The enticing smell of smoked meats in the air with some Busta Rhymes playing in the background was the start of an amazing Saturday afternoon. I really enjoyed my recent visit at a new joint in Bondi called Two and Twelve. They're a smokehouse and grill restaurant located on Curlewis Street.
Two and Twelve has an industrial fit out with a fresh urban vibe. They specialise in deli-style sandwiches, Cajun cuisine and Southern-style smoked meats cooked low and slow. A range of meats like beef brisket, snags, pork ribs, chicken and pork belly are available.
We started with some complimentary pork crackling with gochujang mayo. The strands of crackling were perfect with tasty fatty bits! The touch of the smoky chilli salt and gochujang mayo for dipping was highly addictive!

Then the platter of smoked BBQ meats ($84) came out and it was game on! It consisted of generous amounts of beef brisket, pork ribs, smoked chicken, and Louisiana boudin. It also came with pickles, milk buns, pepper jack butter, bourbon bbq jus and other condiments.

The brisket was ridiculously melt-in-your-mouth tender, fatty and smoky. It also had nice crispy caramelised bits that added some sweetness to the brisket. It was my favourite out of all the meats. I suggest pouring bourbon bbq jus on the brisket for extra smokiness and kick.
The pork ribs meat was so tender too that they easily fell off the bones. The bbq sauce used for the ribs was tasty, tangy and sweet.
The chicken thighs and drumstick were succulent and smoky as well. I also really like that they served some of the delicious stuffing!
The Louisiana-style smoked boudin sausage had a flaky-like textured filling. This super smoky snag had a blend of duck, beef and pork.
We were so full after all of that. Sadly, our bellies didn't have room for dessert anymore. So we'll just have to return to try their ice cream sandwich right?! The awesome BBQ dishes with warm Southern hospitality style service will keep any homeboy and homegirl coming back for more! This fresh playa in the smoked bbq meats scene is definitely blazin'!
