Line forms as My Kitchen Rules teams set up sausage sizzle

UPDATE: Two Queensland couples competing in the cooking show My Kitchen Rules took their skills out of the kitchen to help feed volunteers and residents in North Bundaberg.

As the big clean-up continued, Hervey Bay couple Dan and Steph Mulheron and Sunshine Coast brother and sister team Jake and Elle Harrison set up in the Thirsty Camel car park near the northern end of the Burnett Traffic Bridge.

A line quickly formed as they set up their sausage sizzle.

"We're Queensland teams, and Queenslanders help Queenslanders," Ms Mulheron said.

"All we can do is make people smile and put food in their bellies."

She said the two couples drove up to Bundaberg and had managed to get a look at the damage.

"It's devastating," Ms Mulheron said.

EARLIER: There's nothing like the smell of a home-cooked meal to lift flagging spirits, and the Queensland teams from the television cooking show My Kitchen Rules will be in Bundaberg on Tuesday cooking for the community.

Brother and sister team from the Sunshine Coast, Jake and Elle, and Hervey Bay duo Dan and Steph will be setting up the barbies at North Bundaberg to cook lunch for anyone who wants to turn up.

"People have been so generous in assisting us to pull this thing together. There is so much donated material and I have to pay a huge thanks to Coles for their wonderful help," Elle said.

The couple will be cooking from 11am, serving up sausages and steak sandwiches.

"We would love to meet with as many of the flood-affected residents as possible," Elle said.

The teams will be at the north end of the traffic bridge in the Thirsty Camel car park.

Residents from the south side of the bridge can walk across to meet with the teams and enjoy the barbecue.
