british-bbq-150.jpgFood writer Oliver Thring ponders whether the British will ever truly understand barbecue: "The intricacies of the [different styles], the esoteric subtleties of the different condiments and sauces, the relative merits of the smoke from mesquite or pecan wood, are not our concern at the moment.
