Rod’s Meats owner Kieran Hinck recently won an award for his Strasberg.MONIQUE PRESTON November 15, 2012 4:33am
Kieran Hinck has been producing Strasberg for about 12 months and he thinks he has the recipe just right.
He is not the only one who thinks so, with his Strasberg being named the best Strasberg in Victoria on the weekend.
Mr Hinck’s Echuca business, Rod’s Meats, won the Victorian Sausage King and Smallgoods Award for its Strasberg from about a dozen other competitors.
The Strasberg had earlier been crowned the regional winner in the competition, winning Rod’s Meats a place in the state final.
While Rod’s Meats last year won the regional competition for the best ham, the weekend’s win is the highest accolade the business has received.
‘‘Winning the state one is huge,’’ Mr Hinck said.
‘‘That’s as big as you can get.
‘‘We’re all stoked.
‘‘The boys (staff) reckon its unreal.’’
