Other notes

*Pork Belly category is a NON-GC Category, all usual ABA Rules apply to cooking method and presentation. Crackle is allowed provided it comes from the belly skin area.

The competition is to be held in a central location in close proximity to several licensed establishments. The event promoter will also set up a satellite bar (referred to as ‘Pig Pens’) on-site of the event. The consumption of alcohol will therefore not be permitted on site outside of the ‘Pig Pen’ area.

Security staff have been employed to patrol the area but teams are welcome to stay on site overnight in their tent area. Shower and toilet facilities will be available.

Some power will be available to teams but this will be on a first come, first served basis. Must email event organiser to arrange.

Teams to provide temporary barricade to prevent public from entering their barbeque site. This can be in the form of a table.
