IT’s not uncommon to hear blokes across the district spruik their barbeque skills, however this year’s Moree on a Plate will really sort the boys from the men at the inaugural Blokes on the BBQ cook off competition.

The competition will see a number of local pairs take to the tongs to once and for all decide who really is Moree’s BBQ king.

Teams will cook off for the crowds on Weber barbeques, and will each receive a cut of meat of their choice, donated by local butchers Reado’s Meats and South Moree Butcher.

However before they get too cocky on their grills, a mystery product, sourced from one of the many local producers showcased at Moree on a Plate, will be drawn by each team on Saturday morning.

Organiser Marianne Pollock said the mystery product could be anything from Gwydir Grove Olive Oil to Lindy’s Tomatoes, and that the last minute mystery ingredient was sure to keep the boys on their toes.

“It’s going to be a lot of fun and we’re calling on anyone in the community who would like to take on the challenge to step up,” Ms Pollock said.

The winning team will receive two Weber barbeques, which have been generously donated by Mitre 10, Moree, however Ms Pollock believed bragging rights at the next backyard get together could even be prize enough.

Celebrity chef Alastair McLeod will MC the competition, with a number of local judges.

This year Moree on a Plate, Saturday May 3 at The Moree Secondary College, marks its tenth year.

To celebrate there is a smorgasbord of entertainment, from celebrity chef Alastair McLeod, singer Jess Holland, children’s healthy food advocate performers Bubble Muffin and of course over thirty producers from across North West NSW showcasing local fare.

“It’s going to be a wonderful day and it’s all coming together perfectly, there really is something for everyone and Moree on a Plate is a great way to promote not only our local producers but the wonderful community in which we live,” Ms Pollock said.

The Blokes on the BBQ competition, proudly supported by B&W Rural, will begin at 2.30pm during the festival and there are still a number of places available to compete.

Entry is $200, for further enquiries please email or for more information on the festival see or Facebook.
