Time Out says
A festival devoted entirely to meat, glorious meat
UPDATE 13/03/2020: Meatstock Melbourne has been postponed until August 15 and 16 following the federal government's current ban on events with more than 500 people. For more up-to-date information, check out Meatstock's Facebook page.
Are you sick of salad? Maybe you’d like to kill kale? Perhaps you hunger for something with a little more meat on its bones? Well, hunger no more! Meatstock returns to Melbourne on March 14 and 15 to satisfy your carnivorous cravings.
For 2020, Meatstock will be bringing three of the best barbecuers in the biz: Wayne Mueller of the world-famous Louie Mueller BBQ (who was named as the fourth most influential BBQ pitmaster/personality in America by Fox News), Ronnie Evans and Philip Moseley from Blue Oak BBQ.
This weekend of meat mania will also feature the Barbecue Wars, a battle with over 50 teams competing, as well as Butcher Wars, when 20 butchers going up against Melbourne’s best to see who can slice and dice the best piece of meat. The festival will also host Culley’s King of the Que – a competition in which contestants must use a traditional barbecue to cook various meaty delights to perfection. The winner will travel to Texas to represent Australia in the World Steak Championships.
There'll be plenty of meat to eat, and you can wash it all down with a cold beer. Entertainment will come by way of the many local bands playing the main stage, including Jebadiah, and you can enjoy one of the workshops or demonstrations being dished up across this two-day barbecue bonanza.
