The main barbecue festival in Russia
Sevcabel Port
10–11 July 2020
Smoke & Fire is the Russia's premier event about the barbecue culture.

The festival, first held in 2017, traditionally packs a huge area in St. Petersburg with the most popular fire cooking mechanisms of the world. At the heart of Smoke & Fire there's an ancient craft - cooking on open fire, and at the festival we present a variety of cuisines, products and styles. For just two days we are hosting the largest barbecue party in Russia and an exhibition of the latest achievements in this industry. Grills and smokers, stoves and hearths, skewers, food trucks, asado - only smoke and fire with a Gulf of Finland view! The festival is held in the "Sevkabel" space, where in 2019 we have received about 40 000 guests!

Smoke & Fire is founded by a team of Smoke BBQ chiefs from the DREAMTEAM restaurant group. Alexey Burov and Alexey Kanevsky have studied the art of barbecue all over the world from Burma to Texas. This technique has formed the base of our establishments, ready-made deli, catering and consulting services as well as our own festivals. Burov and Kanevsky are the only Russian participants in the Meatopia Festival in London.

DREAMTEAM restaurant group is already 12 years old – today in the team of Alexey Burov and Pavel Kokkov there are over 300 people. We work in six establishments in St. Petersburg: Smoke BBQ, Smokey Bones, Farsh & Bochka, Forno Bravo, Trappist, Pivnaya Karta (Beer Card); and two in Moscow: Trappist and Smoke BBQ. We stand for our sincere service, excellent drinks and perfect product. Only our own personnel work at the festival!

In our restaurants we use stationary smokers, but for the open air we have designed and constructed our own BBQ equipment. We bring to the festival our entire range of grills and smokers designed by our head chef Alexey Kanevsky, and we also build a huge BBQ street together with our smoke and fire partners.
