Last Saturday we had our BBQ open day here at Goodwood!
While our core business has always been the sale and supply of Kiln dried firewood we have also been researching and developing the barbecue and smoking/cooking side of our business in the last 5 years and we now stock a vast array of premium products from different brands such as Kamado Bono, Morsoe, Jotul, Fireboks and Earth Fires while also getting in the world-famous full range of Angus and Oink rubs and sauces and manufacturing our own Goodwood branded charcoal! The outdoor living and cooking scene in Ireland has exploded in the last few years and we like to think that we have played an integral role in facilitating this growth, the BBQ community have been so good in accepting us and helping us grow in the last few years with their support online and in person so we felt a day like this was the ideal way for us to give back and boy did they show up in force. The event took place in our own yard at 24 North Strand Drogheda meaning we could show customers both new and old around our premises and let them see how wonderful Goodwood really is.
The day was a great success, there was a larger turnout than anticipated but we still had enough food and fun for everybody. In particular our heavily discounted one day only prices on our Goodwood charcoal and fruit wood chunks went down a treat! Chefs David Oelke, Orinta Ko, Vino Peritus and Chris Kearney cooked up some of the most delicious food you could ever imagine. Examples of some of the food available to try on the day were steak, pulled pork, chowder, salmon, bread and butter pudding, chicken and a variety of sausages.
All of the cooking was done on barbecues and outdoor ovens that we stock and sell using charcoal, fruit wood and braai wood that we also sell meaning our customers could recreate any of the wonderful dishes themselves at home. The Angus and Oink rubs and sauces used in almost all of the dishes went down a treat, pictured below is the magnificent Seafood Chowder (which features Angus and Oinks Lemon and Pepper rub). These rubs and sauces are all available on our website or if you want our personal recommendations you can call down to the yard or ring and we would be happy to show you some of our favourites!
Big thanks to local businesses Tuites Butchers, Kirwans Fish Cart and McCloskeys bakery for supplying the food on the day. Due to overwhelming success, we may throw another customer appreciation open day sometime in the future so keep your eyes peeled!
