logo36 teams contested the first-ever international ABA Sanctioned barbecue competition in Meatstock – Auckland.

This event was also Round 5 of the Barbeques Galore Australian Barbecue Championship series for 2017.

The Aussie contingent was high quality with BadAss BBQ, The Shank Brothers, Aussie Pit Boys and Country Boys BBQ making the crossing of the ditch to take the fight to the Kiwis.

The 48 New Zealand based judges made the call and awarded the Grand Championship to Country Boys BBQ with Aussie Pit Boys close behind for the Reserve Grand Championship.

A huge thanks to Meatstock Promoters Jay Beaumont and Simon Luke and their awesome team for pulling together another awesome event.
