Best Beefburger is from JC Douglas, St Boswell
Holiday on hold as Scottish Beefburger champion celebrates success at Perth.

There was justification for Craig Douglas postponing the holiday arranged by his wife, Kelly, to celebrate his 40th birthday on Thursday 11th May. The reigning Scottish Pork Sausage and Scottish Beef Sausage Champion wanted to attend the Scottish Meat Trade Fair on Sunday prior to his major milestone and when his Beefburger was named the best in Scotland, not only was he relieved to have cancelled his wife, Kelly's plans, but he had something more to celebrate.

After the selection of the top five in the recent evaluation held in Dunfermline, the best five beefburgers were mystery shopped and then submitted before three expert judges at the St Andrews Links Trust.

The judges were:_
Scott Dougal from Strathtyrum Catering, (former Scottish Chef of the year 2000),
Ewen Bowman operations director for St Andrews Links Trust, and
Ian Macdonald, Executive head chef for St Andrews Links Trust and vice president of the Federation of Chefs Scotland.

The Links Trust serves hundreds of burgers to golfers every year and although the three judges were very impressed with all the finalists, they proclaimed the St Boswells burger as their favourite.
