Smoked ribs, juicy 16-hour brisket, pulled pork and all the deliciously indulgent trimmings that come with it - need we say more? On this food tour we eat and drink our way around Perth on a progressive brunch and lunch,  tasting delicious pit smoked Bar-b-q meats and sides from three very different kitchens as well as discovering some small bars around Perth to quench our thirst.

Get to know a special corner of Perth’s foodie scene on this unique food tour that takes you on a tasting route to some of Perth's best American style BBQ smokehouses for a progressive brunch and lunch sampling delicious pit-smoked meats along with decadent sides and a specially handcrafted cocktail (or mocktail) at one of Perth’s most unique small bars. Additional drinks may be purchased along the way if desired.

Meet our local pitmasters that have trained with some of the best in the world, and learn the secrets to trimming the perfect meat. Take a look at traditional smoking techniques, and see how each chef adds his own 'flavour' and style by using different woods to impart flavour, and a secret mix of spices for their signature house-made sauces and rubs.

American barbeque is a very casual style of eating (there are no white tablecloths here!) you will need to get stuck in with your hands, cover your ribs in sauce and make new friends as you bond over a 16-hour smoked brisket. And of course, no BBQ experience is complete without all the usual suspects such as glorious Mac n Cheese, hearty smoked baked beans and a generous side of southern hospitality.

This all inclusive food tour is a great day out for a group of food-loving friends, and for visitors to Perth this is a really unique way to see the City and get to places that you otherwise wouldn't find. It's the equivalent of brunch and lunch, so there's no need to eat breakfast beforehand. One thing we absolutely guarantee is that you will not finish the day hungry!

What people say about this tour...

It was quite simply sensational. The tour is great value for money, with very generous servings of delicious BBQ, drinks, arcade games and comfortable transport all included. The highlight was the chance to tour the kitchen and speak with the chefs at one of the restaurants. Any BBQ fans absolutely need to take this tour!

If you love BBQ meats then this is the tour for you! Food was amazing and no-one was left hungry. Each venue had slight variations to their American style Bar-B-Qued meats and absolutely none of them disappointed. Paul was the perfect balance of information, engagement and fun. Great tour, impressive value for money.
~ TripAdvisor  
We have just completed this tour and wanted to say a big thank you to our fabulous host and tour guide Paul who has sourced the best BBQ houses in Perth and created a delicious and informative tour all about the art of the slow cooked BBQ. The food and drink supplied in the tour are not only delicious, they are plentiful!

Definitely a must for those that love food, this tour is great way to explore all the different BBQ food places around Perth. Paul our guide was very knowledgeable on all the great spots to eat. Great day all round, couldn't fault it!! One thing for sure you won't be left hungry.
~ Jordana, TripAdvisor  
Highly recommend this tour. Such brilliant value, great fun, learnt about the cooking methods and visited great spots with amazing food.
~ Sue, Google  
Not a tour, an afternoon with good friends, good food, and lots of learning. Paul does an incredible job making you feel like your just going around town with some buddies to have delicious BBQ food. I was the only American that day, and I really enjoyed myself and all the different local BBQ eateries. If I had time I would book all my tours through these guys, one of the best afternoons I had in Perth.
