That’s right Brisbane, fire up the barbie because Brisbane’s biggest EVER BBQ Festival is back—and it's all happening this weekend!

Really ramping up in its third year, the Brisbane BBQ Festival is returning for a mammoth weekend-long BBQ cook up.

Showcasing the very best Australian and local QLD produce, providores and purveyors, the Brisbane BBQ Festival is solely dedicated to the charred, juicy meat of the humble BBQ. This is your chance to tuck in to glorious BBQ meats for two entire days. Guilt free.

From local legends JR’s Smokehouse brining their famed smokehouse, to Sydney crew Smokin Grill’s firing up their HUGE smoker, and a 10-metre coal-fired grill courtesy of Parrilla Argenchino, just to name a few, this is one backyard barbie not to miss.

Add into the mix dozens of fresh BBQ faces, from Joe’s Ribs, Ozsmoke, Sticky Fingers Grill BBQ, Smoking Gun Texas BBQ and a load more local food trucks to keep your belly full plus live music, BBQ cooking demos, Q&A panels and the infamous pitmaster competition, you’d have to have a hum-dinger of an excuse not to come along.

A few final tickets have been released (praise the lord!), so whip out the plastic and get your spot on the door. BYO wet wipes.

Jokes! Of course there’ll be wet wipes…
