Head east on May 5, Brisbanites, and you might just find yourself surrounded by barbecued foods. With around 20 different vendors cooking up a storm at the Bayside BBQ & Beer Roadshow, you can probably just follow your nose through Cleveland, straight towards the showgrounds.
An array of the city's top food trucks will be on barbecuing duties, covering everything from low 'n' slow meats to international barbecue dishes. Flaming Good Smokehouse, Twelve Boar American BBQ and Big Boys BBQ will be taking care of the former, while the likes of The Brat Mobile, Mr Burger, Fuel by Salt Meats Cheese, Wing Fix and Hangi Time fall into the latter camp. Plus, if you'd like to pick up some tips to whip up your own feast at home, there'll be masterclasses as well. Or, watch the experts compete at the Queensland BBQ Championships, which'll feature 40 teams across six categories.
Of course, this isn't just a barbecue festival. It's also beer-fuelled shindig as well. As far as brews are concerned, there'll be around 20 different bars serving up more than 100 from Pirate Life, Newstead Brewing, Mountain Goat, Brewdog and a heap of other favourites. And, there'll be markets to peruse, giant games to play and live music to listen to as well.
Tickets cost $20 in advance or $25 on the door, with the event running from 11am to 9pm.
