    Hei from Norway

    Am I the first Norwegian on here? Anyway, I'm 42, live in Stavanger and work in the oil industry. Outdoors I cook on my Big Green Egg. Indoors I tend to use a sous vide. As you can tell, I love low and slow. I come here to find new exciting recipes and learn how to be a better cook.

            Are you bilingual or do Norwegians speak English? I'm VERY ignorant of these things. Either way it's great to have you here. I buy salmon from your neck of the woods....at least it SAYS Norwegian salmon on the package. You have great salmon farms. Lol...

              Thanks, Aaron.

              Our native, and official, language is Norwegian, but kids here start learning English from when they're very young. My niece, who's 4, can count to ten and say some basic words. Dora the Explorer is in Norwegian and English here. We're just 5 million, so it's important for us to learn other languages. I also speak some German. And I understand Swedish and danish cos their languages are very similar to ours.

                  You'll love that trip - it's wonderful and the colors are beautiful in autumn. When in Stavanger you should hike up to the Pulpit Rock. It's awesome.

                  I've BBQ'd elk but no reindeer yet. I've made my own rub for use with game which incorporates juniper. When I'm happy with the recipe I'll share it on here.

                      Welcome, Snowman! I'm from Sweden, so not too far away. I'm using a green egg also. Funny you mention juniper, I prepped my meat with juniper berries some hours ago for today's bbq, will post pics and recipes later.

                      If you have a Weber Kettle, you need the Slow 'N' Sear

                      Placeholder

                      The Slow 'N' Sear turns your grill into a first class smoker and also creates an extremely hot sear zone you can use to create steakhouse steaks.

                      The Good-One Is A Superb Grill And A Superb Smoker All In One

                      Placeholder

                      The Good-One Open Range is dramatically different from a traditional offset smoker. By placing the heat source behind and under the smokebox instead of off to the side, Open Range produces even temperature from left to right, something almost impossible to achieve with a standard barrel shaped offset.

                      The flat top does the burgers and the fryer does the fries. Use the griddle for bacon, eggs, and home fries. Or pancakes, fajitas, grilled cheese, you name it. Why stink up the house deep frying and spatter all over? Do your fried chicken and calamari outside. Blackstone's Rangetop Combo With Deep Fryer does it all!

                      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.

                      GrillGrates(TM) amplify heat, prevent flareups, make flipping foods easier, kill hotspots, flip over to make a fine griddle, and can be easily rmoved from one grill to another. You can even throw wood chips, pellets, or sawdust between the rails and deliver a quick burst of smoke.

                      Is This Superb Charcoal Grill A Kamado Killer?

                      Placeholder

                      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.

                      Our Favorite Backyard Smoker

                      Placeholder

                      The amazing Karubecue is the most innovative smoker in the world. The quality of meat from this machine is astonishing. At its crux is a patented firebox that burns logs above the cooking chamber and sucks heat and extremely clean blue smoke into the thermostat controlled oven. It is our favorite smoker, period.

                      Masterbuilt MPS 340/G ThermoTemp XL Propane Smoker

                      Placeholder

                      This is the first propane smoker with a thermostat, making this baby foolproof. Set ThermoTemp's dial from 175° to 350°F and the thermostat inside will adjust the burner just like an indoor kitchen oven. All you need to do is add wood to the tray above the burner to start smokin'.

                      Digital Thermometers Are Your Most Valuable Tool And Here's A Great Buy!

                      A good digital thermometer keeps you from serving dry overcooked food or dangerously undercooked food. They are much faster and much more accurate than dial thermometers. YOU NEED ONE!

                      The Cool Kettle With The Hinged Hood We Always Wanted

                      Placeholder

                      Napoleon's NK22CK-C Charcoal Kettle Grill puts a few spins on the familiar kettle design. In fact, the hinged lid with a handle on the front, spins in a rotary motion 180 degrees. It's hard to beat a Weber kettle, but Napoleon holds its own and adds some unique features to make the NK22CK-C a viable alternative.

                      Green Mountain's portable Davy Crockett Pellet Smoker is one mean tailgating and picnic machine. But it's also gaining popularity with people who want to add a small, set it and forget it pellet smoker to their backyard arsenal. And with their WiFi capabilities you can control and monitor Davy Crocket from your smart phone or laptop.
