The core idea behind Smokin’ Soul was to create a company that would ultimately breathe a new lease of life into the townland we live in, Cloonagh. Being very proud Wexford men but being typically Irish our real passion for our county lies in our homes in Cloonagh. Smokin’ Soul begun as love affair with fabrication, food and fire. We set out on a route to bring the real ethnically diverse world of fire cooking to the general public in Ireland.
We began to experiment with techniques used around the world for cooking over open fire and we added Irish produce, an Irish twist and flavour profile to all things we did. Our current menus see us open fire cooking and hot smoking the likes of Beef Brisket, Pork Collar, Beef Ribs, Pork Ribs, Jerk Chicken, Whole Chickens, Whole Lambs, Whole Pigs, Whole Goats, Large cuts of all types beef, pork lamb and game. The list and options depending on the setting and requirements are limitless.
Growing up we would explore every ditch line, field, river, out building and abandoned dwelling house. Sometimes in the summer months these adventures could last days.
