The Southern-inspired joint on Campbell Lane, Little India does do refined offerings — but its an understatement to say Meatsmith is huge on hearty food.

This smokey-good joint uses traditional American methods to smoke and slow roast the meats at low temperatures, and post a lengthy cook of several hours — the meat is left tender and bursting with flavour. Utilising only US beef, popular dishes here include; American burgers, homemade Smoked Beef Chilli Nachos, US Prime Beef Brisket (popular with diners for tender, juicy meet that falls of the bone) and the Chux Hog (signature pulled-pork sandwich). Beyond the generous portions that make this smokehouse a must-try, Smokey’s offers a great cocktail menu and beers in a laid-back, fuss-free environment.

The Texas BBQ feast holds two key inclusions in the cooking process: using a signature (secret) spice rub seasoning on high-quality meats, before they pass a 16-hour cook (low and slow-smoked) in their custom-built A.N. Bewley smoker from Dallas. Being proud owners of the first Dallas smoker in Asia and cooking just like the pit masters do in Texas — Deckers uses only wood cooking to produce the finest meat dishes. It’s almost guaranteed that you’ll leave this place stuffed to the core.

Think big Southern Pride American smokers, think Blacksmith, think meat...that's what to expect at Meat Smith.

Meatsmith is an 85-seated casual diner (54 seats inside and 31 seats outside), with bench seating and communal tables.

The restaurant has a fun atmosphere, so you can eat, drink and unwind listening to rockabilly; smoke house blues and California rock.
