Mett or carrot – big NDR grill master duel |

Barbecue is probably the most popular German pastime. When the rust shines, everything is magically attracted. According to a survey, 97 percent of all Germans enjoy barbecuing, and almost 90 percent own their own grill. Two of Mecklenburg-Western Pomerania’s most passionate grill masters inspire with ingenious tricks, unique recipes and disarming charm. They compete against each other in a barbecue duel. One is a meat lover and the other likes it vegetarian. Steak and celery, pork and carrots.

At Rostock Harbor, the city’s most fashionable meeting place, Kuhlungsborn restaurateur Georg Bauch meets Stefan Pistole, a butcher and grill specialist from Roggentin, near Rostock. Your panel of judges: a group of young people celebrating summer and life by the water. Nutrition is especially important for 18- to 25-year-olds: sustainability, health, ingredients.

Vegetarian burgers or stuffed meatballs

Georg wants to convince diners with an all-vegan burger menu. He has fermented vegetables as a specialty dish and makes the patties on site. Stefan, on the other hand, wants to show off with a minkball, a typical American grill specialty: a beef ball stuffed with cheese and covered in bacon. The Master Butcher also offers a grilled dessert of cookies, chocolate, strawberries and marshmallows.
