America's been getting a bad wrap lately, but if there's one thing we can all admit, it's that we couldn't live without their smokin' hot BBQ skillz. So imagine our delight when we found out an American BBQ festival was coming to Perth this April!
Taking place on the weekend of Saturday 8 and Sunday 9 April, The Yak Ales Barbecue Festival will be smoking up a storm at Crown Perth and Burswood Parklands. There will be BBQ cooking and butchery demos, a BBQ cook-off and, of course, loads of delicious BBQ eats. Two of America's BBQ heavyweights, Memphis Barbecue Co. and Sugarfire Smoke House, will be there dishing out the goods so you can get your hands on their famous whole hog or some delicious pork ribs, plus there will plenty of local BBQ kings there to give the Americans a run for their money!
If two days doesn't sound like enough time to take it all in, there will be a BBQ feast as well as a Pitmasters BBQ Class at The Merrywell on Friday 7 April so you can kick things off a little early.
What are you waiting for? Get your tickets here.
If that's not enough meat for you, don't forget there's a bacon festival coming to Freo!
