A battle to find the UK’s best burger is being launched in Birmingham.
The man behind this year’s pop-up phenomenon, Rib Nights , is tweaking his recipe to create UK Burger Battle, a new monthly cook-off testing the best burgers in the land.
Launching on Sunday, December 14, each instalment will see diners compare burgers from two different teams before voting for their favourite.

The monthly UK Burger Battle will be held at Spotlight, the home of Digbeth Dining Club

  Battle boss Ahmed Kage is adapting his successful Rib Nights formula for the burger event at Spotlight, the home of Digbeth Dining Club .
He said: “Burgers have always been popular, either as a quick bite to eat or as a main meal, but the recent resurgence has come about because we’re suddenly seeing really high quality products.
“There are teams that are dry-aging beef for longer than the standard 21 days and using interesting ingredients from black pudding to ox cheeks.
“They’re also using their own freshly made buns and cheese, making top quality food.”
Taking a less formal approach than Rib Nights, each ticket buys two burgers and a drink between 4 and 8pm before the votes are counted and the winner announced.
Diners can expect retro games, a close hand magician and DJs.

Kicking off the series, Herefordshire outfit The Beefy Boys will take on Warwickshire’s The Flying Cows .
The Flying Cows from Rugby launched three years ago, using beef from pedigree grass-fed Dexter cattle on frontman and professional chef Dan Bachelor’s family farm.
The Beefy Boys started after pictures of their own garden barbecue food went viral on Facebook.
This year they won the title of Best Burger at the UK’s top barbecue competition, Grillstock , and are now competing against 50 others for the title of World’s Best Burger and $10,000 at the World Food Championships in Las Vegas .

Early bird tickets at £20 go on sale at midday tomorrow at
See “UK Burger Battle” on Facebook or @UKBurgerBattle            

UK Burger Battle hopes to mimic the success of Rib Nights events at The Church Inn.
