I would say the best BBQ in Brisbane, we have travelled through the states, so always compare to what we have had, service amazing, very friendly and warm, disappointed there was no jalapeno poppers but hubby had a free shot of whisky being the Birthday Boy and cocktails were good. So here was the good and bad of the food; ribs we found there was no enough sauce and the sauce was not the hickory style which we love, rub good, brisket had the fat through, which we would've liked trimmed off, pork belly, I thought this would've cut in square pieces rather than a loin piece, liked the beans, tasty, chicken skin chips were pretty terrible, rubbery and not edible really. Another thing we noticed, there was no sauce on the side for brisket and ribs, which would've been nice. It was nice having BBQ made with a smoker rather than a gas box or combi oven.

If you are looking for a great American style slow cooked brisket then this is the spot. Not much of a view and in front of an industrial shop strip but who cares if the slowed cooked smoked meat melts in your mouth.

My partner had the rack of ribs which were tasty but the sides of slaw and mash weren’t enjoyable. The blackened fish was good but overall the food wasn’t the best value for what we paid.

We had a share plate and wish we went by the pound not half pound because it was so good! Have had the cornbread multiple times and always as good when I return. Keen for more soon!

Food was amazing. But I believe, some changes will make it Perfectly!!!
For example:
The Grilled Spiced corn: add a little bit of cheese and sauce on top
And the pulled pork was a little dry, the sauce on top was yummy. But the pieces without sauce where dry. So would be great if you guys pull the pork first and later mixed with the sauce

We ordered french fries, burnt ends, coleslaw, pickles, corn bread, Mac and cheese with Brisket and a pound of brisket.

The brisket was very dry and hard to swallow as it was from the flat end of the brisket and it seemed like it had been sliced long before it was put on the plate because it usually dries out rather quickly once its sliced.

The mac and cheese was also dry and not saucy and cheesy enough.

The coleslaw was very bland and you could only taste the vegetables as it was very earthy with very little mayonnaise.

However, we loved the corn bread. The sweetness was a nice touch. The burnt ends were tasty as well.
