Southern Eleven
Spinningfields, Manchester

Southern Eleven restaurant in Spinningfields, Manchester offers a ‘new style’ American BBQ experience.

Traditional, home-style favourites from the eleven southern states are reinvented with a contemporary twist – and brought to the table with the use of authentic cooking techniques.

Oklahoman wood smokers slow cook and infuse the freshest, locally sourced ingredients with a succulent, hickory flavour. While an intimate and stylish dining setting provides the perfect backdrop for enjoying our inspired menu.

Lip-smacking BBQ: how we do it...

OK, so we can’t tell you all our secrets to great BBQ food, but here’s a tempting taster…

We serve Goosnargh Chicken from Lancashire and Longhorn Beef and Rarebreed Pork from The Ginger Pig in Yorkshire. Our beef brisket and pork shoulder are firstly rubbed in the Southern Eleven mystery mix of herbs and spices, before being moved into the Oklahoman hickory wood-burning smoker. Here, the meat is cooked for up to twenty hours at a low temperature, leaving it ‘melt in the mouth’ tender, while it is infused with the delicious and smoky flavour of the Hickory pellets.

When the meat leaves the smoker it is then “pulled” apart by hand or, in the case of the beef, sliced (easier than it sounds when the meat already falls apart). It is then up to our classic BBQ sauce to enhance and intensify the juicy flavour of the meat, before it is served to a (hopefully) delighted person.

With our smaller, but no less gratifying chicken, ribs and sausage, smoking lasts for a shorter period to prevent over-cooking, before one of our mouth-watering sauces is added to sweeten the deal.

All of our food is cooked in the most traditional and authentic way using well-honed techniques, producing BBQ that delivers the maximum in taste, enhanced by a selection of delicious sides.
