Even though Robyn is an integral part of the team, I am in charge. I ask for input and consider that input important.
We make financial decisions together, ie... new smokers, trailers, contest schedules, but on game day I am the captain.
We routinely have friends who "want to help", but that seemed to be a reason to party and get in the way. We have adopted a policy of "No Guests" until 2PM on turn in day. That way we can share the left overs and possibly the good news of a call.
We are entering our second full season and we are very serious about our comps. You cannot win when you have distractions and a lack of focus. As head cook I provide the focus for the entire contest.
