Turnbulls Butchers fires up for UK BBQ contest finale
Turnbull’s Butchers in Market Street, Alnwick, is going for glory in the UK final of the Butchers Q Guild's 2016 barbecue competition – the annual quest to find the undisputed BBQ kings.
Winners of the north-east regional heat have been revealed and all are now firing up to take on their colleagues from six other Q Guild regions across the UK in this month’s national finale.
UK winners in each of six BBQ product categories will be unveiled and one of them will also be crowned overall supreme barbecue champion by the Q Guild, which represents 110 top award-winning butchers from the Scottish Highlands down to the south coast.
Turnbull’s Butchers was crowned regional sausage champion with its traditional pork sausage, a tried and trusted product using meat from locally sourced Northumbrian porkers, which for many years has been an everyday best seller in the Market Street shop.
All products had first picked up top-rated gold awards, before going on to be chosen as regional champions.
Turnbull’s also struck gold with two further speciality BBQ products, its Thai Pork Burger and Beef Ravioli.
Almost 400products from Q Guild Butchers nationwide were entered for this year’s competition. The national final takes place at Eastwood Hall, near Nottingham, on Sunday, May 15, when all qualifying products will be cooked prior to judging by Richard Holden, who is widely recognised as the UK’s premier BBQ chef.
Mark Turnbull said: “Entries for the BBQ competition have increased again this year, such is the growing stature of our annual highlight. All regional winners are to be congratulated on qualifying for the national final and we wish them every success.”
The 2016 Q Guild BBQ Championships are being sponsored by industry suppliers Innovative Food Ingredients, Dalziel, DB Foods, The Dalesman Group, Scobie and Junior, and Baro Lighting.
