If you’ve been to any food or beer festival in Shanghai in the last year, you’ve probably heard of Preferred Beef Cut, a modest BBQ vendor churning out some righteous smoked brisket and other meats.

Well, if melt-in-your-mouth meats is what you crave, you no longer need to wait for another Beer Fest because Preferred Beef Cut just opened Country Pride at a local farm in Huacao, just north of Hongqiao airport.

Inspired by the renowned Snow’s BBQ in Texas, Country Pride is a family BBQ escape with craft beer (spoiler alert: expect lots of Side Hustle brews!), games and – of course – all the meats, cooked in four custom-built smokers.

Soft opening started on October 24, and if the meat consumed was any indication of what’s to come, cows be wary.

The menu is full on BBQ, with BBQ Platters going for RMB188 that include 150 grams of smoked brisket, 150 grams of pulled pork, 100 grams of beef sausage, four chicken wings, BBQ pinto beans, coleslaw, bread rolls and two of the yummiest BBQ sauces around – Carolina gold honey mustard and a vinegar-based brisket sauce.

Single orders of all meats are also on offer, plus a few extras like smoked pastrami and pork spare ribs. Pickles are in the works, using cucumbers and other veggies grown on the farm.

Currently, Country Pride is open every other weekend (upcoming dates include November 6 & 20 and December 4, starting at 11am), with plans being laid open every weekend.

They can seat over 100 people, making it an ideal spot for team building and private events, and they are also arranging a large Thanksgiving dinner to be held onsite. Details to come.
