About The Smoke BBQ

The American food trend that has swept the globe in the last few years has been nothing short of remarkable, and it seems like it came from nowhere. The Smoke BBQ in Brisbane’s New Farm is O.G. – they’ve been smoking, frying, grilling and more down in the Merthyr Village Shopping Centre on Merthyr Road since 2006, well before the trend kicked in. If you make the journey to this part of the CBD, you’re going to be spoiled by their selection of American-style smoked meats and chicken wings: so book a table now.

Further Information

The smokehouse is an iconic of American cuisine – particularly in the South, where barbecue is king – and it is becoming ever more popular outside of the US of A as well. Australia is never far behind the States in picking up on a food trend, and at The Smoke BBQ, they have gone one step further than the average American joint. Head chef Steve Johnson has imported a smoker direct from the old country and installed it on Merthyr Road in Brisbane’s New Farm, where they put it to great effect.

The Smoke BBQ deals predominantly in, well, smoked meats and barbecue, but there is far more to their repertoire down on Merthyr Road in New Farm. They offer pulled pork, beef brisket, ribs and hickory chicken, of course, but they have other American classics as well, such as hurricane wings, buffalo wings and shrimp to start, as well as fries, mac’n’cheese and corn on the cob to go on the side. Book your table at The Smoke BBQ in the Merthyr Village Shopping Centre in New Farm for one of the best American meals in Brisbane.

Watched the food channel all day my mouth was salivating and was not disappointed when I arrived at The Smoke BBQ. Read a few bad reviews so naturally was a bit sceptical but boy was it good. Great service, Friendly Staff, Beautiful Food, Good Atmosphere altogether perfect BBQ experience. Even got to take home the leftovers for Brioche Buns today. Don't listen to the reviews and give it a go guys, everyone has a different opinion.

The Smoke is always a feast of Biblical portions, and something you should walk off for quite some kilometers! The place is small and the staff work hard and the quality of the food is consistent. I have been here many times and I have felt welcome but not to linger-it's not that sort of place as your seat is coveted by the next lot. In winter they have a bit more difficulty keeping the food warm, but nobody seemed to be bothered. The previous time I went it was Bastille Day, so I took a bottle of French wine but they quite firmly said no BYO. Hmm. Last night it was American Independance Day but there were no festivities to speak of, which I thought a bit sad. So, baseline, excellent, hearty food, service OK, venue OK, price OK. You should go.

I hadn't eaten there for about 6 years, and I always loved their ribs, slow cooked for 18 hours, so I was looking forward to enjoying a meal there... well... there were no beef or lamb ribs on the menu, sold out apparently, and I was there at 6.30pm... so I tried the pork ribs which unfortunately was very dry, in fact it was dried out and almost impossible to eat without washing it down with a beverage, which took forever to arrive, as did the main meal. The second round of drinks which I ordered at the conclusion of the entree didn't arrive until I'd almost finished the main course. It was also a very noisy place, akin to a German beer hall in October, hard to have a conversation with people only centimetres away. It was also considerably dearer than my last visit, too dear for what was on offer. So my candid opinion is, it's expensive, food was poor quality, the service was bad and it's not a nice quiet or relaxing environment to enjoy a meal. Very disappointed and won't be going back, will try out another rib restaurant in future.

The food is absolutely amazing. Meat tender and well flavoured. Chicken moist and perfect. Salad fresh. Chips coated in something crazy good. Try the cee-gars as a starter, they were amazing. 2 person indoor Tables a little too close together. Tables themselves are small. Not very good for dates. Very hard to have a conversation without being listened in on. Could hear every word from the table next to us. Be better with a larger group. We will try an outdoor table next time for even a small amount of privacy. Otherwise perfect

The restaurant is neat and tidy but in a worn condition. Some of the tables squeak and lean and the seats very worn. The food for the most part is very well cooked and flavoursome. Servings are quite large. The service we had was good. We didn't get interrupted every 5 minutes while we were in the middle of eating (which is a pet hate). They have doggy bags to take your left over food home. Wasn't too hard to find a park in a nearby street in the early hours of the night.

As usual, Smoke BBQ provided incredibly tasty wings, loaded fries, and ribs. The blue cheese sauce for the buffalo wings is sublime and there is a wide selection of American beers which will keep any beer lover happy. As a fan of a good IPA, Smoke BBQ definitely delivers. Be sure to go with an empty stomach, serving sizes are generous and you'll want to finish everything you order because it tastes so great.
