American barbeque (or "barbecue" if you want to be really authentic) is a relatively new kid on the Melbourne dining block, but it’s a traditional method of cooking that's had people licking their fingers for centuries.

When meat (vegetarians need not apply) is cooked this long and slow, there’s only one result: charred, succulent and profoundly flavoursome. Don’t forget a side of pickles, potato salad or slaw.
