Charmate and the New Zealand Barbecue Alliance

The New Zealand low n slow community has taken off in recent years and we've been right behind it all the way. You'll see us at BBQ Competitions, supporting live masterclass events and sponsoring the New Zealand Barbecue Alliance.

The New Zealand BBQ Alliance is dedicated to the promotion and growth of barbecue in New Zealand. Aligning seamlessly with the Australian BBQ Alliance, they are the national body behind the sanctioning for all BBQ competitions in NZ, as well as the administrators of the hugely popular NZBA social media community which you can join to be a part of here: https://www.facebook.com/groups/nzbarbecue

Paddock to Plate

Hailing from the mighty Waikato, Mike and Jodi live in Waihi on a farm providing ethical and stress-free grain-fed meat. Mike's experience in the home kill trade and retail butchery led to his insight that the way you slaughter meat can lead to differences in taste.

On any given day, you'll find the pair out in the paddock, in the butchery or dropping off meat to numerous businesses around the Waikato. If you've tried their best-selling Kranksy's, you'll know why they are clocking up the miles delivering and selling their product across the region.
