For the second year in a row, Fritz Kutzer has proven he’s the “best of the wurst”.
Fritz, from Kingaroy Butchery, took home the Grand Champion trophy for his venison-flavoured wurst at the annual Wide Bay Wurst Off on Saturday night.
The Wurst Off, which was held in Murgon this year, is a fundraiser for the Karate Union of Australia.
This is the fourth year that it has been organised.
Four South Burnett butcher shops took part: Top Of The Town Butchery (Murgon), Shoppingworld Butchery (Kingaroy), Kingaroy Butchery, and Ryan’s Butchery (Wondai).
Three judges did a blind tasting of the 17 wursts submitted by the entrants.
Chief judge Jason Ford said the wursts were judged on appearance, aroma, texture and flavour.
There was also a People’s Choice category where people could vote for their favourites.
