UK Burger Battle Announces JudgeMEAT Day in Birmingham
“Battle of the Bacon Cheeseburger”
The Midlands premier food & entertainment event, UK Burger Battle is back in Birmingham on Sunday 25 October at Spotlight in Digbeth. The event, which sees 2 top burger teams competing for your votes, has pulled together a strong lineup and tickets are on sale now.
The concept is simple; 1 ticket, 2 burgers, your vote and a great party!
Here’s the promo video:
So who are the teams?
The Beefy Boys – Hereford
These 4 friends from Hereford were at our very first battle nearly a year ago where they won the Peoples Vote. They competed last year at the World Food Championships in Las Vegas, where they were voted 2nd best burger team in the WORLD! Since then, they’ve been trading like mad across the UK and have come back to UK Burger Battle a week before they head back to the USA to compete again. Their ethos is simple – to put out their take on a classic cheeseburger done extremely well – letting the beef do the talking. We are lucky to have them back!
The Beefy Boys present: The Chipotle Boy
Third of a Pound Dry Aged Hereford Beef Patty, Maple Cured Bacon, Homemade Chipotle Mayo, Swiss & American Cheese, Lettuce, Onion and Gherkins all served in a Semi-Brioche Bun.
What’s Your Beef – Manchester
Eddie, Neil and Paul hail from Manchester. Their mission is to produce the best tasting, juiciest and succulent burgers possible. They wont compromise on the quality of their handmade, freshly cooked burgers. They use Beef that is supplied by one of the best multi award winning butchers in the north-west using grass fed, ethically reared cattle raised locally. They’ve won great praise for their food from customers and have even got a special commendation from a 2 Michelin Star Chef at a recent event. Once again – no frills – letting the beef do the talking!
What’s Your Beef present: The Stateside Deluxe
Freshly Made Dry Aged Patty from locally sourced grass fed cattle, Dry Home Cured Streaky Bacon, Mature Cheddar, Fried Onions, Dutch pickles, Lettuce, Beef Tomato, Ketchup and Mustard all served in a lightly toasted Brioche Bun.
Sailor Jerry Bar
The emphasis is on the Peoples Vote but we also have a Judges vote. The judging panel is made up of:
David Colcombe – Chef Consultant
Ahmed Kage – Event Organiser and Food Consultant
Luke Beardsworth – Birmingham Mail Whats-On Reporter
Mary Griffin – Food Writer
Paul Fulford – Food Writer
Burger Eating Challenge
Leo Kattou (chef from Simpsons) holds the title for eating 6 burgers in 29 minutes; all other contenders since then have failed the challenge. At this battle, we welcome the first female contender Emma Dalton from Bromsgrove. She is a professional competitive eater who has been seen doing challenges on TV show This Morning and soon to be on Japanese TV. Will she be able to beat the time?
