Its time to tantlise the taste buds....

In a county that produces the best meat in the world BBQ is one of the tastiest ways to cook it. With the UK’s changeable weather us Brits are showing how the weather cant stop the best cooks and BBQ is becoming more popular every year.

Meet a selection of the best BBQ teams from across the UK who will be in the Quarry Park competing for the title of Shropshire’s best BBQ. With some joints taking over 24 hours to reach perfection you’ll be able to meet the teams, chat through what makes their BBQ the best and then on Sunday you might even get to try it after the judges have done their judging.

The BBQ stage will bring together some of the best BBQ chefs  to share tips on how to get the best from your food and your BBQ whatever the weather throws our way. We have some AWESOME demonstrators and experts featured so head towards the bandstand to catchup them in action!
