    Hello From Finland - Poppamies sends greetings

    Cheers guys! My name is Marko from Finland and i go by nick name "Poppamies". It means a shamanic medicine man in case you wonder That's also the name of my company.

    I've been checking these pages for years and i thought i'll join. I'm a big barbeque / slow food fan and also developer of BBQ- and chili sauces, rubs etc for my company. I've participated to grilling contests since 2008 as competitor and sometimes as a judge or just for fun of it for charity to compete with famous Finnish chefs.

    I'm also organizing a chili & BBQ festival in Finland, this year nearly 30 000 people participated.

    Finnish people do mostly "grilling" instead of barbeque but it's getting more popular with slow food as e.g. pulled pork has been a big thing the past year.

    We are going to launch a Finnish slow food / barbeque / smoking site during spring time. Currently we are building recipes for Finnish methods and cookware. I'm actually currently sitting in my summer house ( yes it's winter and snow ) and waiting for my Bradley and Weber smokers to heat up around 95 celsius / 200F. I'm measuring the smoking of 2 identical pieces of pork shoulder today with my new rub. Other one uncovered and moisten every 2 hours and other one covered after 3 hours of smoke. Let's see the difference in weight and cooking time after cooking with Finnish cut of pork.

    I have a lot of machinery, 3 smokers ( Bradley, Weber, own built wood heated), 4 grills, charcoal, wood, gas...

    Anyway, i'm very pleased to meet you all!

    Cheers,
    Marko

              Welcome, Marko!

              I have been enjoying, once again, the IIHF World Junior Championship, this year from Montreal/Toronto. Finland look excellent. We'll see how close you come to repeating as World Junior hockey champs!

              And...

              The tournament is in Finland next year! Wish I were there!

                      Hey all! Thank you for the warm welcome! our site is www.chilifest.fi for the festival and www.poppamies.fi is my company. Here is a "after movie" of the festival:
                      https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=q_mdUf_10sQ . It's in Finnish, sorry for that
                      It was firstly found on chillies alone but now 2014 we had some smokers and local sausage companies, street food, restaurants etc in the show. Next year a lot more BBQ.

                      I'm looking forward to comment on posts and to have feedback for my own topics. Cheers and happy new year to ya all!

                      Marko

                            I didn't take any pics from this, it's only "R&D" to measure the behaviour of the meat compared from what i have read and heard. The result as i expected was that the one i covered air tight with foil after 2,5 hours of smoking didn't encounter any "stall" during the cooking and finished after 10,5 hours. Weight loss for this one was 26%.

                            The uncovered one that i moistened every ~1,5 hours took 16 hours. Weight loss was 31%.

                            The weight loss is not that big, especially when mixed with bbq sauce afterwards but there was a significant difference in the taste and some in the texture of the bark. Both got the same amount of smoke ( the other one maybe little bit more from the "after smoke") but probably the moistening made some difference on the taste. I used cola.

                            After shredding the meat and mixing with bbq sauce there wasn't really difference in the taste. covered one is juicier.

                            I did interesting test while smoking brisket in -20 celsius. I used Bradley electrical smoker because it has better insulation. Weber i could not use in that temperature because wind blows it cold, even with 70 brickets i could not heat the upper part of the smoker more than 70 celsius

                            Anyway, i always thought that even the bradley could not do it but it really has a good insulation. Check the graph, it shows that it's struggling to keep the temperature but manages somehow. However, maybe because of the varying heat the brisket lost 50% of it's weight. What's your experience on weight loss? It was uncovered.

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

                            the good one grill
                            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.

                            Griddle And Deep Fryer In One

                            Pit Barrel Cooker Smoker
                            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!

                            Pit Barrel Cooker Smoker
                            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.

                            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.

                            PK 360 grill
                            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.

                            kareubequ bbq 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.

                            masterbuilt gas smoker
                            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'.

                            NK-22-Ck Grill
                            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.
