Mundubbera butcher snags more awards
MUNDUBBERA Butchering Company snagged two awards at last Sunday's Wide Bay-Burnett Sausage King Competition.
The company has won a national Sausage King contest in the past, as well as four state wins and several regional wins.
Mundubbera Butchering Company owner Tim Duggan said he was proud of his entire team for its win in the traditional beef sausage category and the lamb category.
"I think it's great," Mr Duggan said.
"The category every butcher wants to win is the beef sausage category.
"We're lucky to win that one."
The store qualified for the State Championships, to be held in Brisbane in August.
If the store wins in either category at the state level, it will go on to the national Sausage King competition in February.
Mr Duggan said he had noticed people were coming into the store and looking for different flavoured sausages.
"We are doing something right; people are actually coming here looking for our product," he said.
Mr Duggan said this was the first year since the competition had expanded to 10 regions.
"It's a smaller region, but it seemed more butchers entered," he said.
"I heard judges say with the high number of entries the quality was also very high."
Mr Duggan runs the business with his wife Robyn, who combines flavours to create sausages like the award-winning lamb with pumpkin, feta and shallot.
