Low & Slow American BBQ is a familiar and highly popular food vendor for many who go to the Fork on the Road food truck festival. With flavoursome food and signature dishes made from pulled pork and slow cooked beef, the Low and Slow food truck is also often seen at the Wheatsheaf Hotel and other events in Adelaide.

Originally started in 2013 by friends Angus Henderson and Angus Kiley, Low & Slow American BBQ was their brainchild after taking a road trip through the United States. On their return Angus Henderson operated a food truck calledLittle Big Cheese Co briefly before re-badging it to the current name. With a lot of hard work and experience under their belt since then, Angus & Angus recently won the Pitmaster Grand Prize at the Creekside BBQ Battle run by the Australasian Barbecue Alliance.

However food trucks operate in a fragile environment, one that has been under threat from some vested interests in the Adelaide City Council recently. The market has become increasingly regulated, with higher fees, restrictions on location, and reduced operating hours permitted.

Some time back the innovative Burger Theory food truck took the leap and opened a bricks and mortar business in the East End in Adelaide as well as running their food truck. Rumours abounded that Low & Slow American BBQ were also looking to do the same - and the news is out now.

The Location of the Low and Slow American BBQ Restaurant on Commerrcial Road Port Adelaide


The guys from Low & Slow have managed to secure a centrally located shop front on Commercial Road in the heart of Port Adelaide with the assistance of Renew Adelaide. It's right next door to the Lighthouse Hotel and it opens on November 25 as the Low & Slow American BBQ Restaurant. Working together with a new business parter and old friend Jim Morrison, the Anguses are starting a whole new journey.

The food served is from an American BBQ menu, with meat from the pit sold at prices per 100g. With pulled pork, brisket, smoked cheese kransky and ribs on offer, this is a place that will feed you well if you're hungry.

Expect other daily specials such as chicken maryland, turkey breast, wings or fresh local seafood. Eat the meat in a roll or take a tray of smoked meat, sides and pickle as is common in the U.S. The sides include the popular slaw and potato salad, together with new menu choices like cheesy grits and cornbread, smokey beans and mac'n'cheese. While pulled pork will still be available, the meat plates are rapidly becoming more popular at Fork on the Road.

The Low and Slow American BBQ Restaurant in Port Adelaide is licenced with a range of tipples from SA's newest breweries and best wineries. Most are locally sourced but a select few originate from interstate and America as well.

A comprehensive study was done of all food outlets between Hutt St, West Terrace, South Terrace, O Connell and Melbourne to gain feedback on proposed changes to regulations regarding the food trucks. In some cases it's now actually cheaper for new ones coming into the market as this is seen as a way of them establishing a name for themselves. I think it's a win, win when someone can successfully make the transition between mobile food to bricks and mortar. Keep up the good work Adelaide by giving us lots of choice and quality at competitive prices.
