This food tour is called ‘Low and Slow’ because that is the only way to get food to taste this good – cooked slowly for a long period of time. When so much love and dedication has gone into crafting the perfect piece of meat, why wouldn’t you want to celebrate it?
On this food tour we will eat and drink our way around Perth on a progressive 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.
All heavily influenced by a passion for traditional southern style smoking techniques, each chef adds his own ‘flavour’ and style by using local cuts of meat, a combination of beech, hickory and coal to impart unique flavours, a secret mix of spices and their own signature house-made sauces.
And – did you know that Perth has a chef that has a Bachelor of Barbeque Science and was trained in Kansas by the world’s most accomplished barbeque chef and pitmaster? You will get to meet him on this tour and hear how he uses his smoker to create those traditional flavours we all love.
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.
Just as you start to feel like you are heading into a meat coma, we will stop in at one of Perth’s best hidden small bars for a tasty cocktail before we continue on our way!
This 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. As we stop in each neighbourhood, your guide Paul will also point out a few other Perth hidden gems that are worth coming back to visit.
One thing we absolutely guarantee is that you will not finish the day hungry!
