Butcher snagging more wins at comp
MUNDUBBERA Butchering Company has snagged a win in three categories at the Wide Bay-Burnett Relish Food and Wine Festival in Maryborough.
The team won the Sausage King titles in 2007 and placed highly in many other categories in the past.
They hope to continue their fine form, and may be on the way to winning more awards at the Royal Ekka Show in September.
Mundubbera Butchering Company owner Tim Duggan said he was impressed with the team.
“The whole team did very well,” Mr Duggan said.
“We won the beef, lamb and continental categories in Maryborough.
“It was the first time we’ve ever won the continental category and we are very pleased with how it went.”
He said his team went to great lengths to produce the best quality meat for its customers.
“It’s the exact same beef sausages we sell to our customers, the lamb is cracked pepper and Worcestershire and the continental is a cheesy bratwurst,” Mr Duggan said.
“This cheesy bratwurst, we haven’t been making it for very long, but we’re very happy with how it’s turned out, so we had some success with that.”
Mr Duggan said a good sausage came from quality ingredients.
“You don’t pick up the trims off the floor or put rubbish into a sausage to get rid of it. If you want to sell a good sausage you’ve got to put quality products and quality ingredients into it,” he said.
Around 11 butchers entered the beef sausage competition at the weekend.
“I imagine any butcher that would enter, would enter their beef sausage as that’s the one you want to win,” Mr Duggan said.
“The beef is like the 100 metres in the athletics or the 100 metre freestyle in swimming, that’s the premium.”
