Ireland’s biggest international BBQ event, the Big Grill Festival, is returning for its third year running as the art of fire and smoke once again hits Herbert Park in Ballsbridge, from 11th – 14th of August.

To celebrate the return of the JUST EAT Waiter Service we’re giving you the chance to win tickets to Big Grill! We have x2 pairs for Thursday, Friday, Saturday or Sunday.

On Twitter: Simply RT & tell us what day you would like to attend using the hashtag #JustEatWaiters and you could win one pair for that particular day.

On Facebook: Like and comment on our Big Grill post telling us what day you would like to win tickets for to be in with a chance of winning. 

The Big Grill has doubled in size since last year and will allow you to smell, taste and experience every kind of BBQ’ing style from around the globe, all washed down with some delicious drinks and craft beers. JUST EAT, Ireland’s leading takeaway app, will provide the JUST EAT Waiter Service. So while you sit back and relax, our waiters will take your smokins, queue for your favourite food and deliver it back to you faster than you can say “pass the barbeque sauce”!
