Flaming Coals at MeatStock Melbourne 2017

If you couldn't attend the Melbourne MeatStock BBQ Festival last weekend, you missed out on an amazing weekend! While it was pouring with rain during the set-up, thankfully we had marvellous weather. Some of the main attractions included the BBQ competition sanctioned by the Australasian BBQ Alliance, Butcher Wars, Barber Wars, bands playing live on stage, BBQ masterclasses and of course more BBQ than you could ever imagine eating in one day!




For those of you who missed out, don't worry, we pulled together a few of the event highlights to share with you all. And if you're in Sydney, Meatstock will be happening all over again on 6th/7th May. If you're not already following our Facebook page, head over the BBQ Spit Rotisseries Facebook page and check out the live videos we posted of our meat smoking and product demos over the weekend.

Our team did an amazing job on the weekend with Cam doing lots of demos and talking people through the meat smoking process, Gerardo capturing the masterclasses on Facebook live and Jarrod talking people through all the spits and meat smokers we had on display. All demos were posted on our FB page so head on over and check them out.

I had the privilege of tasting some amazing BBQ put up by a couple of the BBQ teams we sponsor, Stick Pits BBQ and Moist BBQ. Both teams cook on the Flaming Coals Offset Meat Smoker with Sticky Pits BBQ taking out the prestige title of Reserve Grand Champion at the Yaks BBQ Festival earlier this year.

At this event, Moist BBQ did well and came in 2nd in the burger category and 8th in the pork ribs category, both cooked on the Flaming Coals Offset Meat Smoker

While both teams didn't quite fair as well as they did at the Yaks BBQ Festival in February, they handed in some outstanding boxes and did us proud.

As you may have gathered, we're all passionate about barbecue and love helping as many people as we can. If you're interested in getting into meat smoking and not sure where to start, give us a call, or pop into either Seaford or Moorebank and we'll have a chat. We have started holding BBQ Masterclasses in both stores so make sure you follow our Facebook page to be kept in the loop when the next one will be.

We also have a spit roasting recipes guide and a smoking recipes guide to help newbies get started.
