SmokeHaus, the second eatery from local restaurateur Dave Andrea, will open its doors to the public on Monday, February 1 at 3636 North Scottsdale Road. Located next door to Andrea's Brat Haus restaurant, SmokeHaus will specialize in barbecue and smoked meats — specifically, the Santa Maria Tri-Tip Sandwich. Already billed as the restaurant's signature item, the sandwich will feature hand-rubbed, smoked tri-tip served on a grilled French roll.
The restaurant also will serve items such as The Greasewood, a half-pound beef patty topped with roasted green chile, and the 1984 Taco Salad made with romaine, ground beef, tomatoes, red beans, cheddar, fire roasted corn, avocado, and corn chips tossed in Catalina dressing. Entrees will include a half chicken, pork ribs, pulled pork, and smoked salmon, along with sides such as ranch beans, street corn, and pulled pork mac 'n' cheese.
And Andrea's acquired some impressive machinery to help give the new 'cue spot some cred. SmokeHaus is now home to a Camelback Smoker, was designed and owned previously by Scott Holmes of Little Miss BBQ, arguably the best barbecue spot in metro Phoenix. Holmes partnered with John Rippel of Camelback Smokers to design the mammoth machine, which has special features including the ability to navigate airflow either above or below the meat.
