Rocky Danner, (Ex Vice President of the World Body) who flew in from the States and took the photograph was instrumental in both team and Competitor briefings and helped the Organiser oversee the contest. Yet declined to Judge the Final as he indicated he had too many friends to lose.
Three of the team have already competed at the World Championships in America before in 2007 and this year they get to go again as the Country winners for Great Britain.  The same three have also their own Barbecue interests :  Jeremy with  a Henley based company who's team also provided a sampling stand for the general public on this contest.
