BBQ Competition Time

Nigel Haworths Fantastic Food Show Barbecue CompetitionWell I’m a bit barbecued out today, spent the day at Nigel Haworth’s Fantastic Food Show at Ewood Park, Blackburn in the inaugural BBQ Competition, great fun and our dishes came out OK for a first attempt.  then it was home to cook for the shearing team, another barbecue…




BBQ Competition

We cooked Lisa Allen’s recipe for Beer Can Chicken with a hot bean salad, my take on the Ultimate Burger with added Yorkshire Chorizo of course and a borage & tomato relish and our own dish of rack of Yorkshire Dales Lamb, Nigel Haworth commented “cooked perfectly”! praise indeed but not enough to sway the judges, some great competitors produced a spread of fantastic dishes.  Really good fun and will be back to try again..

Beer Can Chicken Lisa Allen

The competition had 3 stages:-

  1. Prepare & cook “Beer Can Chicken” as recently cooked by Lisa Allen – Head Chef at Northcote on BBC2’s Great British Menu.
  2. Create your ultimate burger – ours was quality lean beef, added minced beef suet approx 10% and some finely chopped Yorkshire Chorizo, lightly seasoned.
  3. Cook a BBQ favourite of your choice – ours was Rack of Yorkshire Dales Lamb.
