This year’s AMIC QLD Sausage King and Best Butchers Burger Competitions will kick off at Carina Leagues Club, 1390 Creek Road, Carina at 9.00am on Sunday, 3rd May 2015. AMIC’s South Brisbane Independent Local Butchers (‘ILBs’) will present their best sausage and burger creations to a team of judges to inspect and taste to ultimately decide who makes the best sausages in the region.

Seven regions will compete in seven heats in AMIC’s annual contest which will be run from February through to July with the State Final to determine the finest Sausage and Burger makers in the State being held on Sunday, 16 August at the Food Pavilion, RNA Showgrounds, Bowen Hills.

Six categories of sausages will be up for judging; Traditional Australian Beef; Traditional Australian Pork; Poultry; Australian Lamb/Open Class; Continental and Gourmet/Open Class and an array of Burgers made from Beef and/or Pork, Lamb and Poultry. The experienced judges made up of consumers and trade experts will be scrutinizing the uncooked and cooked appearance of the sausages and burgers and taste testing them for their flavour and texture.

Each year brings new creative recipes from the masters who enter these esteemed events. Presentation and professionalism are always first rate from our ILB’s who seize this opportunity to publicise sausages and burgers as tasty and healthy main meals.

The state winners will then proceed to the National Sausage King Finals to be held in Brisbane on Saturday, 7 February 2016 where they will compete against other state winners for Australia’s ultimate title of Sausage King and Burger King.
