Not exactly true.

Kubiak said he'd like to get Keenum in there but it'll be Beck ahead of Keenum.

With how good Beck looked, with how much time is left...I think Keenum will get a few 4th qtr snaps tonight.

Did you know the Texas Tumbleweed is a sage bush imported from Germany. It was drought resistant food for cattle.
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.

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.
