Mackay delivers winning Aussie Pie

By Tammy Laval

There is nothing like an Aussie Pie … Ozzie Ozzie Oi Oi Oi, right!

Whether its covered with peas, sauce, or as some say it’s all about the filling … regardless of your selection, there is nothing like getting your gob around a hot pie before the flies turn-up, or the sauce or insides start to drip down your arms.

So how great is it, that here in Mackay we get to celebrate not only the great Aussie icon, the pie, but the official title of – The Great Aussie Pie!

Yes you heard right, we have the best pies in all of Oz, in our own backyard thanks to the Pinnacle Pub.

The Pinnacle Hotel (newly revamped) located along the Mackay-Eungella highway, was recognized on the national stage by taking out six awards for their famous pies.

Co-Owner Andrew Guthries commented on facebook the judges were extremely impressed, phoning them to cite “they were amazed at what we do”.  Their pie processing starts at 5am every morning and hand-making at least 1500 pies a week to serve people every day.  Their entry the same pies deliver to the public, unlike some of the specialty made creations

Their wins included one gold, three silver and two bronze, from among the hundreds of competitors at the annual Great Aussie Pie Competition.  Check them out on Facebook

The winning pies were:

Gold: Gourmet Vegetarian – Veg

Silver: Gourmet Red Meat – Steak Potato

Silver: Gourmet Red Meat – Steak Bacon Cheese

Silver: Gourmet Red Meat – Steak Pepper

Bronze: Plain Mince-Chunky – Combo

Bronze: Gourmet Red Meat – Steak Bacon Mushroom
