They told Foti they do a lot of beef brisket and pork ribs when they barbecue back home, but they also like to grill up some lamb cuts now and again.

The team says they hauled 40 pounds of prime brisket all the way from the land down under, going through customs with their prize beef.

The Australian team is just one of those featured in the competition which begins tonight and ends on Saturday.
