Having a BBQ at Home – Head to Hummerston’s

For those kicking back with a cold one, and Triple J’s Hottest 100 on the radio, you might well be thinking BBQ, or even more specifically, Sausage Sizzle. Did you know that it is UN-Australian not to have a sausage on Australia Day?!

Well the crazy gang at Hummerston’s Gourmet Meats have just the banger for Australia Day – it is their famous Lamb, Cheese & Vegemite snags, pictured below.
