Media Release – 26 July 2023 – Sharing the love of barbecue at Hilltops Winter Glow

Jul 26, 2023

One of the leading figures in the Australian and New Zealand barbecue scene will create amazing flame cooked food, at the Hilltops Winter Glow Festival at Young Showground on Saturday 12 August 2023.

The Hilltops Winter Glow Festival is a community celebration of Winter that will feature hearty seasonal foods, rousing live music, activities for children, roving LED light performers and fireworks.

BBQ Grand Champion Pitmaster Adam Roberts is a star attraction of the event, and he comes with amazing knowledge and experience cooking over woodfire using smokers, grills, and barbecues.  

In July this year Adam managed the Vivid Fire Kitchen in Barangaroo, Sydney, being the resident Pitmaster supporting some of the world’s best Pitmasters and Chef’s over the full 23 days of the Sydney Vivid Festival 2023. The same month he organised and participated in a competition with the best barbecue teams in Australia at a Top 30 Invitational Contest in Port Macquarie.  

At the Hilltops Winter Glow Festival Adam will create mouth-watering food, provide regular cooking demonstrations and during his regular presentations will offer barbeque and outdoor cookery fans invaluable tips and tricks of the trade to take home and utilize.

Adam says he is really looking forward to his visit to the Hilltops and estimates that he has visited hundreds of small towns in Australia and New Zealand.

“I love getting out there and connecting with people and sharing the love of barbecue,” he said.

Adam had a longstanding love of cooking when he was inspired to set up his own food truck after a visit to New York in 2012 and he and a friend began introducing people back home to the American style of barbecue and his involvement in the industry and phenomenal success flourished to this day.

The Hilltops Winter Glow Festival will be held from 4pm to 9pm at Young Showground on Saturday 12 August 2023. Entry is free.
