SMOKE, a slow-cooked American BBQ menu and experience provides Lake House guests with the choice of a more casual dining experience in a relaxed American Smokehouse style bistro section at the Lake House Restaurant.

Ashburton’s first true American style smokehouse BBQ bistro.


Delicious and succulent 12-hour smoked cuts of meat are nurtured to drooling perfection in our 1.3 tonne, custom-built smoker with flavours imparted from West Coast Manuka and Beech and fruit woods sourced from Central Otago.


Indulge in Smoked Brisket, Boston Butt, Pork Ribs, Beef Ribs, Texas Jerk Chicken, Buffalo Wings and our homemade authentic American BBQ sauce and sides.  Plus new to the menu our ridiculously good burgers and sandwiches ie our Austin Midnight.

We often sell out, so booking is advised.

BREAKING NEWS - SMOKE IS OPENING ANOTHER RESTAURANT IN ROLLESTON IN FEBRUARY 2021.  Check out #smokerolleston on facebook and instagram to keep up with progress.
