Dipper's BBQers For Series 3 2021

Everbody meet Matt, Matt is one of Australia's most renowned bush cooking experts and I wanted this series to be like no other, so I've tweeked the format and cooking to appeal to every BBQer Australia wide. Matt's campfire and BBQ cooking skills are unique and he has promised me that he will share his outback BBQing knowledge in series 3 to my audience. So Matt welcome to Dipper's Backyard BBQ Wars.
Meet Ado, Ado tells me that around 7 years ago a mate of his introduced him to charcoal cooking and his life changed forever. He started entering competitions and became a true student of the genre. His passion for the "fusion" side of BBQing and pushing the boundaries of traditional cooking has landed him with me and 6 other competitors all vying to be crowned Australia's best BBQer 2021.

Graham comes to series 3 as the "quiet type". He began his love affair with all things Australian BBQ back in Adelaide when he worked alongside his father as a butcher. He learnt the subtleties of meat preparation which quickly led to the art of smoking meats and doing charcuterie. His BBQ journey took off after meeting Pete, Evan and Shaun and the trio formed the well respected BBQ team The Brisket Boys. You can find Graham and the guys most weekends competing regularly on the BBQ competition circuit with great success. The "quiet one" is my "smokey" for the competition and I believe he will be in the hunt when the dust clears. Welcome Graham and best of luck.

Desi & Irene
Joining me for series 3 are Melbourne sisters Desi (Healthy Cook 4 Champions) and Irene (Come Grill With Me) . They're both content creators on social media, inspiring foodies all around the world. These sisters are self taught and learnt how to cook from a very young age. Both girls will be teaming up in a first for the series and will turn the BBQ world upside down with some of the best dishes I've ever tasted from a BBQ. For this very reason I wanted them to share their skill and talent with Australia and join me with some of Australia's BBQers in series 3 and showcase their love for all things BBQing. It's a true pleasure to welcome them both to Dipper's Backyard BBQ Wars.

Meet my newest competitor Adrian. Adrian's BBQ journey began when his amazing wife sent him to a BBQ Master Class with Bob Hart, from there his passion for all things BBQ became an obsession. From Melbourne to Texas, Adrian has travelled far and wide to master his craft and to scratch his BBQ itch of wanting to taste and learn from the world's best BBQers. He is now a regular on the ABA and SCA competition circuits competing at every opportunity possible. He recently won first place with a pork rib dish second to none and with so gave him the much sought after "golden ticket" to compete in the world championships in Texas next year. I personally can't wait to try these world famous ribs, it's a pleasure to welcome Adrian to series 3.
It's with great happiness that one of Australia's best BBQERS Dan Verbi will be joining us again for Series 3. I know I can't have favourites however last year's competitors were brilliant with Dan and his food being outstanding to say the least. It's with open arms we welcome him back and a warning to all other competitors DAN the MAN IS BACK.
Daniel Verbi is the creative force behind 'Danny Balboa's Sauce Co' a Melbourne based company that produces small batch hot sauces and spice rubs. After years working in the BBQ industry (both in restaurants and the competition circuit) he took the knowledge gained and combined with his natural wizardry in the kitchen, he set out to produce something with a real depth of flavour, not just heat. Food is the central focus of Dan's life, it's all about family and bringing people together, it's about lighting a fire and smashing beers with mates. His belief is that you should start with the best quality ingredients you can and don't mess with them too much. You don't need to complicate things to make great food.
