The biggest BBQ & Music Festival in the UK, Grillstock is a truly international event, with 24 teams from across the globe competing to be crowned ‘King of the Grill’ Grand Champion. Everyone from top chefs to backyard grillers fight it out over the smouldering coals. The expert panel under the watchful eye of US celebrity BBQ pitmaster, Ray ‘Dr.BBQ’ Lampe, judges every dish.
And as an extra treat for BBQ fans, Bad Byron Chism returns to Grillstock from the US following his victory in 2011 to defend his title. Yeehah!
“Grillstock is among the best BBQ events anywhere! It’s a fun day of great food and great music, with a Big Time Barbecue Cook-off right smack in the middle of it all. When the smoke rises in Bristol I will always be there!” … Ray ‘Dr.BBQ’ Lampe, US BBQ Pitmaster, Cookbook Author and TV Celebrity.
But it’s not just all about the BBQ. Grillstock has a musical flavour too, with headliners including the US Soul Sensation, Charles Bradley & The Extraordinaires and the incredible Alabama 3, famous for their soundtrack for the hit TV show ‘The Sopranos’.
It’s this fusion of BBQs and bands that creates a unique festival experience, right in the heart of Bristol.
