Whipped up some bacon sausage and eggs for breakfast today and opted for Homegrown instead of salt and pepper! So glad I did!!

Its been a whole week since we loaded up the family and the trailer and headed up to Smoke on the Coast at the beautiful Whangateau Holiday Park

I do apologise for the delay in this post, firstly I was lost for words and secondly I have been away for work with minimal cell signal!

As you all know, steak has been my passion ever since miles’ first day out of hospital after being born where I took 2nd place in my first ever solo SCA. A special mention to Derrick Paull, he has been there for me since that day, and has believed in me and pushed me to keep going ever since. Mate to earn 1st place at your competition, where we started as Ques and Clues 5 years ago was an epic achievement and one ill cherish forever, and I think the hug said it all! Ill never forget our little midnight steak cook on the Saturday night, what a perfect way to thank you for everything that you have done and founding Smoke On The Coast! You leave it in safe hands, and we will be there to help continue the legacy for you!

Right-o! Saturday results!

Huge thanks to Ribs NZ, and Waitoa free range chicken for the premium supplied products.

Overall, 5th out of 36 teams! ☺️

Chicken, finally making noise in the top spots, tied 3 ways for 11th (290/300)

Ribs, ran the exact same profile as the day before and got 2nd (297/300) πŸ₯ˆ

Pork, every day working on this one! 3-way dead tie for 4th (298/300)

Brisket, ok this gutted me, and I’m still kicking myself, oh how much different things could have been! I burnt it, I’ll be honest. 22nd (277/300) 🀦

All and all we are super proud of our achievements over the weekend. It was a mammoth task, but we did it! See you at the next one! Roll on Jack N Smoke

Massive thankyou to our sponsors, without you guys we couldn't do what we do!

And this my friends is fomo all summed up! Steak eggs and chips..

Firstly, congratulations to everyone that cooked their hearts out today over in Fort Worth, Texas for the SCA World championship. You have done us all proud! Good luck to those who made their way into the finals tomorrow!

We Popped onto Mapari Meats yesterday and walked out with this STUNNING scotch fillet and decided It needed the full treatment!

Ran my award winning process on the Weber G.A including being rubbed down with Rum and Que intensify, bulldust and finished with garlic butter

The best damn steak I've eaten in some time! So damn tender and perfectly cooked. Honestly the quality of meat rolling out the doors at Mapari is next level! Get in there and find out what it's all about!

Of course the perfect steak could not be achieved without the help from the Team Bbqwar steak weight and riser, FireBoard NZ keeping a close eye on temps making sure it comes off at the exact right temperature and of course Cutty Sharp Knife Services making sure the trimming is carried out with razor sharp knives, sharpened the right way, old-school with stones and a careful hand.

Served up with some southern style coleslaw, garlic bread and a brisket, jalapeΓ±o and cheese kransky.


Good luck to all our kiwi brothers and sisters of the grill competing at the Steak Cookoff Association World championship in texas today!

We are all behind you back home, go well!


I'm not here to put socks on centipedes!!

Happy 40th wedding anniversary mum and dad!


Good luck and God speed to everyone competing over the weekend in nz and america!

Gutted to be missing Brewtown Barbecue Competition this year!

Fomo is at a mouth frothing level and we will experience the weekend through all of your posts!

Do us all proud


On a day like this, nothing beats coming home and cooking up a perfectly tender, perfectly Medium Juicy Scotch fillet steak from Mapari Meats sprinkled with Rum and Que intensify and given the rough comp treatment!

I may have got saturated cooking it bit it was so worth it!

Smashed potatoes, mix veg and pork sausages on the side

I'm off for seconds ;)

Meatstock Hamilton WOW!

This was simply the biggest moment in our BBQ Journey.

We had an amazing weekend competing alongside over 50 of the best Pitmasters Australia and New Zealand have on offer. we fought, we battled, we celebrated and in our eyes we won!

We had two goals for the weekend and to be able to tick those both off was epic! Hand in every protein to our best standards, and come home with a trophy! not only did Scott get a THIRD in steak on Saturday we heard our names called allot over the two days we were competing. we are stoked!

Day 1 SCA we entered in Steak, Burgers and Anything with Flying Goose AUS & NZ sauces.

Steak, Third place!! Another trophy for my favorite thing to cook! πŸ₯‰
Burgers - 13th πŸ”
Chefs choice - 8th πŸŽ‚

Day 2 - NZBA, chicken, ribs, pork, lamb and brisket

Chicken - 27th, Hang in there chook your time is coming ;)
Pork ribs - 21st
Pork - 7th with a perfect taste score (first time we have managed this!)
Lamb - 32nd
Brisket - 15th
Overall 17th out of 51

Not our best results but definitely our biggest achievement!

MASSIVE congratulations to Matt and Tracey from Rum and Que on winning probably the biggest competition in the southern hemisphere this year! that moment was priceless

Will try and share a link to prize giving if you cant find it, but don't hold me to it...


The butterflies are real, here we are. Awaiting prize giving at Meatstock Hamilton!


Let me paint a picture for you, in 2016 we fell in love with the art of real barbeque.

We were drawn in, we met some amazing people and forged life long freindships.

Times have been hard.

Moments have turned into memories.

Hardship has turned to success.

Over the last 4 years competing we have been working towards being good enough for this event.

We have poured blood, tears sweat and our souls into our passion and love for barbecue.

The times come to test our selves to our limits and push through to be the best we can be!

This weekend we are throwing it ALL out on the table. At the biggest event we have ever been part of, where the passion began for us Meatstock Hamilton baby!!

Lets fu***ng go!

Stepped outside my comfort zone today and pampered mum for her birthday

After a quick stop to Mapari Meats this morning for a couple of beautiful scotch fillets and a pork belly fit for the God's I headed home to start on lunch.

Lunch was :
Salt and Pepper Scotch fillet with chimmichuri, recipe courtesy of Black Dog BBQ.
Creamy prawns.
Cheezy wine and garlic sauce Smoked crayfish tail with apple wood from Urban Lumberjack.
Rum and Que Garlic butter crayfish tail.
All served on toasted Italian bread.

Then the main course for dinner pork belly with szechuan inspired beans, brocolli salad, and buttered lemon carots for dinner, sadly no photos as family took priority over the camera but it was out of this world good.

Bellies are happy and hearts are full β™₯️

All cooked on the Oklahoma Joe's Smokers NZ Bronco with Heat Beads BBQ Lump charcoal and the trusty Weber Grills go anywhere with the Team Bbqwar riser and GrillGrate
