We are very excited, drooling in fact, at the thought of going to Meatopia this year. HotJoint has joined up with the UK’s favourite meaty-charcoaly-BBQ event and restaurant textile design people HJ Linen and we are launching an amazing range of London-inspired BBQ and kitchen aprons at the do, all available to buy at www.hotjoint.co.uk/shop.


Product 1product6Committed to everything creative, we also guest edited and helped produce the wonderful event newspaper The Meatopian. It features interviews with the Hangfire Smokehouse and the folks from Machneyuda/The Palomar, and pieces by Jay Rayner and Jose Gordon from legendary Spanish restaurant El Capricho. There’s also words from Meatopia UK’s founder Rich Turner and DJ Tom Findlay and many more.


We’ve also got some paperboys and girls showcasing our kitchenwear designs and distributing copies of The Meatopians and plenty of chefs wearing HotJoint chefs’ gear.

For more drooling, check out the following list of dishes being served up on Ssturday and Sunday: Smokestak are doing a beef brisket bun; Rankin from Smokehouse is doing ribeye with jerk marinade and beef dripping; Sahun from Quality Chop is doing Herwick lamb chop, charred baby gem and hollandaise; Duck and Waffle are doing duck wings with harissa and pomegranate … I could go on.

It’s too much. It really is off the hook. See you there (except, it’s sold out).
