The heat is set to be turned up at Bunnings in Armidale, with snags once again sizzling on Saturday mornings for the iconic Bunnings barbecue.
Whether you're a tomato or barbecue sauce person, or an onion or no onion customer, many locals were united in their longing for a Bunnings sausage during the COVID-19 shutdown.
But, no more.
The grill will kick into gear at the Armidale store on Saturday, and the sausage sizzle will be run regularly from now on.
The weekly event doesn't just fill bellies, it helps fill the coffers of different community groups.
Armidale Dumaresq Lions Club, whose members are regularly seen outside Bunnings on a weekend, will be the first local group to pick up the tongs.
The barbecues are a valuable fundraiser for the service club, and when the barbecues were stopped this year, Bunnings took the generous step of donating $50,000 to support Lions Australia's vital work in the community.
"It means so much to so many people. It supports a lot of community causes and raises a lot of money for the local community. It is loved."
The company announced last week the Saturday sizzles would restart across its NSW stores from October 10, with COVID safe measures in place.
"It's all about making sure everyone is safe," Ms Poole said.
"There is extra hygiene and cleaning taking place, social distancing, and we'll be using the NSW app so customers can check in to make sure it's safe for the customers and the community."
