We're all about good times & the best BBQ!

Owners, Robert and Randi Thraves are bringing traditional Texas BBQ to Hunter Valley, Australia. Robert is a bit more than just your backyard BBQ sausage sizzle chef. He loves to cook meat low and slow for hours and hours in his homemade custom built Texas offset smoker. Rob’s wife Randi is a native Texan and has been the driving influence in their BBQ style. They often enjoy holidays to Texas filled with lots of family and the best BBQ joints throughout the state.

Rob’s style of BBQ is Texas with a bit of Aussie touch, you’ll find him cooking meat all night at the perfect temperature with his own unique blend of spices to ensure tender juicy and tasty meat. Meat can be enjoyed on its own, in a sandwich, or even in a taco.
