This year the Bundaberg BBQ Battle will feature a special event for children, the Hitz 939 Kids Que Nation Bundaberg competition.

If you have a budding BBQ legend aged between 4-15 years old, who can cook a rib fillet steak (supplied) to perfection and whack something delicious in a bun, then email kidsqnationbundy@gmail.com for an entry form.

Entries at $40 close on 24 April.

KidsQue Nation was established in 2015, dedicated to the development of young people through competition grilling.

Bundy Broadcasters are sponsoring the Bundaberg BBQ Battle and will broadcast live from Burnett Heads on Saturday, 1 May.
