Are you ready to test yourself?

And speaking of the 6 challenges……one of the more interesting ones is Adrian Zocaro’s  (Firing Line Gourmet Chilli) new “Candy from Hell” Challenge which kicks off at 6.15pm, bumping the Flaming Wings Challenge.   Find out more at the dedicated Facebook event page here.

Adrian has lovingly created a colourful collection of diabolical little gummy drops, in all colours, sneakily belying their heat level, leaving the challengers to find this out as they chew their way to the victory line.

The event will be MC’d by Phil North of Burning Bites Down Under so it’s sure to be a fun segment.

Adrian is better known for his amazing, low, slow-cooked meats (and vegetables) and is a very popular destination for meat-lovers at any festival which features his beloved cooker.  Chillogan 2019 will be no exception and Adrian has prepared some great surprises for his regular customers and will be ready to wow his new customers with his melt-in-the-mouth offerings.

Hellfire Alley will feature some of Australia’s finest artisan chilli product makers ready to test your mettle with their wares.

The Afterburn Bar will cool your tongue with some great beverages, including chilli beer and chilli cocktails and mocktails.

The kids can amuse themselves with two jumping castles, pony rides and an animal nursery.

And for those who like to learn new things, pop along to Adrian Zocaro’s workshop on smoked meats (brought to you by Firing Line Gourmet Chilli). Then learn about bees, honey and all things apiary with Tash and Jason Roebig of Bee All Natural Bee-keeping.  

The 7 hours of fun, excitement and relaxation will fly by and before you know it you’ll be heading home with a bag full of chilli goodies, a stomach full of delicious food (chilli and non-chilli), some worn out but happy kids and a greater appreciation of those brave challengers who take to the stage to test their endurance in one of our 6 six challenges.
