Eastern based butchers to compete in finals of National BBQ Awards
Three top East of England butchers have made it through to the finals of the National BBQ Awards, which are held annually by the prestigious Q Guild of Butchers to celebrate the very best butchery items for barbecuing.
Q Butchers from across the East of England were invited to enter the regional round of heats to determine who would have their products represented in the six award categories (naked rump steak, pork sausage, speciality sausage, beef burger, speciality burger and overall barbecue product) at the final in St Albans, Hertfordshire on 13 May 2018.
Three butchers came out on top, taking two categories each. Archers Butchers in Norwich, won the pork sausage, and speciality BBQ product categories (with its Teriyaki Beef Kebabs); Bradwell Butchery won the naked rump steak competition and took the speciality burger category (a Venison & Pork Burger); while Walter Smith Fine Foods won the remaining beef burger category and speciality sausage (with a St Ives Sizzler).
Gold and silver awards were also given out to recognise the quality of those remaining products entered by butchers in the area.
The three regional winners will now go on to the finals to compete in their categories nationally and for the overall prize of Supreme Champion.
The Q Guild currently has over 100 members, and is a seal of excellence representing an elite group of the finest quality independent meat retailers in Britain.
