The Meating Place Stallholders

Smokin Hot n Saucy

 Owners, Robert and Randi Thraves are bringing traditional Texas BBQ to Hunter Valley, Australia. Robert is a bit more than just your backyard BBQ sausage sizzle chef. He loves to cook meat low and slow for hours and hours in his homemade custom-built Texas offset smoker. Rob’s wife Randi is a native Texan and has been the driving influence in their BBQ style.

Rob’s style of BBQ is Texas with a bit of Aussie touch, you’ll find him cooking meat all night at the perfect temperature with his own unique blend of spices to ensure tender juicy and tasty meat. Meat can be enjoyed on its own, in a sandwich, or even in a taco.

FogHorn Brewery

 FogHorn was established in 2014.  We genuinely wanted to bring our decades of beer-making experience, American foodie expertise and eclectic music tastes to the heart of Newcastle.

What is now a thriving restaurant, live music venue and local brewery was once another abandoned building in the sleepy CBD.  We saw the warehouse’s incredible potential to play a role in rejuvenating the city and decided to build Newcastle’s first craft brewery.  Since our beginnings, we’ve watched locals come eat, drink and play music as the city has grown livelier and livelier around us.  We’ve proudly played a part in this revitalisation.

FogHorn Brewhouse stays true to the industrial roots of Newcastle, featuring an 1800 litre brewery and four 1800-litre-serving tanks.
