I saw the Oktoberfest thread and had to post this

I am in Germany right now for work and just got back from dinner

Want to know how the Germans do pork?

We had dinner in Dusseldorf tonight (its 8:46pm as I type this)

This is pork leg, wienersnitzel, smoked pork slices (tasted kind of like ham) and some unidentifiable fried veggie, plus mashed potates and kraut on the side. And some amber colored beverage, not sure what it was but had many of them, they just kept bringing them!!!

Hamchen! I've been to Cologne a couple of times, very nearby, and had similar meals, great stuff. The beer in that area is normally kolsch but is typically lighter in color. But since it's in that 1/4 liter glass it's probably just 1 breweries take on the mix as having the proper glass for the style of bier is VERY important there!!

Enjoy your trip and may it be a safe one.

Looks awesome! That looks like schweinshaxe (pork knuckle or ham hocks if you will) in the middle? I could be wrong though. My parents just came back from Munich and my dad can't stop raving about the pork knuckle and of course the beer. We're trying to replicate it here pretty soon and I'll be sure to have some pron of our attempt.

I really dont know what it was called. The waiter was translating all the menu items, when he said "pork leg" I told him to stop, thats what I wanted LOL

Looks like a nice spread brotha, at least I'm not the only one that gets weird looks at restaurants :becky:

Beer me ......please! great to see such a different meal..Do they have wings over there?

Brine pig leg and set saide a few days, and then boil or simmer 10 hours, finally smoking@ 300F for 2 hours. I do this way in China following Germany style

Sehr schon!
That is schweinehaxe/porkknuckle for sure!
Looks like there's some cracklin on there as well?

back on American soil. Feels good.

Not sure about chicken wings LOL

and no cracklin, maybe you are looking at the onions

but one thing was weird, people sit at tables outside the bars at night in 30 degree weather and eat and carry on like its the middle of summer. Some places have heaters, others did not
