Grillstock London, in partnership with Waltham Forest Council, is set to be the biggest BBQ festival outside of the US, attracting thousands of meat and music lovers seeking some southern hospitality.
The US style ‘low and slow’ BBQ competition puts teams through their paces as they show off their culinary skills over the smoky coals and battle it out to be crowned King of the Grill. The competition allows festival goers the chance to interact with the teams, taste the food and experience their passion for authentic barbecue. Increasing the heat, legendary Dr BBQ (aka Ray Lampe) will oversee the judging.
Rockabilly, soul, hip-hop, blues, rock and country will be the soundtrack to the weekend, alongside the Weber BBQ Academy, Brooklyn Brewery’s imported craft beer & New York Dive Bar, bourbon dens and village of BBQ traders –That’s before you discover the huge Grillstock Smokehouse on site, serving up pit-smoked meaty treats and Grillstock’s very own Pale Ale, which was created especially for BBQ.
Grillstock also happens in Bristol and Manchester.
