Great Dux Brewing Co BBQ Bake Off

A sumptuous array of BBQ dishes were cooked as part of the 2011 Dux Bewing Co BBQ Bake Off held at Broken River on Sunday 25th September.

The BBQ area on Palmer Lodge deck was centre-stage for this annual event. Contestants had 15 minutes to produce a tasty BBQ dish using 5 ingredients or less. Dishes were judged on taste, presentation and creativity. The less-than spring-conditions (namely falling snow) did not deter the BBQ chefs from producing some mouth-watering and creative dishes for this years event.

The top prize went to John Newell for his steak dish accompanied by apple, broccoli, onion and garlic served on toast.

Many thanks to the Dux Brewing Company for sponsoring this event, to the judges Dicky, Guiliana and Gerard and of course to our fine line up of participants. Despite the snowy conditions everyone had lots of fun and have already started thinking what they'll cook next year!

Broken River has a long-standing tradition of barbequing with many fine BBQ chefs amongst it's ranks - next year we hope to add a junior section to this competition.
