Brisket Day Eve

The lower north shore's new American-style barbecue joint is giving away 500 free burgs.

Smoky Sue's – Neutral Bay's new American-style barbecue joint – is gearing up for an epic giveaway. Be one of the first 500 people to swing by at midday on Sunday, May 27, and a mighty brisket burger will be placed in your hands — for free.

Every smoky creation features a toasted milk bun packed with high-marble Black Onyx brisket, slaw, pickles and sauce. The brisket boasts a 3+ score, which means it's about as melty and oozy as it gets.

If you don't make the cut, then don't panic: the selfsame burgers will cost just 5 bucks each for the rest of the day. Plus, while you're waiting, you'll be able to kick back and listen to live music, courtesy of singer-songwriter Ashton Tremain from The Desert Sea, who've lately supported the likes of Ash Grunwald, Jebediah and The Fumes with their earthy riffs and powerful rhythms.

While you're there (and if you have the stomach space) order a round of wings with a side of brisket beans, fries and mac 'n' cheese balls, and pair it all with a pint (or two) of Young Henrys. Or organise a return trip to check out the rest of the menu, including a gigantic beef short rib, fries loaded with cheese and pulled pork or the Big Bertha — a hefty burger stuffed with brisket, lamb and pork.

Smoky Sue's giveaway will take place on the eve of International Burger Day and Brisket Day. The action launches at midday and winds down around 9pm. We're guessing there'll be queues, so roll up early, should you have your heart set on a free feast.


Smoky Sue's will be slinging 500 free brisket burgers from midday on Sunday, May 27. For more information about the new barbecue joint, head to the website.
