Carribean BBQ & Grill

A blend of traditional American BBQ technique with Caribbean spice and ingredients
Our Story

Welcome To the Smoke Shack

Established in 2017, Old Kent Smoke Shack is not just BBQ; its not just Caribbean food; it is a mouthwatering blend of traditional American BBQ technique with Caribbean spice and ingredients.

Cooked slowly over fruit wood at a low temperature to bring out the best flavours from our produce.

We are based in to the Old Kent Market in Margate,  so why not pop in for some delicious Caribbean food to takeaway or eat-in. 

Oxtail and Butterbeans

Succulent braised oxtail and butterbeans in our special spicy gravy, served with peas and slaw.

Smoked Jerk Hot Wings

Our tasty hot wings are wood smoked and marinaded in our own jerk rub. Try them hot and dry or covered in our homemade bbq sauce.

Curried Jackfruit & Okra

This is a vegan version of our curried goat, made with jackfruit and Okra. Many folks say that jackfruit tastes just like pulled pork.

Smoked Beef Brisket

Smoke Shack’s cherrywood-smoked, slow-cooked beef brisket.

Ackee & Saltfish

Sauteed Saltfish with Ackee in a spicy and rich onion and sweet pepper sauce. (suitable for pescatarians)

Smoked bbq St Louis Pork ribs

“We will be back”

We came here on a day trip from London and just loved the atmosphere inside. We had jerk chicken and a couple of beers from the bar next door. Will be back when we next visit Margate
