Restaurants and Restaurateurs with the likes of Matthew Mattheson (Canada, Dead Set on Life), Fancy Hanks (Melbourne), Duncan Welgemoed, Low and Slow, Chris Jarmer, and JK BBQ’s & Smoke.


Imagine live Music and DJ’s with a chunk of gratifying meat from this butcher Gods flamed to perfection. What more can you ask for?
