    Cool Greetings from The Netherlands

    Hi,

    I'm Ruud and from the east of The Netherlands.
    I've bought myself a WSM 18.5" last christmas and have been smoking ever since on almost a weekly basis.
    I also have a Weber Kettle 18.5" for grilling.

    I'm looking forward to learn a lot on this forum.

    Welcome, you've found a good place.

    Being from the east of the Netherlands, most likely means some big WW II battles were fought in your area ?

    I've always been impressed with the care given to graves of American servicemen in the Netherlands. Its very touching that those men who gave all are never forgotten.

    And is it The Netherlands or Holland ? Is there a difference ?

    The Netherlands is the correct name....
    But Holland is used as well, mainly by people from the North and Centre, hardly ever by those from the South.
    Once upon a time, the dominant provinces were North Holland, South Holland and Utrecht, hence the name Holland.....
