    The Swede

    My name is Peter Soderborg and I'm 46 years old. I live some miles north-east of Gothenburg in Sweden. This time of year it's quite dark here and today we had sunlight for 6 hours and 29 minutes... But that's no hinder for some BBQ!
    Right now I'm doing my second ham of boar on my Big Green Egg. The first one turned out good but a little too salty. Some adjustments and I hope this one will be even better.
    To my Egg I have a "CyberQ Wifi" that keeps control of the pit temp and up to three meat probes. There is also a fan attached that the CyberQ controls to keep the pit temp at the set temperature. A great device when the BBQ goes on for many hours.
    To my profession I'm a mechanical engineer and for two periods of totally 2,5 years I've lived and worked in US, first in Virginia and then in New Mexico. Great memories from over there!
    Hope to find some mates here to share experiences with.
    Take care!

    Welcome Swede from Alaska. We seem to be sharing the lack of sunlight. We don't let the dark and cold stop us either! There are a lot of good people here who will teach you a great deal. Good luck and good cooking.

    Middle of the US here, no sun to be found lately. Welcome, always interested in international flavors and techniques, especially when we can all agree on which cut we're talking about.

                  Our Favorite Backyard Smoker

                  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.

Broil King’s proprietary, dual-tube burners get hot fast and are able to achieve high, searing temps that rival most comparatively priced gas grills.

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

                  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.

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.

                  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.
