Event organiser, Crispin Slee, said: “This summer, Smoke Street will be bigger and better. The menu is going to be incredible.

“More chefs will be taking part and there will be cooking over open fire pits, smokers, oil drum BBQs and Asado grills."

Included in the line-up is James Peck from Burnt Lemon Chefs, who specialises in cooking over open flames and will be cooking lamb over an Argentinian-style barbecue for the event.

Owner of street food smokehouse Broke n' Bone, Steve Mitchell, said: "I’m thinking maybe goat or boar cooked over a wood fire. It will be amazing.”
