The Beefy Boys

FIRE KITCHEN STAGE - with DJ BBQ as compere

The Beefy Boys from Hereford - back in 2011 they were just four backyard amateur cooks sharing a passion for local produce and dirty American-style burgers and BBQ. After a hefty amount of online research and guinea pigging on friends and family The Beefy Boys entered the UK’s biggest BBQ competition Grillstock winning the coveted title of Best Burger in 2014.

After winning at Grillstock The Beefy Boys got to represent the UK at The World Food Championships in Las Vegas, where they competed against 50 of the best Burger chefs in the world for the title of World’s Best Burger! The four lads from Hereford defied all the odds and managed to come 2nd overall with their Butty Bach Burger winning the final.

The Beefy Boys used their winnings in Vegas to turn The Beefy Boys into a regular street food pop up culminating in the launch of their first restaurant The Beefy Boys Meat Boutique in The Old Market Hereford.

Murf from The Beefy Boys will be bringing his passion for outdoor cooking along to Ludlow and we're looking forward to welcoming him to the Fire Kitchen Stage, sponsored by Kadai Firebowls.
