logoRound 12 of the 2016 Barbeques Galore Australian Barbecue Championships, the Burleigh BBQ Festival saw 40+ teams hand in across 5 categories including everyone’s favourite – Seafood – in what was an incredibly close top 10 finish.

Victorian team Rub Won Out, finished on top to pick up their first Grand Championship trophy with BLVD Restaurant BBQ taking home another Reserve Grand Championship to add to their impressive run over the last 12 months.

Heading into the back end of the Championships for this year, quite a number of teams have qualified for a National Ranking having competed at 3 or more events already this year. After Round 12, quite a few have started to improve on their overall tally by dropping their worst Rounds and are pegging their way up the leaderboard in doing so.

Top spot remains deadlocked and it’s a case of who blinks first between The Smoking Hot Bro’s and Double Barrel BBQ. Can one of these teams claim outright first place or will the current leaders be knocked off by either BLVD Restaurant BBQ and/or Suck Knuckle Smokers who have the leaders well in sight and within striking distance?

We wait, we watch.. We will see.
