Discover a special corner of Perth’s vibrant foodie scene on a one-of-a-kind food tour that explores the art of cooking with smoke, fire and BBQ. This progressive lunch takes you on a guided food journey tantalizing your taste buds with the rich, smoky flavours of barbecue and wood-fired cooking.

Along the tasting route for this food tour, you will visit some of Perth's most authentic American style BBQ smokehouses, to sample delicious pit-smoked Barbeque meats such as smoked ribs and slow-cooked brisket, meeting a local Kansas-trained pitmaster along the way. Gain insights into traditional ‘low and slow’ pit-smoking techniques, where each bite reveals the complexity of flavours achieved through different woods and a secret blend of spices, creating signature house-made sauces and rubs that are simply irresistible. 

This is a casual, hands-on dining experience—no white tablecloths here! Get ready to dive in with your hands, cover your ribs in sauce, and make new friends over a smokin’ feast including glorious mac n cheese, hearty smoked beans, and a generous side of southern hospitality. 

Quench your thirst at some of Perth’s most unique small bars, with a specially crafted cocktail (or mocktail), and finish your food adventure with a decadent wood-baked dessert, with its flavours enhanced by cooking over fire. 

Whether you’re a local or a visitor, this food tour offers a delicious day of indulgence. It’s an ideal way to explore hidden culinary gems in Perth, ensuring that you leave with a full belly and a deeper appreciation for the world of barbecue and wood-fired cooking. 

This is an all-inclusive food tour, equal to a full lunch.

What people say about this tour...

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.

One of the most enjoyable food tours we have ever done. Paul, our guide, was super friendly and knowledgeable. We went to some really excellent venues and ate lots of good food. Would highly recommend (just don't have breakfast before you go!).
~ Kelli-Ann, TripAdvisor  
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!
~ Michael, Google  
The food was divine at restaurants we did not know existed. As local residents it was quite the adventure.
~ Ann, TripAdvisor  
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.
