Well, when you think of it, it is probably a good idea I sit this out. They would have a great time at the border looking at the declaration sticker which reads "dried herbs"!

Seriously, you shouldn't have to much trouble, specially since rubs have a lot of spices that are definitely NOT suspicious!

As for serving size I only had in mind enough for a family size dinner, what ever that might be. I would imagine it would depend on what exactly you are making. Yes I completely agree the thought of any going to waste would be frustrating, but we also want to make sure they have enough for their whole meal and not just a "pork chop's" worth!
So 5-7 T worth was just a number I just put out there, the main idea is enough for a meal....
Will do. I'll start making the packages this week to send off.

I hope I don't sound TOO dense, but this is what I get so far: I will make up 10 zip lock baggies with 5-7 Tbs of rub/spice/dip,etc. Attach a card listing ingrediants and what to do with it. But then where do i send it, does someone need my address, and when I send it, do I enclose one of these flat rate priority envelopes, good for up to 4 lbs for $4.80 so the others packs can be returned to me? My brain functions at different levels sometimes, so someone help me out. Thanks

LOL ~ I did too about 8 years ago. He put "Kona" on the declaration label and it was assumed it was coffee. IT WASN'T. LOL

Granniero I sent you a private message on the 15th giving you my address and details....did you not get it? Let me know and I will send it again

And yes you are correct on all the other details. Just remember the 5-7 T is just a guideline you can put less or more according to what you think is needed for a family meal's worth.
