‘PUB landlord’ Al Murray was joining members of the British Sausage Appreciation Society in Sheffield today to judge the region’s tastiest banger.
The regional heat of the British Banger Awards takes place at the Milestone pub, Green Lane, from 4pm.
Al will be tasting local sausages and presenting an award to the local butcher crowned regional winner.
Eight local butchers have been shortlisted in this year’s British Sausage Week sausage competition.
They are among butchers from all over the country who have entered this year’s competition, submitting their tastiest and most innovative sausages.
A spokesman for the competition organisers said: “There are two categories: Stand Up for British Bangers and Iconic Sausages.”
The eight Yorkshire & Humber butchers were shortlisted from hundreds of entries.
The winner will be presented with their award and a donation to their charity of choice.
