Beef Central, 19/01/2022

ANGUS Australia has postponed its popular barbecue competition, due to the spread of COVID 19 across the east coast.

The Verified Black Angus Beef BBQ Competition was set to take place in Armidale next month after a successful event in Albury in 2019. Organisers have pushed it back to the 26th of November.

Commercial supply chain manager Liz Pearson said while the decision to postpone was difficult, the organisation had a duty of care to ensure the safety of attendees, participants, sponsors, and staff.

“While it is incredibly disappointing that we have had to postpone the Verified Black Angus Beef BBQ Competition, the safety and wellbeing of our members, our team and the wider community is of the utmost importance,” Ms Pearson said.

“It will be fantastic to have our members and Angus producers here onsite for what will undoubtably be an exciting opportunity to network with our Verified Black Angus Beef brand ownersin November.”

Australia’s only Verified Black Angus Beef BBQ Competition will be an invitational Australasian Barbeque Alliance (ABA) sanctioned event and will host 20 of the best Pitmasters and BBQ teams from around the country in a competition for a share in over $10,000 worth of cash and prizes.

The event is open to all and will be an afternoon and evening of amazing food with even better company featuring meat supplied by the Verified Black Angus Beef brands NH Foods Australia’s Angus Reserve, Jacks Creek Black Angus and Macka’s Australian Black Angus Beef. Tickets will go on sale for the rescheduled event October 10th, 2022.
