Hello from Sweden!

Postby Hugart » Fri Apr 28, 2017 7:10 am

Hi everybody!

I've been interested in all types of cooking techniques for a long time and a few years ago bbq got my attention. Last summer I made a trip through Texas and tried some bbq in Lockhart and Austin which made me even more interested. I also became a huge fan boy of Aaron Franklin :mrgreen: The brisket I ate there was the best food I've ever eaten, all categories.

I don't have a smoker yet so I do all my cooking in a 26" Weber grill. I would like to get an offset smoker, but the used smoker market isn't very big in Sweden since most people here don't do bbq. It's more popular to grill steaks, mostly pork. My intention is to try to get hold of some cheap materials and build one myself when time allows it. I do have some basic welding knowledge so it should be fine.

I have mostly done chuck and pork shoulder for my long cooks, but doing my first brisket this weekend. Let's see how it goes on the Weber, maybe it won't even fit :mrgreen: Wish me luck!

Welcome. Post up some pics of your cooks. I enjoy seeing how people set up their kettles for different types of cooks.

Thank you! Yes you should, it's a beautiful country. Don't only go to Stockholm, you should visit the backcountry with all the woods, lakes and rivers. Visitors often seem to like our "Right of public access" which basically lets you go out in nature wherever you want and set up a tent, pick berries and mushrooms or make a campfire as long as you don't disturb the landowner. And yes, without permission from the landowner. You can read more about it here: http://www.naturvardsverket.se/Documents/publikationer6400/978-91-620-8522-3.pdf?pid=4204.

I'll be sure to post some Swedish recipes with pictures in 'The Outpost' when I cook something. I can give you a sample right now on the Swedish dish 'Kålpudding'. The direct translation is 'Cabbage pudding', but I promise you it tastes better than it sounds. This is how I do it, it's really easy. You will need:

White cabbage
Ground beef and pork (50/50). Some people use only pork, but I prefer 50/50 mixture, that's how my grandmother did it.
I don't have any measurements here, but about as much cabbage as meat.
Butter
Syrup or brown sugar
Potatoes
Lingonberries
Salt and white pepper. Most people prefer black pepper but again, my grandmother.

Set the oven to 350-375. Slice the cabbage thin and fry it on medium heat in butter until its a little soft and translucent, like you would do with onion. Season with salt, pepper and syrup/brown sugar and let it caramelize a bit. Season the ground meat with salt and pepper and add a splash of water to moist it up a bit. Place half of the cabbage in the bottom of an oven dish, spread the meat in a layer over the cabbage and finish of with the rest of the cabbage. Place in the oven for about 45 minutes.

Serve with boiled potatoes, lingonberries and melted butter or gravy. I don't know if lingonberries are available where you live but if you can get ahold of it, mixe in some sugar after taste. It can be quite sour otherwise.

Here's a pic so you get the idea of how it should look. Note: it's not my picture.

Good luck! :D

Thank you, Russ!

No, not really where I live in southern Sweden. We get the occasional snowfall now and then at this time of year, but it's about 50 F and sunny here today. Spring is coming :cheers: In the northern parts they have full on winter still though.
