Real Wood Fired BBQ
Since humble beginnings back in 1995, John O’Brien & local restauranteur, Don Murphy, set out to provide Mudgeeraba and the hinterland a restaurant and bar serving traditional Australian fare in the cosy Queenslander known as Woodchoppers Inn.
Over the ensuing years the venue became a popular watering hole for locals and visitors alike, offering great hospitality and food.
“I remember my Dad’s 40th here 20 years ago” is often heard with Woodchoppers holding a special place in the hearts and minds of the local community.
As time moves on, John’s son, Stephen takes the helm in 2010 and in 2015 puts in our first BBQ. From backyard BBQ enthusiast, Stephen’s passion has seen us now become the Gold Coasts longest standing real woodfired BBQ restaurant.
More Art than Science
At Woodchoppers BBQ, Smoke & Grill we specialise in unique woodfired BBQ, burning real wood to create a 100% pure BBQ experience. Where possible sourcing local ingredients and creating delicious BBQ influenced by Australian flavours and those tried and tested true BBQ favourites from around the world.
Our go to BBQ are our two Yoder offset wood pellet pits. Build from solid steel in Alabama USA, our Yoders are the backbone of our pit producing incredible, mouth watering BBQ day in day out.
There is no smoke and mirrors with our BBQ, see our Yoders proudly on display at the center of Woodchoppers!

It starts with our classic 12 hour brisket and 6 hour pork ribs which are cooked low and slow – never steamed, never boiled, just 100% wood fired BBQ.
