Proof BBQ & Booze

Windsor

Proof BBQ and Booze is bringing Kentucky-style southern hospitality to Brisbane's north side with lip-smackin' American-style barbecue and bourbon whiskeys.  

Co-owners Ryan Lane (ex-Gresham) and barbecue master Michael Cameron, have transformed the iconic Harry's Diner on Newmarket Road into a cool, barbecue joint and whiskey bar with timber tables and bentwood chairs filling the cosy space, and comfy leather stools nestled against the bar.

Pull up a stool and enjoy tasty bar bites like jalapeno poppers stuffed with cream cheese and beef brisket wrapped in bacon and glazed in honey, Texas fries (deep fried chicken skins tossed n Proof's secret rub) and burnt ends - Angus smoked brisket rubbed in Proof BBQ's coffee rub and soaked in a blend of bourbon and barbecue sauces.

Everyone's favourite American food features on the menu, including buffalo wings with blue cheese sauce, mac n' cheese (smoked macaroni with 3-cheese blend topped with secret crumb), burnt end chilli beans, and juicy double beef burgers with melted cheese, bacon and barbecue sauce on a house made sweet potato bun.

The mouth-watering meats are the main attraction here though: barbecued beef brisket, beef short rib, pulled pork, half chickens, and half and full racks of pork ribs.

For dessert, there's banoffee pie served with pecan ice-cream, and home baked cheese cake with blueberries and smoked vanilla ice-cream.
