RRR Melbourne BBQ Day 2009
Ceres Environmental Park
With all the hype over MasterChef this year and even best selling literary works being set in the world of the backyard BBQs, it's good to know some things never change. Walking into the car park at CERES I managed to hear Eat It just starting and smell the BBQ and knew it would be another good year.
Landline is on at the same time so I don't usually get the chance to listen to Eat It so it was good to hear the BBQ recommendations and see them in action on the grill up front.
I did get to meet Digger from Dirty Deeds before the show and it was good to see them again after last year. There were lots of good questions from the audience in particular for the Bird Man Sean Dooley who was a guest on the panel.
Having had a greatest hits show of sorts last year, this year JVG's show had all new songs with tested performers and a few new guest stars.
I thought this year's BBQ Day was great and it seemed like lots more people came this time, some more of my friends also came, which was great and I am looking forward to next year.

In what was a new event after BBQ Day this year, Dan Warner and the Melbourne BBQ Orchestra had a special gig at the Lomond afterwards in the style of an extended Warner Corner segment where Ian Bland would hold up a word and the band would have to come up with a song to play on that theme.
Luckily I had arrived straight after BBQ day finished down the road so I was able to get a seat, lots of people turned up and had a great time.
I enjoyed not having to rush off straight after the outside broadcast finished and hopefully it happens again next year.
