Schaub doesn't play slow wtf he just has confidence in the pocket and looks down field oblivious to the pressure idk why everyone thinks Yates is better then Schaub do people forget Schaub played without a run game and still put up numbers and don't tell me we had slaton because he was never the same after his neck injury so honestly Yates just has a luxury of having great players around him and a hell of a offensive guru in kubiak I like Yates but never would I say he is better then Schaub

Well I'm not so sure that BBQ is traditionally German. I think Germans think that BBQ is traditionally American.
Are you sure about the tumblewood? If it grows in Germany it has to be from the north. I'm not that familiar with the vegetation up north. BUt down in the South or in Austria I don't know any plant that would fit the description. COuld be wrong about both things though.

The Texas BBQ is a compilation of various regions...Texas had an influx of various regions during early and mid 1800s.

There's a Carolina influence, a Cajun influence, and the drier Mexican flavors.

The fixings, such as slaw (cabbage) and pickles and potato salad? German all the way...as is the pork sausage that is a Texas best IMO.

Well I'm not so sure that BBQ is traditionally German. I think Germans think that BBQ is traditionally American.
Are you sure about the tumblewood? If it grows in Germany it has to be from the north. I'm not that familiar with the vegetation up north. BUt down in the South or in Austria I don't know any plant that would fit the description. COuld be wrong about both things though.

I learned the tumbleweed history taking a tour through Hueco Tanks in West Texas. National Park Ranger seemed to know his stuff. The bbq observation is based on a couple of trips taken over the last 15 years around Bavaria (Munich) and on up through Dusseldorf.

Hueco Tanks is an awesome little national monument. Tons of history, from the mammoths smoothing out rocks with their rear ends used as a mating sign a couple thousand years ago, to the Tigua and Commanche Indians and Mexican Soldiers battling it out, then the Butterfield stagecoach route to the west coast before the railroad to the present. Highly recommended. 30 miles east of El Paso off Montana avenue. Tons more I left off (plants Indians used for ritual and to paint themselves). Also was educated on the role of imported sagebrush (tumbleweed). Apparently it's an import.

We used to camp out there as kids before they roped it off. When we stopped burning our campfires under an overhung rock the soot fell away and underneath were kilroy was here messages written into the ceiling rock by Travelers on the Stagecoach. The stagecoach ruts are preserved to show where they hauled ass through the rocks, avoiding Indian ambush. Fascinating. They put dates up around 1840-50.

I tip my hat to you. After some research I found you were right with the tumblwood. Has to be "Kali tragus" and it actually grows in Austria. Albeit in the steppe of eastern Austria and Hungary. Oops. Rep for you.
And "grillen" is definitly popular in Germany, I don't know if it is comparable to a Texas bbq though.

Our German family ran four butcher shops in Galveston. BBQ as people commonly think of now has little relation to German food other than the sausage which is a big part of Texas tradition.

As an aside, you would have had to punch my grandfather to get him to serve ketchup. I still crack up how my English grandmother on the other side was freaked out by my mom eating bacon and jelly on toast for breakfast. The sweets and meets things never stuck with me.

Tumbleweeds are not from Germany. There are multiple plants which get called tumbleweeds and they are asiatic and african.

OK last post and then you can go pull your own solo ignorance jerk. You said BBQ.

Yes potato salad, cole slaw and pickles have a strong although not unique German tradition. But once again you said BBQ. Find me a BBQ place serving tongue or oxtail which are new subjects and not BBQ although both were served in my family. Similarly while Germans use brisket they didn't bring over the BBQ cooking technique for it.

3. Grimes looked legit. I wouldn't risk him on the practice-squad.

4. Alan Ball played terrible. I wouldn't be surprised if he's cut tomorrow.

5. All four QB's looked good. I expected Schaub/Yates to, but Keenum/Beck did alright too.
