The Wacky Brits

The Telegraph has an interesting article on barbeque in the UK. Or more to the point, an interpretation of barbeque in the US from a British viewpoint.

It's full of gems. Such as:

Quite what you might be smoking tends to depend on the region. In the south east, barbecue refers to pork, Texans (not surprisingly) prefer beef, usually brisket, and Kentucky is known for mutton.
Kentucky mutton barbeque? Hmm, I'll have to try that.

Or how about:
Barbecue sauces One of the best US brands, Stubbs, can be found at www.essentialbbq.co.uk. Tesco and Waitrose stock the Bone Suckin' range of sauces and rib rubs. Paul Newman's sauces are also widely available.
Stubbs one of the best? I'll grant it's better than Kraft, but one of the best? And Bone Suckin Sauce has made it all the way to London? Say it ain't so!

Frankly, I don't see how they can possibly make barbeque in the UK. Think of how expensive it would be to ship all the North Carolina oak wood they'd need.
