Restaurants serving up barbecues from all over the world

When most of us think of a barbecue, our minds go straight to the four-burner hot plate that sits on our back deck and doesn’t get used for eight months of the year. In reality, there are many ways to barbecue food to make the most of this slow process that adds a smokey, delicious flavour to the food. While Australia is renowned for its love of barbecues, plenty of other cultures also barbecue their food for this smokey, rich flavour. If you’re after a taste of another culture and some delicious grilled food, check out these incredible restaurants in Townsville serving up barbecued cuisine from all over the world.
