The Flamin’ Mongrels are a very popular BBQ team competing on the Australasian BBQ Alliance (ABA) sanctioned competition circuit. We are based on the Gold Coast and currently consist of four regular team members.

Including BBQ Wars in Port Macquarie NSW, Burleigh BBQ, our local event on the esplanade at Miami QLD, Meatstock in Sydney and Melbourne VIC, BBQ Roadshow in Brisbane, Manning Valley in NSW, Bangalow BBQ and Bluegrass Festival NSW, Brahman Battle in Rockhampton QLD and Bundaberg BBQ Wars just to name a few!

In 2015, two of our team members were invited to compete on the national TV show Aussie BBQ Heroes. During this epic competition, Adrian and Brett ran the team colours and picked up a win in the Aussie Sausage competition and then followed it up with a tied win in the Chicken category. They only just missed out on spot in the grand final after a cracker ‘Californian Fish Taco’ was fiercely defended by one judge.
Our episodes are still running on catch up TV
With our past TV performances, and our extravagant BBQ pit setups, we are quite often called upon for event media coverage as well.
