Cook Cartel

We are the Cook Cartel! Cook Cartel is an award winning Competition Barbecue Team, hailing from the deep Westside of Auckland City, New Zealand. We’re a family team, consisting of Mike, Steve and the old man, Brian aka 'The Captain'.

We've got a super competitive nature with a passion for good BBQ, so we’re out to test against the best in New Zealand. Taking on the competition barbecue scene in the Jack Daniel's New Zealand Barbecue Alliance events. If you see us at a comp, stop by for a drink and a yarn and pick up some of our rad merch to support the cause!"
