Ardbeg Teams Up With DJ BBQ For Ardbeg Smoke Sessions
21st July 2020
Ardbeg & DJ
BBQ turn up the heat to launch Ardbeg
Smoke Sessions, a series of online
guides to cooking mouthwatering BBQ and
creating smoky cocktails to sip
alongside the delicious smoky dishes.
As many of us will not be venturing
much further than our own garden this
summer I thought that the peaty
whisky lovers amongst you just may
appreciate this, Ardbeg, one of the
peatiest whiskies of them all has teamed
up with BBQ expert and pitmaster DJ BBQ,
as part of the brand’s Ardbeg Smoke
Sessions which celebrates big, smoky
flavours through an online series and
Insta-grill-along which aims to bring
big, smoky flavours to backyard
barbecues around the globe.
Fuelled by their shared obsession with
smoke, Ardbeg has partnered with the
‘catertainment’ star and certified
pitmaster DJ BBQ (aka Christian
Stevenson) to create The Smoke Sessions
- an online series which offers a guide
to mouthwatering barbecue serves, and
smoky whisky cocktails.
The Smoke Sessions will give Ardbeggians
everywhere the chance to take their BBQ
to the next level, they will see DJ BBQ
apply the fundamental Laws of Smoke,
Wood & Heat to perfect BBQ dishes and
drinks created using Ardbeg Ten, An Oa
and and the recently launched
Ardbeg Wee Beastie 5 Year Old.
Ardbeg and DJ BBQ will kick off the
series this July by hosting the UK’s
smokiest virtual barbeque on Instagram
Live. The grill guru will share one of
his favourite recipes and show off his
expert cocktail making skills, whilst at
the same time spinning the decks.
Joining in the fun will be Brendan
McCarron, the Distillery’s Head of
Maturing Whisky Stocks.
DJ BBQ commented: "My smoky barbeque
recipes share so many characteristics
with the flavours of Ardbeg whisky, and
they complement each other perfectly.
The laws of wood, heat and smoke are so
important to barbecue and single malt
alike, and once mastered, you’ll become
a barbeque boss!
"The taste of braided beef fillet
alongside an Ardbeg Ten Old Fashioned is
just awesome, and a sip of hot Wee
Beastie punch with a slow smoked pork
shoulder is unrivalled!.
"Remember, patience is key to maximise
that wonderful flame-grilled flavour,
it’s only done when it’s done. The
Ardbeg Smoke Sessions series will show
you that it’s easy to go beyond the
realms of basic barbecue burgers with a
little creativity and a ton of smoky
Grillers and whisky lovers can tune in
