Coldsmoking in Finland

Discussion in 'Roll Call' started by intelops, May 15, 2015.

  1. Well, not exactly. Just the common misconception about the weather here :D

    Been smoking for couple of years, using Wsm replica, since the original is so friggin expensive here. Usually it's porkneck, since bostonbutt is not normal cut in these parts of the world.

    Also babybacks, and sometimes spares. Most times i don't use sauces, but if i do, it's vinegar-mustard based, can't stand the stickysweet stuff.

    i'll try to upload some pictures, since we have worldwide restaurantday on saturday. Concept which was invented here in Finland. Mostly european countries, but even few popups in South-america.

    Been reading the forums for a while, but just now signed up. Great forum.

    Keep it smoking

    Hyvää päivää!!!

    Same as you Jani, been reading a while just decided to join the forum.

    What about smoking reindeer? When I was in Finland a couple summers ago (almost exactly 2 years ago now) I just fell in love with reindeer. I ate it from Rovaniemi down to the market in Helsinki. It it was offered, that was my choice. And what makes Finnish mustard so good? Wow, never tasted any others like it (as an aside, my mother is Finland right now and I asked her to only bring me back some mustard -- strange request, I know...)

    Can't wait to get back your country, the land of my family/ancestors!

  5. Well, reindeer costs a pretty penny even in here,  and it is pretty lean meat, specially wild ones. Of course i will eat it every time served. Coldsmoked, thinly sliced is the way to go :p~~~

    I usually make my own mustards, but i like brand called "turun sinappi" specially the black one ( hot). Most of the mustards here just don't have the kick. Colman's is another choice of mine, but that is not for the Finnish taste.

    If you are in the west-coast next time you are here, gimme a shout and well smoke something up :)

    Cool...will keep you in mind. Post-up if you plan to visit the USA. With the members here I'm sure you could eat your away from coast to coast. (I'm in the middle of the country, and far, far to the north.)

    Update -- my gift from Finland was the Turun Sinappia 'Strong'. While very happy, it appears I will have to fly over myself to get the 'Hot' variety. :)
