The CHOOFAS Story

The CHOOFAS Story

After years of trial and error emulating the flavours and tastes of smoked meats savoured on his many business trips to the US, Scott believed he had developed his unique Dark Dry Rub and Sauces to a stage where they would readily appeal to the discerning Australian palate.

Scott designed a commercial size smoker which would give him not only the capacity but the infinite temperature and smoke control required to ensure the continuity of flavours and tenderness for his beef, pork and chicken and in November 2015  CHOOFAS SMOKEHOUSE & BBQ at Tweed Heads was opened.

Wanting to combine his passion for fishing, the freshest seafood and his love of American Style BBQ Meats, CHOOFAS SMOKEHOUSE & SEAFOOD 120 Marine Parade, Coolangatta was opened in June 2016 and the Tweed shop subsequently closed. Bringing a totally new alfresco dining experience to the beachfront, CHOOFAS has the capacity to seat up to sixty guests and offers great views up the Gold Coast.

With the business expanding and wanting to offer all weather dining, on the 20th September 2019 CHOOFAS SMOKEHOUSE & SEAFOOD 150 Griffith Street was opened (just around the corner).

Griffith Street has the capacity to seat up to 140 guests and has private areas available for functions and parties.

Both venues offer table service and Takeaway and feature CHOOFAS HORN BAR.
