Carnival Magic is getting a new casual open-air eatery – a BBQ smokehouse. Celebrity chef Guy Fieri, member of the American Royal National Barbecue Hall of Fame, is designing and supervising the very new “Guy’s Pig & Anchor Bar-B-Que Smokehouse”. The eatery features its very own traditional wood smoker that has been installed during the last drydock. The menu contains smokehouse favorites such as bone-in, dry-rubbed, slow-smoked and pulled pork, dry-rubbed blue ribbon chicken, smoke sausage and low-slow cooked rounds of beef.
Guy’s Pig & Anchor Bar-B-Que Smokehouse also features Fieri’s own unique take on traditional side dishes with deliciously creative offerings like Mac Daddy Mac n Cheese, Old Skool Potato Salad, Scratch-Made Slaw, Collard Greens with Smoked Turkey, and Molasses Baked Beans with Bacon and Burnt Ends. All items at Guy’s Pig & Anchor Bar-B-Que Smokehouse will be available free of charge.
Diners can spice up their dishes with Fieri’s signature BBQ sauces, including Award-Winning Brown Sugar (sweet and sticky), Kansas City (smoky and sweet), and Sriracha BBQ (spicy and tangy) and Carolina #6 (tangy with sweet heat). A hot sauce bar, as well as a wide range of ice-cold beers and sodas, will be available, as well.
Guy Fieri: “Everyone knows that it takes the finest meats cooked ‘low and slow’ to create truly righteous mouth-watering barbecue. My new ‘Pig & Anchor’ eatery on Carnival Magic is gonna be off the hook! Be sure to grab lots of napkins — it’s gonna get messy!”
“Guy has been a wonderful partner and we can’t wait for our guests to enjoy all the incredible offerings at his Pig & Anchor Bar-B-Que Smokehouse which we’re sure will be a huge hit with Carnival Magic guests,” said Christine Duffy, president of Carnival Cruise Line.
The new eatery will be open between noon and 2:30pm on sea days only. It is located on the promenade deck so that people can walk by and enjoy the outdoors. The cost of food is included in the cruise fare.
