Smithfield Foodservice continues to innovate traditional BBQ offerings with the introduction of two new Smoke’NFast products: Farmland Smoke’NFast Roasted & Seared Chicken and Farmland Smoke’NFast Smoked BBQ Pork Belly. These new products deliver the authentic, slow-smoked flavors of BBQ for chefs to incorporate into their menu applications without having to put in the hours and labor to season, slow-roast, and smoke raw meat.

The Smoke’NFast line features fully cooked products that boast quality flavors and quick preparation, saving operators time and money on back-of-house operations. Chefs can heat and serve the product and incorporate it into a variety of different applications, using their own signature flair.

The Smoked Pork Belly is made from squared, center-cut, ultra-trimmed, uncured pork belly that is dry-rubbed with BBQ seasoning and smoked to deliver rich, hickory-smoked flavor.

The Roasted & Seared Chicken is made from 100% boneless, skinless chicken thighs. It is tumble marinated and then flash fried to sear. After searing, it is vacuum-packaged and cooked sous vide until tender.

“It is our understanding that operators want to keep their menu competitive, but staying up-to-date takes a lot of time for many of them. To help chefs maintain their creativity, we need to save them some time in the kitchen. Smoke’NFast allows operators to create inspiring menu options in a limited amount of time,” says Chip Morgan, director of marketing, Foodservice and Industrial Marketing at Smithfield Foods. “Our goal with Smoke’NFast is to empower operators to create great meals with ease.”
