Hello hutch. How is the weather back home??
Thanks for the offer of help! I'm in guys! BUT! and there always is one; here is the rub ( pardon the pun ) import duties/laws. And product ingredients. Because of my ignorance I learned the HARD way the first time. When my first "care package" arrived here it cost me an extra £120 ( $185 ) import tax! I travel back and forth as often as I can and you would be surprised at what I "smuggle" back packages marked "Birthday gifts"! There are some items that can not be brought from one country to another; "legally". In a rub for instance; is there a meat by-product in it? If there is then you can not import it ( well NOT black and white but is an issue ). IF there is a similar product here ( even though maybe better or worse ) you are not allowed to import it because the Government is protecting British business. YEAH! I don't know the legal wording. For the Guys back in the U.S.: I cannot import Lay's potato chips. A company here makes something similar ( not as good in my opinion, BUT ) I CAN get Fritos! I CAN get Ruffles; and the British companies are now producing their own version but I think it may now be too late.
ANYWAY! Fantastic idea but I think it would be a nightmare for us to actually pull it off.
Just as a couple examples guys of the differences: L&P Worcestershire Sauce ( wuss-ter-sure for you U.S. guys. Heck! I didn't know how to pronounce it until I got here! ). Well! It is not the same here. As it was invented here I have to assume this is the "Real Deal" and was changed a little for the U.S. palate.
BEEF! In the U.S. we tend to "finish" our steers by feeding corn based feed ( for the British guys: that is a non-sweet version of corn on the cob. Grown for animal food; mostly ). The British seem to "finish" their beef on what I can only guess is a wheat based feed? ANYWAY! The point is the beef tastes different on both sides. IT'S A COW! You would not think. But it is different.
ENOUGH of my rambling. IF someone can devise a plan to make this work; I AM IN!! Keep Smokin!
