    Henrik here!



    Moderator, April 2017 - present


    So, time for a proper intro, now that I've been around for a while, and we also have plenty of new members.

    I am 46 years old, married to Pia (almost 3 years now, woop woop!) and we have a St Bernard dog called Sally. Sally is now 1.5 years old. We live in Stockholm, Sweden, in the dead center of town. We have recently also purchased a house in the country side. And yes, I do barbecue in both places. What else?

    In the beginning...
    I was born and raised in the southern part of Sweden, on a farm with a castle called Hammarshus. The castle was built around 1550, was many years later destroyed by war, and later (1789) rebuilt. There is a moat around it, and a large prison cell in the basement, it is still there, with 9 foot thick walls. We're a big family, my dad was 1 of 7 kids, so I have 23 cousins.

    Work
    Being raised on a farm was good. That teaches you a lot of things. I later did military service for my country, in the army, and then went to Uppsala university where I got an M.Sc. in Computer Engineering.

    Food
    I started with food quite late, didn't grasp the concept at first. Soon enough I discovered the fun in experimenting and trying out new combos. I enjoy cooking quite a bit, and have always been intrigued by barbecue. How in the world can you get a piece of meat to taste so heavenly after 12-14 hours in a smoker? I just had to figure that one out. So, I've spent years testing, failing, reading up to become better at grilling. 3 years ago I had worked too much, so I took 5 months off to 'de-stress' and just cook. I did barbecue for the entire time, to improve my game. That was nothing short of awesome.

    For me, cooking is therapy. I can have a horrible day, then come home, and after 15 minutes in the kitchen I'm happy again.

    Shop talk
    When it comes to building things (an offset smoker to name one): I have had two great teachers: my late grandfather, who has built over 30 veteran cars from scratch, none newer than 1920. He has had 6 (!) model T Fords. I've helped him with a few cars. The last one was a Cadillac from 1907. It had a one cylinder engine, where the piston was 6.5 inches in diameter. The flywheel weighed 90 lbs to compensate for the vibrations. The other teacher is my dad, who has the most complete (and well organized) workshop I've seen. I've spent years in the shop.

    Leisure
    In my spare time I tinker with our newly bought house and ride a motorcycle. I've owned a few fast japanese racers, but now I stick with an oldie: a Danish veteran motorcycle called ”Nimbus sport". It is from 1937, the engine is a straight four cylinder 750 cc, mounted lengthwise. It's perfect for a nice sunday cruise on country roads. If there are any piston heads in this forum you can check out this Youtube video showing the valve lifters in action.

    Grills
    I currently have a Weber 22" kettle with the SnS, a Big Green Egg and my custom built offset smoker. I'm a big fan of having few grills, but instead mastering them to the fullest. I feel pretty comfortable with the kettle and the Egg, need a few more hours on the smoker still.

    Vices
    Well, I drink most beverages, beer, wine and all, but I am really fond of good champagne. Life is too short not to drink with style, and I really appreciate the flavor. If/when you do visit me, I'll be sure to serve you a glass!

    The other vice is cheese doodles. I know, I'm supposed to be grown up, but I just can't say no to them.

    Next big thing
    I planned to do this last summer, but things like life got in the way. BUT: in less than three weeks my brand new bbq cook book is published in the stores! I'm super pumped about this, always wanted to write a book, but don't have a novel in me. Cooking on the other hand, that's a different thing. I'll share some photos and details soon. Barbecue FTW!

      Moderator, what? Who's voting in these elections?? I guess it's too late now.....

      Growing up a farm was coolness, except for a heifer kicking your rear end cause you showed up without her bottle.

        For me it was the horses. We had around 70 arabian horses in the stable, always one or two in a bad mood...

        Wow, Henrik, that was a monster bike in its day, cruising you will do on it. As far as your house goes I have to mull over the whole prison cell thing before entertaining a visit to see "Rude Boy". Can't wait for your book, would most definetly like to get a copy. Keep us posted on how to purchase one.

However, I will occasionally have a vanilla porter float in the summer (Empyrean Vanilla Porter w/a scoop of homemade vanilla ice cream) as I usually drink stouts & porters in the colder months, pale ales & IPAs in the warmer months. I have to add Not Your Father's Root Beer to beers I use for floats.
                        * - Booze - I don't really have a favorite, but lean towards single malt Scotch & Irish whiskey
                        * - Wines - Reds: mainly the heavy stuff mixed in with the occasional pinot noir ( I have yet to meet a malbec I didn't like); Whites: German & Nebraska (hey, I have to support the home team)
                        * - Favorite Spice outlets - Frisco Spices in LaVista, NE (the local butcher supply shop); Volcanic Peppers in Bellevue, NE

                          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!

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

                          slow n sear

                          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 Broil King Signet 320 is a modestly priced, 3-burner gas grill that packs a lot of value and power under the hood. 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 quality cast aluminum housing carries a Limited Lifetime Warranty.

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

                          the good one grill

                          The Good-One Open Range is a charcoal grill with an offset smoke chamber attached. It is dramatically different from a traditional offset smoker. The grill sits low in front and doubles as a firebox for the smoke chamber which is spliced on above and behind so it can work like a horizontal offset smoker only better. 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.

                          Pit Barrel Cooker Smoker

                          Griddle And Deep Fryer All In One

                          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. Plus it has a built in cutting board, garbage bag holder, and paper towel holder. An additional work table on the left side provides plenty of counter space.

                          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 in the hardware stores because temperature control is so much easier. Best of all, it is only $299 delivered to your door!

                          The Swiss Army Knife Of Thermometers

                          Placeholder

                          The smart folks at ThermoWorks have finally done it: The Swiss Army Knife of thermometers, two in one. Start with the industry standard food thermometer, the Thermapen MK4, (Platinum Medal winner) truly instant (2 to 3 seconds) precise (+ or – 0.7°F). Then they built in an infrared thermometer ideal for measuring the temps of pizza stones, griddles, and frying pans (also great for finding leaks around doors and windows in your house).

                          The Cool Kettle With The Hinged Hood We Always Wanted

                          NK-22-Ck Grill

                          Their 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.

                          If you're using oven mitts at the grill, it's time to trade up. Say hello to these suede welder's gloves. They're heat resistant enough to handle hot grill grates, and flexible enough to handle tongs. The extra long sleeves even let you reach deep into the firebox to move hot logs without getting burned.

                          grill grates

                          GrillGrates(TM) amplify heat, prevent flareups, make flipping foods easier, keep small foods from committing suicide, kill hotspots, are easier to clean, flip over to make a fine griddle, and can be easily removed and moved from one grill to another. You can even throw wood chips, pellets, or sawdust between the rails and deliver a quick burst of smoke to whatever is above. Every gas grill needs them.

                          Professional Steakhouse Knife Set

                          masterbuilt gas smoker

                          Our founder, Meathead, wanted the same steak knives used by steakhouses such as Peter Luger, Smith & Wollensky, Morton's, Kobe Club, Palm, and many others. So he located the manufacturer and had them stamp our name on some. They boast pointed, temper-ground, serrated, high-carbon stainless-steel, half-tang blades with excellent cutting edge ability. The beefy hardwood handle provides a comfortable grip secured by three hefty rivets. He has machine washed his more than 100 times. They have never rusted and they stay shiny without polishing. Please note that we do not make, sell, or distribute these knives, they just engrave them with our name.
