SAUSAGE SIZZLE THROWDOWN RULES/TERMS
The event is sanctioned by Competitive Eating Australia
Each competitor will be provided with
• A loaf of White Bread
• A bottle each of Tomato Sauce, BBQ Sauce and Mustard, each in a squeeze bottle.
• Platter of Sausages (15)
• Bottled Water
Competitors must place their hands flat on the table prior to the start of the competition. The judge will count in the start of the competition with a 3-2-1 count down.
Sausage and Bread must be constructed and sauced by the competitor one at a time sequentially. Each contestant must place a single sausage inside a single slice of bread and apply sauce to at least 50% of the sausage before eating commences.
Failure to construct and adequately sauce the Sausage and Bread will result in a 1 Sausage and Bread penalty.
Only one Sausage and Bread can be consumed at a time.
Construction of the next Sausage and Bread can commence only after the first Sausage and Bread is completely in the mouth (The previous Sausage and Bread can be chewed while the next Sausage and Bread construction begins).
At no time can there be two (2) pieces of bread in competitors’ hands at any time, or a 1 Sausage and Bread penalty will be applied. Consumption of the next Sausage and Bread can commence while there is still food in the mouth.
All Sausage and Bread must be consumed.
Any parts of the Sausage and Bread dropped either on the table or floor must be eaten for the Sausage and Bread to count.
Failure to do so will result in a 1 Sausage and Bread penalty.
Dunking the Sausage and Bread in the water or pouring of water over the Sausage and Bread is not permitted.
“Picnic Style” rules apply At the end of the 3 minutes, chimpmunking will be allowed. Water may be consumed once the timer has elapsed.
A strict 30 second period to present an open mouth will be enforced. Should an empty mouth not be shown, one (1) entire Sausage and Bread will be deducted from the overall total, regardless of the amount eaten.
A judge will count each finished sausage sandwich successfully eaten in a total time of 3 minutes by way of how many sausages remain. In the chance that two individuals have eaten the same number of sausages, half sausages eaten will be counted.
In the event of a tie across either a single or both rounds, a head-to-head battle will take place to see who can construct, sauce and eat one Sausage and Bread the fastest. Competitors must place their hands flat on the table prior to the start of the tiebreaker. The judge will count in the start of the competition with a 3-2-1 count down. The competitor who shows an open mouth first will be declared the winner.
The Grand Champion, Runner up and Third Place will be determined by the highest amount of eaten sausage sandwiches across the 2 rounds.
All contestants will be required to sign a waiver.
The judge’s decision is final and no correspondence will be entered into. The prize(s) must be taken as stated and cannot be deferred.
