'The BBQ Brothers' The Boys From Good Game will be in the kitchen!
The Beer Bangers and Bands event on Saturday 16th April at the Public Hall in Budleigh, brings you great music, locally produced drinks and for the ‘BBQ Brothers’ from Good Game in the kitchen, it's all about the bangers!
Proceeds from the event will go toward the funding needed to host the next Budleigh Food and Drink Festival in 2017 and ‘keeping it local’ was the key ingredient for the festival organisers when looking for someone to provide food for the event. Good Game, based in Topsham, have been making sausages and cured meats for a number of years and are true artisans, using very traditional styles to produce their award winning sausages. Owners Steve Williams and Pete say “A quality sausage needs to have a high meat content but does benefit from containing a small amount of oats to keep the fat in as it cooks.” Steve and Pete are really pleased to be supporting the Beer Bangers and Bands event and will be cooking up a selection of sausages to buy from the kitchen during the evening. “We make tasty cooking sausages from game and exciting pork sausage like Chorizo, Black Pudding and Spicy Italian and we are in discussions about making a banger especially for the event!”.
Good Game supports local producers. They have their own pigs at Powderham and also buy from friends who have native breed pigs locally. Their game is either shot by themselves or by local Devon folk they know. They buy sundries and kit from MK in Devon who are a local family business and where possible get spices from one of the Devon producers or a small specialist importer who has direct contact with growers and can ensure quality levels.
It's this buy local ethos that makes them such a good choice for the Budleigh Food and Drink Festival fundraiser.
Good Game have recently opened a BBQ restaurant The Pig and Pallet in Topsham where all of it’s fine produce are available to eat on site or even to take away and cook at home… If you want to know what you are eating, and you should, Good Game is the choice!
