Vancouver Canadians bring a bit of the American South to Nat Bailey with Rosie’s BBQ & Smokehouse

    1 of 3 2 of 3

      Vancouver Canadians baseball games are about to get a distinctly American South flair at the concession stands this season.

      Rosie’s BBQ & Smokehouse has teamed up with the Cs and its food services team at Nat Bailey Stadium to offer three new menu items.

      The Third Base Burger and the Briskets Nachos will both be based around Rosie’s signature 4 AM brisket. The Nat Stack Burger, meanwhile, will combine both brisket and pulled pork.

      The barbecue comes from Hank, a 19-foot, 500-gallon smoker muled up from Texas. For those who like to know where their meat comes from, Rosie’s head chef Karl Gregg has partnered with 63 Acres Beef to create custom butchering specs.

      Started by Gregg as a food truck after the dissolution of his Big Lou’s Butcher Shop in Railtown, Rosie’s has become a city favourite for not only its brisket and pork, but ribs, jalapeño-cheddar sausages, and southern-style sides like slaw, smoked beans, and cornbread.

      Look for the latter to also be available at Nat Bailey Stadium this Canadians’ season, although not at the concession stand. This Saturday Rosie’s will roll Hank into the Nat Bailey parking lot for a tailgate party. And, as sure as baseball is the national game of our neighbours, nothing says America like tailgating and a smoker the size of Houston.
