Things are heating up at the Regatta Hotel, and not just because spring is in the air. Over the weekend between Friday, September 6 and Sunday, September 8, the Toowong pub is playing host to a three-day barbecue festival. You'll eat, you'll drink, you'll watch grilling masterclasses and you'll learn a few tricks — and, in the process, you'll take your barbie experience up a notch or several.

All of the barbecue essentials will be covered, from smoking meats, to making side dishes, to rubs and sauces as well. Want to learn how to cook up the best steak you can? Whip up the perfect barbecue sauce? Pick up a few butchery basics? Then you'll be in the right spot. You can also spend time discovering all there is to know about Italian bubbles, Australian pale ales, bourbon cocktails and whisky in general — because a good barbie always comes with a few beverages. From trimming a brisket to cracking tinnies (yes, there really is a session on that), the list goes on.

If you're really serious about barbecuing, you can also sign up for an in-depth five-hour class. While attending the Regatta Barbecue Fest is free, as is much of the fun, you can show your commitment for $199, which includes three hours of drinks.

The Regatta Barbecue Fest also features a live fire precinct, live music, and a malt, bine and vine hub for satisfying your thirst.

Menu-wise, expect smoked wings, brisket burgers, pork tacos, beef short ribs and more — or, if you're feeling extra peckish, you can take part in the hot wings eating competition.
