From Morning Report, 8:56 am on 16 November 2023

Brisket, bone-in, chuck, prime, sirloin and short rib - just about any other cut you can imagine - is being cooked up at this year's Canterbury A&P Show.

It's part of the annual Let There Be Meat BBQ Competition, where 40 of the best barbequers from Aotearoa and abroad will compete to see who's the best.

To kick of the competition, a 300 kilogram cow carcass was put onto a custom built rotisserie, which took about 4 months to build.

Competition runner Glenn Manning says in total, there's about 3000 kilograms of meat set for the grill over the next two days.

Manning spoke to Corin Dann.
