Lo­cal butch­ers snag string of top awards

Central and North Burnett Times - - LOCAL NEWS -

MUN­DUB­BERA is butcher­ing the com­pe­ti­tion with its fa­mous sausages.

The guys from Mun­dub­bera Butcher­ing Co. picked up a first, a sec­ond and a third prize in round one of the National Sausage King Com­pe­ti­tion.

The de­li­cious cre­ation of Moroc­can lamb with raisins and al­monds won the lamb cat­e­gory in Yep­poon last Sun­day.

Butcher Tim Dug­gan said they placed third in the same cat­e­gory, with a honey mus­tard lamb sausage.

“And we got sec­ond out of 58 in the gourmet sausages,” Mr Dug­gan said.

“Imag­ine hav­ing to judge 58 sausages – I wouldn’t want that job!”

The sec­ond place sausage was beef with caramelised onion and moz­zarella cheese.

Mun­dub­bera Butcher­ing Co. is no stranger to suc­cess in the com­pe­ti­tion.

In 2007, it was crowned National Sausage King for its pork snags.

The butch­ers will head to the Queens­land state fi­nals later in the year.

The first round of com­pe­ti­tion will see Queens­land di­vided into six re­gions. Mun­dub­bera Butcher­ing Co. will be part of Capri­corn, which takes in Bund­aberg and Mackay.
