Round 8 of the Barbeques Galore Australian Barbecue Championships – Just Smokin’ @ the Roundabout Inn, Gloucester – was run and won on the weekend of the 14th & 15th May 2016.

A huge thanks to Dion and the team at the Roundabout Inn Gloucester for putting on a great show and supporting the ABA and the competing teams so well.

The very awesome Weber Kettle Club were the victors picking up their first Grand Champion title in a very high quality field.

Congrats to runners up Country Boys BBQ for a consistent effort across all categories. All teams (except Piggy Butt Brain) did really well in the near freezing conditions during the night and posted some great overall scores which will contribute to the Championship Series.

In a 10 team field, the top 8 teams were only separated by 31 points which indicates just how close these competitions are now becoming.
