop.

            The Good-One Is A Superb Grill And A Superb Smoker All In One


            The Good-One Open Range is dramatically different from a traditional offset smoker. By placing the heat source behind and under the smokebox instead of off to the side, Open Range produces even temperature from left to right, something almost impossible to achieve with a standard barrel shaped offset.

            3 burner gas grill

            The Broil King Signet 320 is a modestly priced, 3-burner gas grill that packs a lot of value and power under the hood. Broil King’s proprietary, dual-tube burners get hot fast and are able to achieve high, searing temps that rival most comparatively priced gas grills. The quality cast aluminum housing carries a Limited Lifetime Warranty.

            The Pit Barrel Cooker May Be Too Easy


            The PBC has a rabid cult following for good reason. It is absolutely positively without a doubt the best bargain on a smoker in the world. Period. This baby will cook circles around the cheap offset sideways barrel smokers because temperature control is so much easier.
