The Guisborough based restaurant have brought their pop-up BBQ to Green Lane this season - and have already found love from the locals and not-so-locals for their now-famous hot dog.

If you’re a football fan well versed in the online world, you may have stumbled across a popular Twitter account called Footy Scran at some point.

Footy Scran shares photos of football ground grub from all over the globe, and last week, East Cleveland based Smokin’ Joe’s had their turn of the spotlight.

Their luscious hot dog, topped with BBQ pulled chicken and crispy onions, became an instant hit with those online, with some people even wishing to visit Green Lane to try one.

As is customary with every food item displayed on the account, Footy Scran put the hot dog to the ultimate popularity test. Over 8,000 people voted in a poll, which deemed it a hit at 87% scran.

One user tweeted his reply to the original post: “I am so, so happy about this.”

Another said: “Oh my god this is the best thing I’ve ever seen.”

Joseph Smith, of Smokin’ Joe’s, was delighted to see their produce so highly regarded.

“It was overwhelming, humbling and a real honour to see our food so well received,” he said. “Especially on a platform as big as Footy Scran.”

“We couldn’t be happier working alongside Redcar Athletic, everyone has been very welcoming and our products well received.

“Big shout out to Kevin Fryett and Ryan McKnight for getting us on board.”

Do Smokin’ Joe’s have more plans up their sleeves? The answer is yes.

“We have some exciting things in the pipeline that we can’t wait to make official, so you’ll have to keep your eyes and ears peeled for now.

“But I can confirm we will be adding some new items on to our matchday set up.”

For those in the North East, Smokin’ Joe’s dine-in is located on 2 Fountain St, Guisborough, TS14 6PP.
