See...when I hear/read "Volksfest", I expect to see a bunch of old Volkswagens. At least that is what the Volksfest is around here where I live. :shrugs:

Hey, I know that fella ...

Our infiltration techniques are pretty crafty http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/25.gif

I know of this "Brigade"

Seems that everyone is using Graf these days.

Cel ... if you ever come over the pond, the "O" makes both Beef and Pork ribs that you'll never forget. I actually prefer the Beef ribs, slow roasted.

Anyways, is it true that Germans normally don't eat ribs in their cooking?

I always heard that and during our "Volksfest" our German partnership units were always the first in the BBQ Rib line. http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/16x16_smiley-wink.gif

So a trade, we give you BBQ ribs and you give us space for McDonalds!!! And we gave you Berchtesgaden and Ober-Salzburg back about 10 years ago. http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/88.gif http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/25.gif

Ehmmm...yes...somehow...there are the "Rippchen" i heard of (the equivalent to spare ribs, i believe)

The only rib related german food i know but on the other hand , im not a expert.

Never saw them never ate them.

Of course you can get spare ribs in the local Steakhouses. (For high restaurant prices)

I take it that the "O" was confronted with the obligatory bavarian "Spanferkel" ? http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_biggrin.gif

I'd be up to eating some of that "spanferkel"....little bit of bbq sauce, and I bet it'd be perfect!

...Something tells me that "Der Konig" aka "Elvis" didn't have to push his vehicle out of the mud at Graf like we had to.

It was mainly a Public Relations Stunt for him to enlist and serve in Germany. He even mad a movie about it where he falls for a Local German Girl.

G.I. Blues (http://www.imdb.com/title/tt0053848/)

In reality he moved in high circles, was a senior officer's driver (not too busy) and did free performances. He was also allowed to live outside the Barracks and on the German Economy, usually unheard of for a single soldier. He met his future wife there, Pricilla.

My father actually ran into him there while they were both stationed there at the same time. He was pretty friendly and invited my father's baseball team back to his "Pad"

My father was very sad when he died. I never got caught up in the whole "Elvis" thing. He's like the only person in the USA whose date of death is celebrated like a holiday.

I've had Rippchen, but you are right, I never saw pure ribs on any German Speisekart (sp?)

I see the "O" still knows his Gasthaus Deutsch http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/16x16_smiley-wink.gif Very good


Yes, i bet the local "Church of the King" celebrates his birthday and date of death in Graf too.

I remember seeing those...what is that in english ?.....life-size cardboard standups ? almost in every shop and bar.

He was everywhere...looking at me... http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/shady.gif
