Southern-hemisphere barbecue, unlike its Northern brethren, distributes the smoke counterclockwise, producing more-tender meat that speaks with a non-rhotic accent. Get lost in delicious barbecued translation with today's Groupon: for $7, you get $15 worth of Australian barbecue and drink at Wallaby's Smokehouse in Lindon.
Somewhere deep in the Australian smokehouse's kitchen, the ethereal Wallaby brews up batches of a mystical elixir known as barbecue sauce made from scratch. This tongue-pleasing sauce produces a gravitational pull that attracts patrons toward slow-smoked meats available in small orders (5-ounce meat, one side) and larger orders (7-ounce meat, two sides). Meats include hand-pulled pork ($7.99–$9.99), beef brisket ($8.49–$10.49), and smoked turkey ($8.49–$10.49). Saddle up some sides on that mountain of meat with the popular smashers (potatoes), baked beans, coleslaw, fresh veggies, and more. There are also combo platters for the indecisive or those who want a multi-meat explosion. Wallaby's also serves many salads ($6.99–$9.49), salmon ($12.99), and shrimp on the barbie ($11.99).
Post sauce-session, opt for a slice of heaven-dipped and house-made berry-berry cobbler ($2.49).

- The brisket and ribs were delicious. The smashers are always perfect and their fresh vegetable medley is extra special. I'm even addicted to their bread--why is it so good? – k, Urbanspoon
