FORGET the Bunnings sausage sizzle.

When it comes to the perfect snag, Geenwood and Morley have the best in the country.

Having already proved to be number one in WA, Greenwood’s Barbaro Butchers has now been crowned an overall winner at the Australian Meat Industry Council’s National Sausage King competition.

The family-run business took out two awards: for best traditional Australian beef sausage and best chicken sausage.

Proving the best is found in the west, WA won four of the six categories with Crimea Quality Meats in Morley awarded the best traditional Australian pork sausage and best Australian lamb sausage for its feta and chives recipe.

After winning the state round, Stefan Barbaro said the secret to winning the beef and chicken categories was to “stick to the basics”.

“We are lucky enough to have our own farm, which we raise our own cattle and sheep on and believe the quality of our beef certainly helps,” he said.

“We also used local free-range chicken and didn’t add many ingredients so you taste the full flavour of the chicken.”
