    Hello from Sweden!❤️

    Hi people!
    So happy i finally found this place.

    My name is Holm and i am 39 years old and live in Gothenburg Sweden.
    I am most likely the the most inexperienced one in here because i am still very green when it comes to BBQ.

    My BBQ passion came alive when Covid canceled the family-vacation to Italy and forced us to stay home. “What the hell am i supposed to do at home this summer” i thought.
    I suck at cooking so i decided to start with grilling in my backyard. Bought myself a KamadoJoe classic 3.

    Smoking meat became a big interest and with that came a passion for BBQ and the entire community with it.
    After a while i joined the whole Instagram thing and posted my pics.
    There the owner of one of Sweden’s biggest BBQ joints saw my BBQ and gave me a job.
    Working there made me realize that a KamadoJoe is not gonna cut it for me anymore.
    It went quite some time before i explained to my wife that i know that it sounds silly, but i don’t feel complete as a person without an offset.
    Luckily she understood and we decided to get one.
    So i did my research and went with a stickburner from Hanks True BBQ.

    Having the time of my life on this BBQ journey and learning every day.

    Looking forward to learn from you all and make new friends.❤️

    Welcome from Maryland. Henrik is a great fellow to be associated with!


      Can't go wrong with Hanks True BBQ! Welcome from North Carolina!


        Welcome to The Pit.

        Hank, (Henrik here), is a member and a great guy. And he knows what he's doing...


          Welcome from update NY! It sounds like you have really thrown yourself into the fire so to speak . I agree with the other. Hank (Henrik) is a great guy. His pits look top notch! I look forward to following your BBQ/Grilling journey


            Howdy from Texas Holm! Looks like you’re gonna do just fine on your BBQ journey. Not many newbies start with a Kamado Joe and then go straight to a stick burner. Pretty impressive. And you got herself a darn good smoker too, Hank builds some great stuff. A lot of us here in The States would buy one of them if offered. Thanks for joining our merry little band of pranksters. You’ll have fun here.

                  Welcome to the Pit from Dallas, Texas, USA! I was going to suggest getting in touch with @Henrick, but it appears you already have one of his cookers.

                      The only way to get fully immersed, then slightly confused, and finally coming out a lot smarter at the other end :-)

                      The Pit Barrel Cooker May Be Too Easy

                      The PBC has a rabid cult following for good reason. It is absolutely positively without a doubt the best bargain on a smoker in the world. Period. This baby will cook circles around the cheap offset sideways barrel smokers because temperature control is so much easier.

                      The flat top does the burgers and the fryer does the fries. Use the griddle for bacon, eggs, grilled cheese, and so much more. And why deep fry indoors when you can avoid the smell and mess by doing it outside!

                      Amazingribs.com temperature magnet
                      Winner of the National BBQ Association’s product of the year award. This 8.5″ x 11″ magnet contains more that 80 benchmark temperatures for meats (both USDA recommended temps as well as the temps chefs recommend), fats and oils, sugars, sous vide, eggs, collagens, wood combustion, breads, and more. Although it is not certified as all-weather, we have tested it outdoors in Chicago weather and it has not delaminated in three years, but there is minor fading.

                      Grilla Pellet Smoker proves good things come in small packages

                      We always liked Grilla. The small 31.5″ x 29.5″ footprint makes it ideal for use where BBQ space is limited, as on a condo patio.

                      Is This Superb Charcoal Grill A Kamado Killer?

                      The PK-360, with 360 square inches of cooking space, this rust free, cast aluminum charcoal grill is durable and easy to use. Four-way venting means it’s easy to set up for two zone cooking with more control than single vent Kamado grills. It is beautifully designed, completely portable, and much easier to set up for 2-zone cooking than any round kamado.
