2 Smoking Barrels was built on three things, good meat, good timber and hard work. After travelling through the States, we found a passion for authentic Texan style barbecue. Something that at the time was scarce in Australia. It’s hard labour, definitely not for the faint of heart – you really need to love it.

We always joke that Burnsbury Hospitality was built on pork rolls but to be honest – it was!

When we introduced barbecue to the Illawarra 8 years ago on our little Yoder Wichita, it was new, a point of difference that nobody knew a lot about. From markets in a marquee – selling 100 a week, to large scale events and a permanent home base in Wollongong – selling over 2000 a week.

2 Smoking barrels is a household name throughout the Illawarra region, we love that our barbecue is approachable and loved by such a diverse clientele. An increasingly popular spot for families and large groups with a price point to suit everyone.

Our food truck is also highly sought after, known for its consistency, product and fun approach to food, it’s the perfect option for any event.

Our Hard work, no short-cut policy and consistency in product and service is what has led to our success.
