About The Beast

* The Beast is the first real traditional and authentic imported wood smoker in Hong Kong. Different from a charcoal or gas grill, the use of a smoker produces the hallmark flavors of real American-style barbecue imparted by hickory wood. The smoker is imported all the way from the family-owned American Grill Co. in Sikeston, Missouri, purveyors of some of the finest USA-built barbecue smoker ovens and air-lifted into the Smoke & Barrel space of Hong Kong.
