Hello All
After lurking and learning for a long time I'm finally ready to introduce my selficon_smile.gif . I live in Elghammar Sweden, a small place in the south of Sweden. The Smoking Meat Forum is a wonderfull place to roam during the long cold winter month we have in Sweden. I've learned a lot from you guys. Reading the recipies and watching all the pictures. It's been a lot of drooling hereicon_wink.gif . Last autumn I builted a small smoke house an made a couple of try outs before winter came. Some sausage and bacon was done, and I'm very pleased with the result. Could'nt done it without your help. The 5 day course from Jeff was greatePDT_Armataz_01_37.gif . So now I'm waiting for spring to come.

Welcome stickan. nice to know that though we are separated by thousands of miles we can all come together over our love of smoked goodness. Would love to see some pics of your smokehouse also.
Have fun and good luck with future smokes.

Quick question stickan, what are common woods you use in Sweden?
My only options are mesquite, hickory and apple, cherry if I am lucky enough to find it. Do you cut your own or even have any preferences yet?
I'm a hickory man myself.

Great welcome

What a great welcomePDT_Armataz_01_37.gif
Sorry to say I hav'nt got that many pics to show, but here is one of the smoke house, and some of my first attempt of bacon and sausage. The wood I was using was a mix of apple and cherry. I cold smoked at first at a temperatur of 70-75F for about 12 hours, pulled out the bacon and raised the temp to 150-160F for 2 hours to make sure the sausage was done. It was deliciouswink.gif . Not many people smoke meat in Sweden, I don't know of anybody. Fish is a lot more common, and for that everybody is using alder. Woods avalible is Oak, Alder, maybe Maple and common fruits like Apple, Cherry and Pear.
Not sur about how to post pics, but I'll give it a try.
That's it for now.

Very nice looking.
That bacon looked great!
Not surprised most people use alder for fish. My Grandmother is straight off the boat many, many years ago from Sweden, I know one of her brothers had built a smokehouse of his own so I should ask her if she happens to have any of his old recipes.
Great job on the smokehouse also, looks great! Any plans for future smokes? Would love to know what forms of meat are readily available at your local gorcer that you could smoke and how you plan to prepare it.
Again, great looking smoke, and Välkommen.
