Here at Gin & Griddle we are big fans of BBQ… and there’s an exciting event coming up next month. Neon & Bodytonic are bringing us Ireland’s first ever international BBQ festival & competition.
Taking place in Herbert Park in Ballsbridge, Dublin 4, The Big Grill Festival will be crammed full of all things BBQ, grilling, smoking, meat, and of course accompanied by the best of craft beers and cider.
The restaurant line-up is impressive – Asador and Kinara Kitchen are definite standouts for me. The finest meats cooked using live fire and smoke by top chefs & eateries – yes please!
A handpicked selection of some of Ireland’s best Craft Beers & Ciders will compliment the food, from Tom Creans, Rascals, Trouble Brewing & Eight Degrees. However is beer is not your thing, there will also be wines and soft drinks available.
If you want to perfect your BBQ techniques… to cook the most perfect of steaks, or delicious ribs, or delectable pulled pork…. join the ‘Grillster Academy’ and learn about; BBQ, grilling, smoking, meat selection & preparation, rubs, sauces, sides, beer brewing…
Once you’re BBQ’d out and topped up with craft beer and drinks, there’s the music – a soundtrack of funk, soul, blues, brass, hip-hop & disco by top DJs programmed by Discotekken throughout the weekend.
I am so looking forward to this Festival – Lets hope for some sunshine to make it even better…See you all in Herbert Park in August!
