Darren “Dazza” Cook (Jacobson) holds the weekly barbeque inviting all of his friends and neighbours. His family is growing bored with his obsession and eating leftover meat for the rest of the week.
Dazza claims his history goes back to explorer Captain James Cook until his 12-year-old son receives detention and has to research this ancestral link.
Dazza’s boss enters him into the barbeque championship cookoff, on the promise of receiving training from the infamous local Scottish butcher-slash-chef (Magda Szubanski). They have to compete against the underhanded and ruthless ex-co-chef (Manu Fiedel).
The BBQ provides lots of light-hearted moments and laughs. It is cheesy at times, so it probably suits a younger audience.
The BBQ opens nationally in Australia on wide release Thursday 22 February 2018.
There is a companion BBQ cookbook also released.
Grill it and they will come.
