Mr. Red’s Smokehouse to debut May 13
Try “Smoked Cardinal” during the St. Louis series
CINCINNATI (May 10, 2011) – The grand opening of Great American Ball Park’s newest themed dining destination Mr. Red’s Smokehouse is scheduled for Friday, May 13 when the Reds play the St. Louis Cardinals.
Mr. Red’s Smokehouse will serve savory smoked meats such as beef ribs, turkey legs, chicken wings and pulled pork sandwiches along with corn on the cob, macaroni & cheese and creamy coleslaw.
Inspired by barbecue shacks throughout the country, Mr. Red’s Smokehouse has been constructed from repurposed and locally-sourced materials such as rough-cut oak barn siding, reused industrial lumber logs and salvaged steel support columns.
Just like back in the day when smokehouses were made from whatever materials were available, Mr. Red’s Smokehouse keeps that authentic feel with a bar made of polished concrete set on strapped wood barrels and beer kegs on ice in a bath tub salvaged from a renovated Over-The-Rhine building.
Located at the end of the first base concourse overlooking the Ohio River, fans can enjoy the smoked meats at high-top wooden tables or belly-up to the bar and enjoy a cold beer.
Representatives from the Reds and Delaware North-Sportservice researched the best smoking techniques and adapted the best recipes from the region to develop the menu.
The menu offerings at Mr. Red’s Smokehouse include:
- Smoked Beef Ribs
- Smoked Turkey Legs
- Smoked Pulled Pork Sandwich
- Smoked Chicken Wings
- Corn on the Cob
- Macaroni & Cheese
- Creamy Coleslaw
- Domestic and craft beers
Rotating Menu Items such as “Smoked Cardinal”
New menu items will be featured each homestand tied to a visiting team and its regional cuisine beginning this Friday with the addition of Smoked Quail to the menu, being playfully named “Smoked Cardinal.”
