Simple Pergola for the Hamburg Garden

We made a simple pergola from an old garden tent to sit under and drink some beer πŸ™‚ – 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. 


Countryside Impressions

Some impressions from the countryside in northern germany (lower saxony, near Hamburg):


Makeshift Smoker-Addon for the Barrel Grill

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) πŸ™‚


Relaxed BBQ in the Countryside

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 πŸ™‚


European General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR)

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.

So the lunatics in the european commission now make private site owners like me provide a several pages long privacy policy. …Because of Facebook reasons… you know… Don’t get me wrong: I do explicitly favor privacy on the Internet, but as usual the EU-Government overdoes it massively. IMHO, that Law is just another example of the usual green-party-inspired ridiculous EU wet dream.

Edit: Here’s a great Article on the topic on “Tichys Einblick” (german language), a well respected german political blog. It says it all.


How a Torque Converter Works

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! 


Countryside in Northern Germany

Finally, I too can post an image of the countryside where I am right now.


Instant Noodles

Since I’m a grass widower these days: These are the BEST instant asian noodles that I know (and that are widely available in Germany).

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.


Someone made Contact…

…to me because of my Drying Box. First of all, of course I feel honored by that. Second, he’s a fellow bavarian and a real, professional pianist which I find very cool! Pay him a visit here.


Smoked Sea Salt

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.
