Veterans of this scenario know that as Paulaner‘s
Oktoberfest brew is mere steps away in each direction… you just chill
and wait in line. During this part of the experience you will hear
various newbies demanding that "these better be the best fricken’
potatoes I’ve ever had." Once they finally get a bowl, there’s rarely
any bitching.


Here’s The Man prepping a new batch: a pound of butter; freshly sliced potatoes; then tomatoes, onions, green peppers, spices and finally – sliced sausages.


Then some expert timing and a quick steam under some foil yields the
delicious result. There is talk of an elaborate 10×4 foot additional
grill for next year… whatever, this ritual is all part of the fun!
