Smokin the Valley Brisket Challenge was another awesome weekend of barbecue fun and brought up Round 28 of the Barbeques Galore Australian Barbecue Championships.

Huge shouts to Rollin Smoke BBQ for their second Grand Championship this year – and wow, The Meat Mistresses in their first competition together picking up the Reserve Grand Champions title. 

The brisket category scores were combined to produce the 1st and 2nd place overall Brisket Champions who were Black Iron Smokers in First Place and The Meat Mistresses Runners up.

The first-ever ABA Sanctioned Junior BBQ Challenge went down in epic style with Flynn Hogston (GC), Cooper Turner (RGC), Paige Roberts (3rd), Ethan Blanchard (4th) & Jackson Roberts (5th) taking out the top positions, the cash, some awesome trophies and schoolyard bragging rights.

A big thanks to event Promoter Grant Coleman and his crew for rocking it out in style again in 2017.
