The Schwenker. A Saarland phenomenon.

The Saarlander is famous for his barbecue skills, and in the summer months the smell of pork steaks being grilled over an open flame – a process known as schwenken – is never far away. You can enjoy the end product of the schwenken at one of the Saarland's traditional festivals – the Saarlouis Emmes, for example, on the first weekend in June.
