Port Macquarie butcher, Gregory Bisaro has brought home the bacon, taking out the third place slice of the 2019 National Sausage King competition.
Traditional Australian Beef sausages snagged the Waniora Village Butchery owner a saucy silver trophy from the Australian Meat Industry Council event in Fremantle on February 16.
"Happy with that - third in Australia. We can only go up from here in my second year at the competition," he said.
"Pretty much everything was well presented, I was happy with how they (snags) looked and the way they were positioned.
"Everything was really good. I did get to try the other pork and chicken entries."
The methodical meat merchant said he wasn't throwing in the competitive cleaver just yet as he sets his sights on more silverware for the freezer room later this year.
"I was away two weeks and the store was going really well, sausages were being made each day to keep up," he said.
"There's regional titles again in May, state titles in October and I'll aim to make nationals again by entering all categories this year."
Mr Bisaro also took time out to tour WA, visiting the sights of Margaret River, Rottnest Island, Albany and even developed a taste for some non-beef produce during his first visit to the west coast.
"It's a beautiful part of the world, I'd love to live over there," he said.
"The coast and colour of the water was fantastic. The seafood was fantastic."
Perth's Barbaro Brothers Quality Butchers was crowned this year's National Sausage King in the beef traditional Australian division. Perth's Crimea Quality Meats collected prizes for best Traditional Australian Pork and Australian Lamb.
