The Screen Guide

Darren 'Dazza'” Cook is the patriarch of a suburban Aussie family specialising in barbecuing, claiming that his ancestor was none other than the famed British explorer, Captain James Cook who introduced the “barbacoa” to Australia. Darren’s partner Diane secretly wishes he would pull back on their weekly Saturday BBQs in order to spend more quality time with the family. But one Saturday, Dazza accidentally gives his neighbours food poisoning and the local magistrate orders him to attend a food safety course with The Butcher, an infamously demanding Scot. Together they enter an international barbecue competition in order to reclaim Dazza’s reputation. But Dazza must battle egotistical French chef, Andre Monteblanc to win BBQ glory. The steaks don’t get much higher!
