Head to Meatstock for your smoky fill of bands and barbecues, beards and barbers, butchers, bourbon and plenty of beer.
The flaming hot two-day line-up includes competitions such as the Barbecue, Butcher and Barber Wars, as well as demonstrations and workshops. The event is garnished with a backdrop of live bands, BBQ-inspired food trucks and craft beer.
Over 55 teams from across Australia will compete for a cash prize at the first ever Meatstock Melbourne Barbecue Wars, and the crown of Best Barbecuers in Victoria. There's also a new competition - King of the Grill - where barbecue fanatics can compete for the title of best Steak, Burger and Wings, sanctioned by America's Steak Cook Off Association.
