Taking out the traditional barbecue category with his traditional barbecue sausage, he also won first place in the lamb category, continental category, gourmet/open class and the burger category.

The butcher also tied for second and third in the gourmet/open class category with his black angus beef with cheese, and pork and apple cider sausages, which were also 2014 regional winners.

The humble butcher said he was happy with the wins.

�We are really happy with these wins, it�s satisfying being rewarded for doing what you love and enjoy. We are really lucky to have the (Australian Meat Industry Council) who organise these events that help us strive to give only the best for our customers,� Mr Mammone said.

�Its been an enjoyable but hard two years for us establishing this business in what has been the hardest time for retail, but we are determined to continue servicing our customers and keeping the butchering industry alive. We are really lucky to have the support and loyalty of our customers.�

The competition is held annually.
