Smokehaus, which has existed for the last year as a catering company will now have a brick and mortar location right next door to Brat Haus. Located in the building that used to house Union Barrel House, Smokehaus is set to open in mid-January with its claim to fame as the home of the Santa Maria Tri-Tip Sandwich.
“It’s always been a goal of mine to expand our catering business into a restaurant concept. With the closure next door, the opportunity presented itself to bring that goal to life. We’re working hard to quickly get the building ready for a mid-January opening of Smokehaus,” said Dave Andrea, owner, Brat Haus and Smokehaus.
The theme and menu for Smokehaus will draw inspiration from central coastal California’s Santa Maria style BBQ but with an Arizona twist. Utilizing two huge meat smokers and an open flame grill with mesquite and red oak wood, tri-tip sandwiches will be a featured menu item. Additional Smokehaus entrée offerings will include chicken, ribs, pulled pork, salmon, and burgers. Side dishes include ranch beans, street corn, pork belly mac and cheese, waffle fries and more. Dishes like the 1984 taco salad, rattlesnake chili and the Greasewood burger will add a unique and fun Arizona flare and nostalgia to the menu.
As an added bonus, the new Smokehaus property comes with a large parking lot that will be used for both Smokehaus and Brat Haus customers.
“Parking has been an ongoing challenge at Brat Haus, so this will be great news for our current customers and those that have wanted to enjoy the beer garden but were discouraged by parking challenges,” continued Andrea.
Smokehaus will be located right next door to Brat Haus at 3636 N. Scottsdale Road, Scottsdale, AZ 85251. The team is shooting for a mid-January soft opening. Stay tuned to the Smokehaus website for more details at www.smokehausaz.com and be sure to follow on social channels @smokehausaz.
