RRR Melbourne BBQ Day 2006

Ceres Environmental Park
Sunday, 3rd December, 2006
with special guests Ian Bland, Gary Adams, Melbourne BBQ Orchestra: Big Kev, Dan, Ed Bates, Dan Warner, Marcel Borrack, Sarah Carroll, Fred Negro, Wagons, Tides of Welcome Community Choir, Barb Waters, Wes & Horse, Suzannah Espie, Dr Pump, Merri Creek Primary School dancers

I have tried to provide a commentary for the past in previous years, but this year I'll just list what you missed by not turning up on the day:

  • spoken word BBQ piece by Ian Bland
  • Poetry by Gary Adams
  • BBQ Instrumental
  • Travelling Wheelbarrows: Handle meat with care
  • Dan Warner: Got to get a sausage to you
  • Dan Warner, Marcel Borrack & Sarah Carroll: Buns with meat
  • Fred Negro: Waitin' for the lamb
  • Wagons: Hip-hop BBQ (fry up some MOFO onions!)
  • Tides of Welcome Community Choir: Tenderise
  • Close the snag shop down
  • Barbie Waters: I'll be at your barbie tonight
  • It ain't meat
  • It's all over BBQ
  • Wes & Horse: Lazy Sunday BBQ
  • Suzannah Espie: Union BBQ
  • Rock & Roll Coleslaw
  • Pumpy: Fridge, Cookin' the Rump & Chop Griller

Having attended the last five RRR Melbourne BBQ Days and photographed the last three, I can definitely say that this was the best yet and was well worth the trouble of marking on the calendar at least a year in advance as I did last year. (Next year's RRR Melbourne BBQ Day is on 2nd December 2007, put it in your calendar now even before birthdays or anniversaries.)

This year I also found out the cafe sells raspberry vodka & lemonade so I will make better use of it if I go there in the future. I need to take an esky full of icy poles if it is a stinker also and an ice-pack for my eyes the next day after being out in the sun all day.
