Best prize for wurst sausage

Central and North Burnett Times - - LOCAL NEWS - ❏ Sue Har­ris

MUN­DUB­BERA Butcher­ing Com­pany took home the wurst crown again, af­ter be­ing named Grand Cham­pion at the scond an­nual Wide Bay Wurst Off, held at Wondai re­cently.

As well as the top tro­phy, owner Tim Duggan was pre­sented with tro­phies for best pep­per and best gar­lic wurst. Mr Duggan at­trib­uted the win to his wurst maker Ray Sorensen, who came up with the win­ning com­bi­na­tion once again.

Butch­ers at Mur­gon, Kin­garoy and Wooroolin also went home with prizes.

The Wurst Off, which is a fundraiser for the Karate Union of Aus­tralia, was judged by Ja­son Ford from the South­ern Queens­land In­sti­tute of TAFE, Chan­tal Harth from ra­dio sta­tion Crow-FM and An­drew Zerner from KUA.

They were each pre­sented with plates of wurst in a ‘blind’ taste test.

“The qual­ity was A-grade,” Mr Ford said.

“The judges en­joyed the night im­mensely but choos­ing the Grand Cham­pion was very chal­leng­ing be­cause we didn’t agree at first.

“But af­ter tasting the top three scor­ing wursts sev­eral more times, we came to a con­sen­sus.”
