It’s time to relax in an awesome atmosphere with one of the best in the business. Don’t waste money learning how to cook inedible competition BBQ, join Pitmaster Steve in his own backyard, themed as a ‘backyard BBQ shindig’ learning how to cook BBQ the entire family can actually enjoy! We will have a heat source around, hay bales and even a SLUSHIE MACHINE to really give it that Backyard BBQ feel. BYO beers. Of course, a selection of rubs will be available to purchase on the day. 

Your host, Steve Hellyer is a long time Pitmaster, having learnt the art of smoking meat long before the ‘craze’ hit Australia and amongst one of the pioneers of the Australian Low & Slow BBQ movement, also creating and running one of the countries largest online Low & Slow communities. After being mentored by Australian based native Texans, Steve moved on from cooking recreationally to begin running his own very successful BBQ catering business and food truck, earning himself many accolades for his slow smoked meats. 

Having cooked for quite literally tens of thousands over 5 years at both small and some of the largest festivals in the country, Steve decided a quieter life was for him so he retired the truck and retired the commercial smoker in lieu of cooking recreationally. Steve now loves passing on the many, many years of smoking experience he holds to keen enthusiasts. You will find Steve knowledgable in all aspects of smoking tender, succulent meats. 

Tickets are just $95. 

No difference in tickets here, one price. You’re welcome to arrive the night before (at 10pm) and even bring a swag if you would like to cook the long haul with Steve.
