Did you know that our little town of Port Macquarie plays host to an annual Blues & BBQ Festival? Created by local lovers of everything smoked, slow cooked, and flame-grilled, the festival has been running successfully since 2014. From humble beginnings, the festival grew year on year, from just 20 teams to nearly 100! Each year, BBQ enthusiasts from around Australia converge to compete for the title of best BBQ crew, as they go head to head in the Buffalo Trace Australian Barbecue Wars. The event is sponsored by Buffalo Trace Kentucky Straight Bourbon Whiskey – what a match!
Across the two-day event, fiercely competitive teams go hard in a ‘grilling’ competition, officially sanctioned by the Australasian Barbecue Alliance. Mark our words, this is serious stuff and the teams pull out all stops to impress the judges!
