Speight’s Saves the Summer Barby
Win one of 50 trips home for a mate from anywhere in the world
Every year, expats overseas dread the change in season. It’s because they know that back home here in New Zealand the temperatures start to rise, the jandals are pulled out from the back of the cupboard, the BBQ gets dusted off and the invites go out to friends to bring some meat round for a barby.
We don’t want our friendly foe overseas dreading the season’s change any longer so Speight’s has stepped in to change this. Speight’s is offering 50 people the chance to fly a family member or mate home from anywhere in the world to have a classic Kiwi barbeque at their house!

What you'll need
ONE 1.5-2 KG BONELESS RIB EYE ROAST
Sea salt and a pepper grinder
Oil to cook with
A handful of fresh rosemary, thyme and oregano if available
A few lemons
Speight’s Gold Medal Ale or Speight’s Summit
Place the meat on a board and with a sharp knife make some slits across the top-side of the roast in a criss cross pattern - first one way then the next. This will help the marinade get into the meat and also go nice and crisp when cooked.
Place the meat in a dish, chop the herbs and garlic roughly, and rub them over the meat. Drizzle with a little oil and rub that in well too. Leave to marinate for 2-3 hours or overnight in the fridge if you have the time.
When cooking a big piece of meat we need to cook it slowly and not directly over a flame. Remove the grill plates and place an aluminium drip tray over the middle burner with a little Speight's in it. This will help to keep the meat moist and also help keep the BBQ clean. Replace the grill plates. Pre-heat the BBQ to 200C without turning on the burner where the aluminium drip tray is sitting.
Season the meat well with salt and pepper then place on the pre-heated BBQ over the drip tray. Cook with the lid down for 1 hour 10 minutes for a medium roast. Lift the lid every 15 minutes or so and baste with herbs. Keep an eye on the liquid level in the drip tray and top up with a beer when required - don't let it burn dry.
Carefully remove meat from grill onto a board and let it rest in a warm place for 15 minutes before carving.
