Wintergrilling in the Netherlands

Like most of you (I guess), I'm a member of several bbq fora, also a dutch bbq forum. From that 2 members suggested a few months ago to hold a virtual brisket party, an online low & slow cook-off. Then another member sugested to get together instead, and so we did. Yesterday, friday jan 8th.
We all brought our own bbq's with us. It started at 4pm.



A belgium member came also with his rig...


Someone also brought is fishsmoker:


More setup pics

Re: Wintergrilling in the Netherlands

Wow Frank that is quite a display of the bbq hobby at it's best. Would not have dreamed that kinda stuff be going on over there in Hans Christen Andersonville. It looked a lot like Texas cept for the snow. Nobody in Texas be dumb enough to cook in the snow Then when it showed the eels I knew it wasnt Texas. We use eels for bait sometimes when around the Ocean. Great job.

Re: Wintergrilling in the Netherlands

Actually think I have cooked in the snow a time or two come to thunk on it. It was most likely one of the forcible deals with duress involved if you get my drift.

We sure did, him and his wife&kids thought just to let us use their space and it would be a normal friday/saturday for them.

They where actually surprissed that they became the #1 guests and didn't have to cook dinner (or breakfast or lunch) and because the Belgian members were used to serve restaurant quallity, they where pamperd all the way. We are welcome any time of year they said...
