Rib Demo

Hawke’s Bay’s very own Urban BBQ Festival hits the Tōmoana Showgrounds on Saturday, November 19.

Starting from 11am, it promises to be a jam-packed day of juicy BBQ and good times.

Local legends Black Betty Barbecue bring their BBQ goodness, with robata grill masters Piku offering up their Japanese styles. They’re joined by Bareknuckle Barbeque, under new ownership and back with a vengeance, and Black Label Barbecue, making the journey down from Rotorua. Local BBQ pioneers BBQ Gourmet bring their giant charcoal kettles, and if you’ve got any more space to fill, Mr Whippy will be there to help you out.

Over on the Jack Daniel’s Demo Stage there’ll be a full line up of low and slow cooking demonstrations, from ribs to brisket, and a few other treats in between. And of course you’ll get the opportunity to taste test the goods, just to make sure those pitmasters know what they’re doing.

Speaking of tastings, BBQ experts from Weber, Traeger and Green Mountain Grills will be cooking up a storm all day, whilst you’ll be able to sample top quality Hawke’s Bay product from First Light and Matangi, along with US imports Swift Ribs over at the Cook Zone.

On the Music Stage, Dusty Rhodes & The Bluesmobile, Jack Knife Beat and Joe Cole will provide the tunes and if liquid sustenance is needed sample some fine ales from the IPA Tent or a range of tasty beverages from the Craft Bar.

The Urban BBQ Festival is an all-ages event, with under-14s free with an accompanying parent or guardian. Pre-sale tickets are available now through Eventbrite at $25 until the morning of November 19, with gate sales at the venue from 10:30am for $30.
