Located just outside Burford in the rolling Cotswold countryside, Upton Smokery specialize in Smoked Meats, Smoked Fish, Biltong and Seasonings of the highest quality.
Smoking meat and fish is a method of preparing meat and fish which originates in prehistory. The purpose was to preserve these protein-rich foods for long periods . There are two mechanisms for this preservation: dehydration and the antibacterial properties of phenols and in the absorbed smoke.
Nowadays smoking is more about adding flavour and, much like cooking, the art is finding the right balance between the smoke, salt and meat flavours whereby no one part overpowers the others.
Our process may be relatively simple but we believe that our products are.......seriously good !
