A LARNE butcher is celebrating after his pork sausages were crowned the best bangers in Co Antrim.
Dominic Watt, of D Watt Quality Butchers on Upper Main Street, scooped the prestigious award at the NI Best Sausage competition 2011, organised by the Ulster Pork and Bacon Forum.
Over 200 businesses from across the Province were challenged to create the perfect sausage recipe, traditional or gourmet, using only Northern Irish pork.
The entries were sent off to be judged by a panel of experts, and the winners were presented with their prizes at the Templeton Hotel, Templepatrick.
Dominic said: “This is the first time we have won this award and we are delighted. We always knew we did a great pork sausage and now we have proved it.
“Hopefully we can lift the title again next year.”
