Brisbane welcomes its first Low & Slow BBQ Festival
Carnivores will assemble in South Brisbane this weekend to celebrate the beautiful brilliance that is the barbecue with ice-cold beer and slow-cooked meats.
The grand old Aussie tradition, the barbie, is taking on a whole new meaning this weekend as the city prepares to chow down at the inaugural Brisbane Low & Slow BBQ Festival. Food trucks are firing up the grills and local breweries are chilling the beers in finger-licking anticipation.
Swing by Wandering Cooks in South Brisbane between 12:00 pm and 10:00 pm this Saturday July 18 and Sunday July 19 to find food trucks, pop-up bars, market stalls, workshops, competitions, live entertainment and barbecue and beer matching. Don’t miss the chance to see eight of Australia’s leading barbecue teams go head to head over the wood-fired pit as they spend 24 hours perfecting slow-cooked ribs, brisket, pork and chicken in the 2015 Brisbane BBQ Championships watched over by the Australasian BBQ Alliance. A range of masterclasses and workshops will share a range of skills from butching to slow-cooking and smoking, making pickles and preserved condiments, and even how to become a qualified barbecue judge. Head to the Wandering Cooks Marketplace to ask all of your burning barbecue questions and purchase meat rubs and condiments.
