Prepare to drool all over yourself Homer Simpson-style, because the Yaks Ale Barbecue Festival is coming to New South Wales for the first time. This weekend-long celebration of all things smoked and slow-cooked will bring together some of the biggest names in Aussie barbecue, along with celebrity pitmasters from Memphis to LA.
Held on February 10 and 11 at Central Coast Stadium, the festival will feature live music acts, culinary demos, a cook-off and a butcher battle. But let's not beat around the bush here: you want to know about the food. Chances are, you won't be disappointed. Bluebonnet, Burn City Smokers, Hard Style Kitchen Southside Smokers and Sugarfire Smoke House from the US are but a few of the meat maestros who'll be in attendance.
Our advice? Start fasting now.
