Red Gum BBQ

Mornington Peninsula

Australia’s BBQ Mecca is the Mornington Peninsula’s coolest new BBQ and Beer Hall. With rustic country vibes, fine local wines, exceptional craft beer on tap and the best Aussie-smoked, American-style BBQ this side of the equator.

Located in the heart of Red Hill, the Mornington Peninsula’s premium foodie destination. Red Gum BBQ speaks to the country feel and atmosphere of authentic Southern BBQ. The converted warehouse space, transformed into a great BBQ hall with rustic furnishings is built from reclaimed timbers and local woods.

Red Gum BBQ offers long bench style seating (indoor/out) and a bar committed to supporting fine local wines and Victorian craft beers. The traditional Southern-style, grass-roots music playing will get ready to roll up your sleeves for some finger-licking, toe-tapping, good times.

With a focus on slow cooked, authentic Southern BBQ cuisine, meats are traditionally smoked for 12-16 hours using native Australian hardwoods in giant Texas offset steel ‘pits’. Meats are offered with traditional sides of Corn Bread, Mac n Cheese, creamy coleslaw, salads and more.

The Red Gum BBQ team believes that the time and devotion that goes into its menu is the key to its amazing food. Red Gum BBQ uses only the highest quality ingredients, uses exclusively free range meat and sources local and seasonal ingredients. The popular house-made BBQ sauce range can be purchased from the retail space along with a range of BBQ books, tools and clothing merchandise. Perfect Mornington Peninsula mementos.
