Masters of flame

We are proud to announce the dawn of a new era in competitive outdoor cookery with the first unique contest to test the skills of the nation’s grillers, smokers and outdoor chefs – Masters of Flame!

This is an event like no other and features preliminary rounds online, where entrants will submit video & recipe details of dishes that they hope will see them through to the final live rounds stage. 

The public will help us choose the very best of the bunch through our social media channels and select the very best outdoor cooks in the country to take part in the live knockout competition at Smoke & Fire (West) in September. 

The live finals will see cooks demonstrate their skills through a range of themed rounds, celebrating some of the most iconic fire cooking cultures from around the world. They will be provided with a range of ingredients and a theme from which to draw inspiration. 

Round 1North African & Middle Eastern Inspired
Round 2South American Inspired
Round 3Asian Inspired
Round 4Southern African Inspired
Round 5The Mystery Ingredients Final Round

This will give the finalists a chance to show their own twists using a wide range of ingredients and influences, as we honour all of the amazing culinary styles that have influenced outdoor cookery but with a final twist being a mystery round in the final where the last two chefs will be given a range of surprise ingredients from which they must put together a dish that represents their own signature style and their personality as a Master of Flame!

The winner will receive not only fantastic prizes from our great sponsors, but an opportunity to work with us at Smoke & Fire in using our online platform to continue to share their outdoor cookery skills online with a host of opportunities in the future. We cannot wait to see who will join us or what they will cook in this huge event. 

Application forms for the preliminary rounds are available below. Applicants will be given full information and a schedule for preliminary rounds. All live finals to be held at Smoke & Fire (West) on the weekend of the 11th & 12th of September 2021.
