Newbie from across the Atlantic

Just want to start out by saying what a great forum this is. Lurking around for a few days and decided to join. I'm an American living in Europe for the past 20 years. Started Q'ing about 3 years ago. I used to be a rib boiler but I saw the light. I have an modified ECB and a modified Charbroil Silver Smoker.

Smokemaster, good to have you on board. I'm sure the whole reason you are living in Europe will all come out someday in the Blue Room. By the way, how is BBQ perceived wherever you are in Europe, is it popular, is it a growing hobby/art, is it mainly grilling being called BBQ?

So, we've got USA, Canada, Europe, and Texas. Greg, you need to add "International" to the forum name. :P

Well thanks Greg, the next time I want to know anything about European BBQ, I won't waste my time asking a European, I'll just send my questions to you. Are you familiar with any other continents attitudes or practices relative to BBQ, just in case it should come up in the future? [smilie=bowdown.gif] [smilie=a_biggrin.gif] [smilie=a_biggrin.gif]

Thanks for all the warm greetings.

I live in Germany, near the Belgium and Luxemburg borders.

Thanks. The forum won't let me post pics yet. But I've got plenty.

Most Germans consider grilling as BBQ. My friends have learned the difference. I keep telling them "Low and slow is the way to go". They love real BBQ.

There are a few German BBQ forums, but they have separate sections for BBQ, Grilling, Dutch Oven cooking, Rotisseries, indirect and Schwenk (swinging) grills.

More people are getting into Q'ing American style.
