MABEL

When Chris Terlikar isn’t building smokers from scratch, he is out hunting for once loved vintage pieces to bring back to life and one day he stumbled across a C1300 from the 1970’s sitting neglected in an open paddock. Named Mabel by its previous owners, the truck has had many reincarnations since it started life running deliveries.

Over the last few months it has been stripped back in true Bluebonnet fashion and lovingly emblazoned with barbecue mantras, hand-painted onto her once rusted panels. Mabel has already been popping up around Melbourne since her first outing at Boogie 2017!

Mabel is also available to hire for private events. For more information call (03) 9972 1815 or shoot an email through to mabel@bluebonnetbbq.com.au
