From a food blogger buddy in England, who emailed to let me know that a U.S.-style barbecue competition and food show has arrived in the U.K. (with a link to his post, which has more info):
Just thought you and your readers would be amused and interested to know us 'limeys' are celebrating barbecues US style this summer.
Grillstock will be the UKs "first full-blown US style barbecue competition and food show" and we can't wait:
We've still got a way to go before we can compete with the BBQ legends of the US, but at least we're having a go.
All the best from the U.K.
