This year owners Andrew and Ilinka Donn-Patterson have invested in the best Texas Offset BBQ available in the country. The massive Silver Creek Smoker, 2.3 tonne behemoth, is a stand-out attraction in its own right. Andrew says they will be able to supply upwards of 1000 beef ribs, 1000 burgers and a similar number of share plates across the weekend. Lucky us!

The KVBBQ Festival knows that running out of food can be a problem for the Low and Slow BBq Caterer because you can't simply flash up another brisket in twenty minutes. So we too are excited to see their Silver Creek 'War Machine' in Kangaroo Valley.

It's Fire and Smoke, Don't Over Think It 

Andrew and Ilinka attribute their passion for BBQ from the traditional Texan Style beef brisket or beef rib and Carolina Style pulled pork. Much inspiration was taken from David Klose of Klose BBQ pits in Huston Texas who Andrew met in early 2015. The Klose motto is:

Its Fire, Smoke, Meat and Time… don't over think it!

Their traditional menu is usually beef brisket burgers, pulled pork burgers, giant beef ribs, pork rib plate as well as a share plate. They will also have a very tasty vegetarian option this year with an haloumi cheese,  rocket and portobello mushroom burger. Yum!

Good BBQ takes time, our idea for BBQ is low and slow till it's ready. We aim to put out the best quality bbq we can at any and all of our events. 

Black Iron Smokers and BBQ is a family owned business from Mt Pritchard in Western Sydney. BIS have catered for several marquee BBQ events such as Melbourne and Sydney Meatstocks as well as the Burleigh BBQ on the Gold Coast. They regularly hit the Port Mac BBQ and Blues Festival as a caterer and as a competitor. With this BBQ pedigree, along with their Jurassic sized BBQ Smoker, the Black Iron Smokers are definitely worth checking out when you're in the Valley
