Dubai’s BBQ scene is about to get hotter! From Jordan to Dubai, The Pit is bringing traditional American BBQ soon to City Walk.

The Pit – House of Barbecue has officially opened its doors in City Walk, Dubai this month. Championing high-quality smoked meats, bursting with flavour, and one-of-a-kind fabricated smokers, The Pit is set to wow guests with an outstanding selection of barbecued dishes and unparalleled service reminiscent of the offerings presented at its flagship restaurant in Jordan. Are you ready to get your hands dirty? 

The Pit was founded by entrepreneur Ghaith Saadeldin, in 2018. Established in Amman, Jordan, the venue started as a 28 square meter, hole-in-the-wall restaurant serving up slow-cooked meats of Lamb and Beef, primarily to friends and neighbours. By 2019, its growing popularity propelled Saadeldin to set up in one of the city’s busiest districts, Abdoun Al Shmali, filled with tourists and locals alike – now considered the flagship restaurant in Amman, seating up to 60 guests. 

The brand’s Pit Masters feel the recipes, they don’t just follow them and this is evident in the way each piece of meat is cooked. Low and slow is the game at The Pit, with true craftsmanship at the forefront of their smoking process. The Pit’s Pit Masters are real artisans, perfectly managing the fire and changing temperatures inside the smoker, and taking into account the different smoking processes per cut of meat. For example, diners can expect chicken items to be smoked for at least four hours, while full briskets can take up to 22 hours.

Those familiar with the brand along with meat enthusiasts alike will be delighted to see menu items such as Smoked Brisket Slices, Short Ribs, Burnt Ends, Lamb Shanks, Lamb Necks; as well as hearty sandwiches such as Triple B, Pit Roast, House Burger, and the Chicken Fiesta Sandwich.

Ahmad Al Dada, Managing Partner of The Pit – House of Barbecue in Dubai, comments, “This is a pivotal moment for us at The Pit. Since its inception in Amman, people have loved the food and unparalleled services we provide, which is a true testament to our teams’ passion and growth mindset. We are looking forward to being able to share our dedication to providing melt-in-your-mouth, top-quality smoked meats, and our love for getting our hands dirty this November.”
