9am - 6:30pm
On August 3 – 4, it’s not fog you’ll see rising over Burleigh…it will be smoke from 50 of Australia’s and the US’s best BBQ competition teams battling it out for the highest honour in the annual Burleigh BBQ Championships!
Using low ‘n’ slow cooking and BBQ techniques across five categories – chicken, lamb, pork ribs, beef and seafood – teams will present their plates to a panel of 50 judges for tasting.
The pit yard will be open to the public from 9am – 4pm Saturday and from 6am Sunday for you to mingle with the masters, check out some of the biggest smokers you’ve ever seen and watch the theatrics unfold.
There will also be a trade area and market stalls to suss out and purchase all the BBQ equipment you need to start smoking at home.
The best part is, once you’ve built up an appetite you can eat your fill of BBQ from authentic low ‘n’ slow barbecue food vendors parked next to the pit yard, enjoy live entertainment from amazing local musicians and visit the Burleigh Brewing bar.
Pack a picnic blanket, gather family and friends and head to North Burleigh Heads Esplanade for two huge days of BBQ and free entertainment.
