The BBQ – the movie

Latest News

Barbeques Galore is excited to announce our support and participation in the upcoming Australian movie, The BBQ.

Shane Jacobson (Oddball, Kenny, Charlie & Boots) and Magda Szubanski (Kath and Kim, Babe, Fast Forward) will lead an exciting cast of Australian and international actors in the movie, which commences principal photography in Australia on Feb 6, 2017.

Revolution Partners is thrilled to announce that Shane will play the role of Darren ‘Dazza’ Cook, a loveable suburban everyman with a long-established belief that his family is related to Captain James Cook. Dazza harbours a passion for barbequing, but when he accidentally gives his neighbours food poisoning at his popular regular Saturday BBQ, Dazza’s reputation and dignity are on the line. To make amends he seeks tutelage from the tyrannical Scottish chef known simply as The Butcher, who will be played by Magda. Together they enter an international barbecue competition, pitting Dazza’s homespun techniques against the world’s best BBQ chefs.

Barbeques Galore CEO, Luke Naish said, “We’re thrilled to support the production of an Australian movie with an outstanding cast. No summer is complete without the iconic barbeque, it’s what brings friends and families together and The BBQ celebrates that tradition.”

Joining Shane and Magda will be celebrity-chef and My Kitchen Rules star Manu Feildel; actor/compere/comedienne Julia Zemiro (Rockwiz); and the American actor Nicholas Hammond best known for his role as Friedrich von Trapp in the film The Sound of Music; with more feature cast to be announced soon.
