Bringing BBQ parts back from the USA

Recommended Posts

Posted (edited)

Folks, I'm off to LA to see a buddy of mine in May.

Whilst there I'm planning to pickup a few parts for my Yoder Smoker and bring them back in my hold luggage. One of the parts is a steel heat diffuser with access door, it measures 75cm x 45cm and weighs roughly 7KG:

I've got a Samsonite Duffle big enough to take it back and it won't bust the 23KG weight limit for the airline we're travelling with.

Question is will they let me out of the county with it, being how we know the US authorities are with security etc.? And I guess the back into the UK too?

How can they. It just a bit of metal. Bring the receipt and paperwork with you it should be fine. Then again, americans are paranoid

Thanks chaps all encouraging views! I'm going to bring back an insulating cover for the Yoder as well and the value of both items is below the threshold for being tugged for tax.

Will keep a copy of the invoice inside the suitcase so if customs (on either side) decide to have a nose, they can at least work out what is. Rather then guessing if it's a part from an armoured tank and I end up with the white glove treatment:D

With any luck they might be a smoke head as well
