Meat lovers are in for a treat at the Dunsborough Tavern on Easter Sunday when the beer garden will be turned into a carnivore’s retreat.

Head chef Tim Baarspul will host the Battle of the Barbecues with three chefs firing up three different barbecues using three different methods of cookery.

Chef Baarspul said that one barbecue would be a char grill, the second a ceramic acorn and the third would be a Patagonian cross which is an Argentinian style of barbecue.

He said on the grills would be a suckling pig, Szechuan chicken using chicken Marylands, lamb shoulders and a Mexican styled corn dish for vegetarians.

“We have brewed a beer up at Eagle Bay called the Easter Bunny,” he said.

“Myself, Simon and one of the other managers went up there and brewed the beer specifically for the event and will have a tap takeover with six taps in the beer garden with Eagle Bay beers.”

Chef Baarspul said the beer garden would be transformed with a long table, live music and face painting for the children.

“It will just be a big family meat fest,” he said.

“It should be a good fun event.”

The feast will start at 12pm on Sunday bookings are not required.
