BBQ Competition
Let There Be Meat
Show image

There’s a new competition in town to fill the showgrounds with smokey deliciousness and tantalise your tastebuds.

BBQ competitions are serious business and teams will come together from all over New Zealand to show that they are kings or queens of the grill, with each painstakingly perfect brisket slow-cooked overnight and served within the ten-minute judging window on the Friday of the Show. Thursday will also see a quick cook event, featuring mouthwatering steak, chicken wings and more.

Want a taste of the action? Although spectators are not allowed to try the goods, the smell will definitely get your craving for BBQ going. We will have the team from The Smokin’ Que on site selling yummy BBQ goods, from brisket to pulled pork potato boats…this is an area of the Show not to be missed!
