Ben Merrington & Jon Finch

Pioneers of the American barbecue scene in the UK since 2010, Jon & Ben created the original barbecue and music festival drawing 20,000 meat fans annually to their weekend of meat, music and mayhem.
Having created the biggest barbecue experience the UK has seen, the pair are experts on all things low ‘n’ slow having opened five American smokehouse restaurants across the UK as well as co-authored an Amazon best-selling barbecue cookbook.
“We’ve been bringing the very best in live-fire cooking and southern style-hospitality to the UK for almost a decade. Now we’re bringing all of our favourite elements to the Live Fire Arena at Black Deer for what promises to be one of the the best showcases of outdoor cooking and lifestyle talent the UK has ever seen”…
