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 :wink:
Please, forgive any of my mis-spellings and have a nice day :D

Hi Frank!!! I actually used to work for a company based in The Netherlands...Groeneveld...every heard of it? LOL!!

Anyway, glad you found the forum and are enjoying the podcasts!! What kind of access to charcoal do you have over there? Can you get lump charcoal? :?:

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.

Holland & The Netherlands is the same. and Deutch is German, the country Germany is just off to our left, and no, i don't speak it ;)

The J.S.F. It's a hot topic over here, the goverment is under fire since the project is much over it's financial forcast... but it's more expensive tou bail out right now then it is to stay in...

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.

On your profile you have a website link that links to a blog and pictures, there was a picture of what looks like someone grillin' in the bathtub .... what is the deal with that?

The blog you refer to translates intoEverything for the winter BBQ'er

Those pic's are from a wintergrill session from (former)Russia when the outside temp was -55C (-67,0F) and a proof that no matter the temp, it's always possible to grill ;)

That is wild ... I don't think my bride will let me do that, but I guess we don't get temperatures like that in Ohio either. Thanks for explaining.

Re: Hello from Gouda, The Netherlands
 
Could you make something from the rest of it? I mean, In Dutch, It's selfexplaining, but from a foreigners p.o.v.?
