They say that BBQ is from the south and you can’t get much more south than Australia. In 1988 Aussom Aussie came to the U.S. to compete in national and international Rib contests. Their mission is to prove that Australian styled BBQ is as good, if not better than, the traditional BBQ we are all love. They are known for their traditional Australian BBQ sauce made with an Australian fruit, a long time tradition in the family.

Now with over 350 awards for Best BBQ in Australia, the US and Canada, they are looking forward to bringing that unique taste of the “down under” to Maine!
