We made a simple pergola from an old garden tent to sit under and drink some beer 🙂 – we wanted to give it some “beach bar look”. We used the frame of an old party garden tent and attached several 2 x 5 cm bars as a roof construction.
A friend made me a steel divider sheet for the barrel grill (if you like: See here, here, here and here) so I can use it as a simple smoker. Basically it works like those Weber-fireboxes you can buy at the hardware store: The idea is to put the coals into the left half of the firepit, setting the divider and thus having a zone of indirect heat and smoke on the right side. Simple, effective and it works (somehow) 🙂
Just in case anybody cares: We had a relaxed, plentiful and tasty BBQ yesterday evening with some friends. Finally again something that didn’t involve charring supermarket pork chops on the grill but a barbecue fattie for four hours in the (makeshift) smoker and nice dutch oven full of Chicken and veggies 🙂
Yeah! Today is the the day! How happy we all are. Today the “European General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR)” comes into force… I have an opinion on this and I’ll just quote again here what I already wrote on my privacy page.
Edit: Here’s a great Article on the topic on “Tichys Einblick” (german language), a well respected german political blog. It says it all.
This is a highly interesting (german language) video about the function of the torque converter that drives every car with an automatic transmission. I didn’t know that before and learned a lot!
Finally, I too can post an image of the countryside where I am right now.
Tasty, easy and convenient – grubbed some of them just minutes ago. Available at your least distrusted supermarkets all over the country, or over here.
No, they don’t pay me for this.
Yesterday I made smoked sea salt. I saw a dude on the interwebz using some on a flank steak these days and it looked delicious. So I wanted to try it too.
