Hello from Gouda, The Netherlands

Hello,
My name is Frank, 39. I'm a debt collector and 5 years ago I bought my first 22,5 weber OTG. I'm a fan of listing to (bbq) podcast's, that's how i find this forum. I'm married, 2 kids and enjoy to bbq (or better grill) the year round, and yes, I grilled on both X-mas days.

My setup looks like this:




I hope to learn from here, ans possible to share how we do it, over here
Please, forgive any of my mis-spellings and have a nice day

Re: Hello from Gouda, The Netherlands

Hey Greg, There are 2 compagnies that spring to mind, a company regarding safety en invirement, and an optomm... optrom.. (for eyewear/glasses).

Charcoal, not a big fan, I use brikkettes 95% of the time, but whe can get lump, altough not in the big size bags, normaly lump is sold in a 8/10 liter bag, enough for 2 grill sessions.

A couple of friends are eggheads, went commercial and can get their hands on orrigenal BGE lump, the big bag's, so it's not to hard to get it over here.

Re: Hello from Gouda, The Netherlands

Well thanks for the geography lesson. I shoulda stayed awake in 5th Grade..kick kick I would take a wild guess since Jimmy Carter on Steroids is in charge..they will bail. Them folks never met a defense budget cut they didn't like. We can just give them some flowers or something. Dang hippys are running the world.
