After a two-year pause, The Guinness Great Grill Out is returning to Singapore next month for two days of barbecue by top restaurants, an exclusive dinner, eating competition, and more.
Taking place at Gillman Barracks on 5 and 6 November, aspiring pitmasters can also learn grilling techniques from renowned chefs, and purchase equipment for their next cookout.
For this year, the outdoor festival will highlight a variety of flame-cooked dishes by local barbecue joints, smokehouses, and grill experts. Highlights include Meatsmith’s famed cheeseburger, roast pork bagel sandwich from Two Men Bagel House, and smoked meats by Red Eye Smokehouse.
For the brave, the Spicy Sausage Challenge tests their mettle over six levels that grows increasingly hotter. The winner will be crowned The Chilli King of The Guinness Great Grill Out.
At the Chef’s Table, Butcher Boy chef-owner, Andrew Walsh and Guinness Beer & Food Ambassador, Ian Colgan will team up to cook a five-course dinner with Irish and Asian influences, including Irish oysters with Thai green chilli sauce, and laksa dumplings. These dishes will be paired with rare Guinness brews like the Guinness Open Gate Brewery Bubble Tea Inspired Stout.
Learn grilling tips from the experts at the masterclasses. The workshops will be hosted by chefs including Dave Pynt of Burnt Ends and Meatsmith, as well as Artichoke chef-owner and Masterchef Singapore judge Bjorn Chen. They will be sharing their techniques for dishes like roast chicken and Beef & Guinness Pie.
Supplement your new skills with items from the Marketplace, which will sell grilling essentials from barbecue shop Fyregrill, locally-made cutting boards from home furnishing brand Arthur Zaaro, and more.
