Hi All,

I have lurked for a while, this is my first post. 

So I want to use wood for my bbq. 
My two options are Olive (from Spain) or Camelthorn / Kameeldoring from South Africa. 

The Olive is fine as it is within the EU and there is no problem with importing. 
However a friend mentioned to me, that any wood imported into the UK from outside the EU would be subject to strict EU rules, and would have to be sprayed for potential pests before it would be cleared by customs. If this is the case, I am not sure I am keen to cook food on open fire with wood that has been sprayed with chemicals. 

Any thoughts?
