DARREN 'DAZZA' COOK is a loveable suburban everyman with a long-established belief that his family is related to Captain James Cook. Dazza harbours a passion for barbequing, but when he accidentally gives his neighbours food poisoning at his popular regular Saturday BBQ, Dazza's reputation and dignity are on the line. To make amends he seeks tutelage from the tyrannical Scottish chef known simply as THE BUTCHER. Together they enter an international barbecue competition, pitting Dazza's homespun recipes against the world's best BBQ chefs.
