Local butcher to show off his skills for a good cause
LOCAL mobile butcher Chris Hawke has been selected to compete in the 2018 BBQ Baleout in Sydney on November 3.
The event will be held at Entertainment Quarter in Moore Park, with one team from each state set to compete.
Twenty five percent of funds from tickets will go to Buy A Bale, which is helping support Australia’s rural communities and Aussie farmers, providing tangible resources to drought affected communities.
Mr Hawke will represent Victoria, alongside his team of five, and he looks forward to showcasing his skills on a big stage.
“It’s all about being clean and fast when getting the meat off the bone and I know I can do that well,” he said.
“We all have our individual skill set throughout the team and things that we’re better at.”
The Quality Cuts butcher said it’s great to be able to do the thing he loves and make money for farmers who are struggling.
Mr Hawke took to social media to create his business an Instagram page, where he posts regular about his achievements, and shortly after this he found out about the BBQ Baleout and was keen to get involved.
“I didn’t even know opportunities like this existed so I’m stoked to have found it,” he said.
Servicing Euroa and its surrounding areas, Mr Hawke will continue to hone down his skills in the coming weeks, with his team meeting up for training days as the competition nears.
Barbecue relies on good home grown produce and organisers said they want to celebrate this with an event to support our farmers and showcase the quality product they produce
Mr Hawke and his team will be judged on things like neatness and presentation of the meat, alongside portion control.
Donations can be made through Rural Aid, for those who want to help out.
