Our European editor, Harald Zoschke, reports from southwest Germany: We drove to the Swiss border south of the other end of Lake Constance (Bodensee). German BBQ smoker manufacturer "Farmergrill" threw a huge Grilling & BBQ Fest. Not only do they manufacure a wide line of quality smokers, they also run one of Germany’s largest BBQ retail stores–we saw most likely more than 100 different grills and smokers there. Reps from various manufacturers were present, and the "Barbecue Academy" smoked excellent brisket (they publish a German BBQ magazine and hold hands-on BBQ classes right here at Lake Constance). Good food, entertainment including electric bull riding (not HZ), chile pepper eating contest, the BBQ Train, at left, with twin smokers, and more. Great fun! Here are more pix:
