After a whirlwind of a few months since opening up in Melbourne, Bluebonnet Barbecue has teamed up with The Worker’s Club to bring live music and American Barbecue to Geelong from late March. Located on Little Malop Street, the venue was once home to an old auction house, but has since been stripped back and expanded to create a hybrid space comprising of a band room, bar and dining area and outdoor seating.
A new venue also means a new smoker and chef owner of Bluebonnet Barbecue, Chris Terlikar, is not one to disappoint. It is the third one under the Bluebonnet name and true to form has been hand built from scratch. Coming in at 3.5 meters long with a 2000 litre tank this solely wood fired smoker is big enough to fuel private catering events as well as Worker’s Club regulars.
Highlights of the seasonally changing menu at The Worker’s Club will include smoked Riverina angus brisket, smoked porter braised beef cheek and Berkshire pulled pork. Paired with creative sides ranging from guindilla, cheddar and confit garlic cornbread to apple and kohlrabi slaw the selection makes for the perfect pre gig snack or sharing platter with friends. The menu will be limited in the band room and at the bar but customers will be happy to know that the popular Bluebonnet buns, usually only available at festivals, have also been added to the menu.
