    Ok, things might have gone a little out of hand...

    So, I visited a large butcher shop just north of Stockholm (Sweden). They're called "Kötthallen" (the Meat Hall). They have an incredible selection of great cuts, it's not for your weekday shopping. Anyhow they've started working with a Swedish supplier calling their products "MyWagyu".

    Is it a branding hype, trying to ride on the good name of Wagyu? Yes.

    Is it just as well marbled as the real deal? Hell yeah, coming pretty close.

    Anyhow, I went in to get some striploin for this weekend, as I'm meeting up with 5 other guys. And well, I did get what I wanted, but browsing around, I found a few other cuts that caught my eye, and once I got started I couldn't really control myself. So, I went home with quite a few cuts, as illustrated below. It sure put a big dent in my wallet, all in all I paid 500 buckaroos for this. So I really hope the flavor is worth it

    We'll see, I'll be grilling the striploin this weekend, looking forward to tasting it. All cuts shown here are MyWagyu, so pretty intense marbling.

    Item #1, a spider steak (aranita), 0.5 kilos. Hot 'n fast baby!

    Item #5 (not shown, forgot to take a photo): MyWagyu ground beef pucks. Making burgers on Saturday.

    Alright, I'm off to winding some duct tape around my wallet now so it can't be opened for some time...

    That is some great lookin' beef for sure!

      What RonB said!

    Wow, I am seriously jealous - both of the availability and the ability to afford all that! Congrats, man!


      The marbling on that strip loin looks amazing. I’m drooling here!


        You scored some awesome strip loins!!! Hey, once in awhile it's nice to splurge....now just make sure to show us the cook on everything when done!!!


          FWIW, Zabuton is Japanese for "seat cushion"

            Cool, didn’t know that!

          I'm pretty sure those steaks will be the stars of the show in my dreams tonight.


            Wow! Looking pretty good to me! Can’t wait to see what you come up with on the cooks!


              I see, you may soon be suffering from "Hand to Mouth" syndrome. I hear it affects "Fork Lift Drivers".
              Du har gjort bra ifrån dig.


                DAMN. That's it. Just DAMN.


                  Looks amazing.

                  Is this the European equivalent to American Wagyu or it is like Akaushi or closer to the traditional Japanese A5?

                    I would guess it’s the European equivalent to Am wagyu, yes.

                  Nice looking hunks of meat!


                    Funny....I just don't see any problem here....


                      Your friends are...well...dammit, can we all be your friends? What's a plane ticket to Sweden cost for the weekend, anyway?

                    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.
