This is Perth’s only food tour dedicated to good old American Barbecue! Smoked ribs, juicy 16-hour brisket, pulled pork and all the deliciously indulgent trimmings that come with it, need we say more...

For visitors to Perth, this is a great way to see the City from a local's perspective. As you eat and drink your way around Perth on a progressive lunch, you will find some hidden gems and explore areas that you wouldn't see on a regular sightseeing tour. On this food tour you will taste delicious pit smoked BBQ meats and sides from different kitchens as well as discovering some small bars around Perth. For locals, this is a unique and fun day out for food-loving friends!

Our tours are guaranteed to be a maximum of 12 people, so that you get a personalised and memorable experience.

The tasting route for this tour takes you to some of Perth's best American style Barbecue smokehouses. As you stop in each neighborhood, your local guide will also point out some interesting local sights and a few other Perth hidden gems that are worth coming back to visit.

The tour includes: A progressive lunch across multiple restaurants and bars with all tastings and some drinks included. You will get to taste all the pit smoked classics such as ribs, brisket, burnt ends, pulled pork, chicken, mac and cheese, slow-cooked beans, pickles, slaw and dessert. An American style cocktail and a local beer or cider are also included; and door to door transport service.

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 barbecue is a very casual style of eating. Cover your ribs in sauce and make new friends as you bond over a 16-hour smoked brisket and a generous side of southern hospitality. One thing we absolutely guarantee is that you will not finish the day hungry!

This was a very well organised tour, excellent range of venues and meats, generous portions. The venues were quite close together so quick travel times which was good. Guide knew his stuff as was the American chef we met

Great tour. Food was fantastic, Paul was very knowledgeable and got us where we needed to go with ease and the Arcade stop was an interesting diversion. The whole afternoon was awesome and I definitely didn't need dinner that night. Particularly loved Frank's and the missus has already said we're going back there
For a full refund, cancel at least 24 hours in advance of the start date of the experience.
