Which snags sizzle?
COMPETITION was sizzling at the North Coast Sausage King competition in Coffs Harbour yesterday.
Judges Phil Doyle, Simon Reid and Jim Down poked, prodded, sniffed and munched their way through 50 different entries from butchers throughout the North Coast in an attempt to find the coast's best snags.
The three sensitive new age guys tasted sausages from butcheries stretching from the Tweed to Taree.
The quality of the sausages and the eagerness of butchers to be involved were the standout features of the North Coast section of the statewide competition, said Australian Meat Industry Council member services officer Jacqueline Baptista. Ms Baptista travelled to Coffs Harbour for the competition, which is sponsored by the AMIC.
"There were 50 entries in the two divisions," Ms Baptista said.
"The regional competitions are always better than the city ones and this was especially true yesterday in the Australian, pork and gourmet sections."
"There were a couple of dozen entries in the gourmet section."
A list of prizewinners wil be in The Coffs Coast Advocate tomorrow.
