Date Night in Waterloo: Lancaster Smokehouse & George Canyon – Hee Haw!

Date Night in Waterloo:This week’s date night is a little bit country. Let’s start with a southern inspired pit barbecue restaurant situated in an historic landmark that was the Lancaster Tavern – let’s get hog wild at the Lancaster Smokehouse. The Corrigan Family purchased it as an extension of their first restaurant, Hog Tails BarBQue, inspired by their experiences riding their Harley (Hog) and visiting real honkey tonk juke joints and back road Barbeque shacks throughout the Southern United States.

At the Lancaster Smokehouse the mission is a simple one: keep it local, fresh and homemade. Everything is made from scratch including their sauces, dressings and even the mayonnaise!

The meats are locally sourced from Ontario family farms, many of them are in Waterloo County and Mennonite owned. The Chefs shop the local farmers markets for the freshest produce.

Authentic? All of their Southern ingredients are sourced directly from suppliers across the Southern United States from the Louisiana Gourmet Popcorn Rice grown by Hampton Campbell and his family in Gueydan LA – to the artisanal corn grits hand milled by Glenn Roberts from Anson Mills in Columbia SC – to Slap Ya Mama Cajun Seasoning blended by the Walker family of Ville Platte LA. Even the shrimp are the finest wild caught Gulf white shrimp.
