The final results for 2016 were released by the Australasian Barbecue Alliance back on 18th November 2016. The last sanctioned Low and Slow Barbecue comp of the year was in Kangaroo Valley and saw the leaderboard have a major shake up right when it mattered most. 

It was a massive year for Competition BBQ Teams including the Flamin’ Mongrels. Eighteen comps. Tens of thousands of kilometres travelled and tonnes of meat perfectly (and not so perfectly) smoked to please judges from all over Australia.  

2017 will be even bigger. With a least 25 events scheduled and more in talks with ABA right now, the competition circuit will be tough as undercooked beef shorties!

New teams are welcomed with open arms at every event and there is nothing like competition barbecue to really hone your skill on the pit.

If you want to keep an eye on what the top teams are doing, follow their antics, cooks, comps and maybe some secrets on Facebook and Instagram.

Finally a complete list of the teams to keep an eye out for in 2017!
