It’s all about smoke on the water and meat on the beach, as two days of competition BBQ once again hits Burleigh in August. Watch some of Australia’s best BBQ teams battle it out over two days, with 20 hours to cook and five meat categories to be handed in at different times. Experienced judges and newly-trained locals will do the scoring. Bring your picnic blanket and kick back to the live tunes in the park throughout. Authentic BBQ vendors in attendance. Trade areas will complement the beach pathway opposite the competitors. Free entry for the public. The BBQ competition will be held at North Burleigh Beach on 5 and 6 August.
