McNamara Park

The village of Broke, NSW will come alive with all things low and slow BBQ on the June long weekend. It will be the first year of the Smoke in Broke festival, and the line-up is shaping up to be one of the biggest country BBQ events of it’s kind.
McNamara Park will host approximately 30 BBQ teams competing for $10,000 worth of cash and prizes. Visitors are encouraged to come out and enjoy a weekend of fun, activities, food trucks, craft beer, boutique wine and more.
This event will be held over 2 days, entry is only $7 at the gate or $6.15 pre-purchased online from Eventbrite.  Entry is for the weekend and children 12 and under are free.
Saturday’s event schedule includes cooking demonstrations, activities for the kids, market stalls, music from local bands, and a lot of low and slow BBQ. The evening is set to finish with a classic rock/country concert set by Firepits for all to enjoy. The teams will begin preparing for competition and the sweet smell of BBQ will begin to turn in the air.
Sunday will be a day all about BBQ. Smoke in Broke will be one of the only BBQ competitions that allows spectators to taste the BBQ cooked by the teams. Official judging will be done by the ABA judges, but at the end of each meat turn in, the teams are encouraged to let the public taste their extra meat.  Visitors can purchase a tasting plate on the Sunday that gets them 2 sides and a vote for our people’s choice winner.  Tasting plate must be purchased to participate in team tastings.
This event is being coordinated by Smokin Hot ‘n Saucy and has the support of Singleton Shire Council and the Broke Wine Region.
