WHO WE ARE
Hot Smoked is a core team of Alyson and Caroline and a tribe of many including fulfilment and packaging partners, friends, husbands and children. We have great fun working together and have established a loyal and enthusiastic customer base. Based in Devon, we draw on the region’s strong food heritage to bring the benefits of cooking with wood to back garden cooks, artisan smokeries, chefs, restaurants and even distilleries throughout the UK.
IT’S ALL ABOUT FOOD
From a love of cooking outdoors and a thirst for new cooking techniques, we discovered food smoking. We have delved deep into the world of wood smoke flavour and demonstrated how, using just a humble BBQ, you can create sensational hot & cold smoked dishes.
Alyson: Buying a hot smoker was the beginning of our food smoking journey. A move to rural Devon after a marketing career in London saw us embracing country life, growing our own veg, keeping chickens, turkeys, rare breed pigs, sheep and cattle. With excellent fresh produce to hand we experimented with our new smoker, perfecting low and slow BBQ with wonderful wood smoke infusions along with curing and cold smoking. We created Hot Smoked in 2008 as a shopfront for our foodie finds, beginning a journey into the fragrant world of woods and outdoor cooking equipment. Since winning overall Gift of the Year in 2019, we have expanded our starter gift kits, bringing delicious wood smoke to BBQs across the country!
