Big Green Egg - EGGhead Forum - The Ultimate Cooking Experience...
It doesn’t get much hotter than the EGG cookin’ in July! Make sure to keep yourself hydrated with a bit of whatever you’re using for the Beer Can Chicken. Ice Cream Sandwiches are also a great way to stay cool. Looking for some great ideas for a summer cook out? Try out a Pimento Cheeseburger or Dr. BBQ’s Spare Rib Surprise. Just don’t be surprised if your neighbors stop by for a quick bite when they smell what you’re cooking!

Big Green Egg headquarters has moved - come visit our new showroom and check out the museum and culinary center too! 3786 DeKalb Technology Parkway, Atlanta, GA 30340

Sweden

So we have one of my wife's friends who lives in Sweden come stay with us for 2 weeks soon.
Anything cool from Sweden I should have her bring? Might give her some $ and have her bring me some stuff if anything cool. I'm into hunting and fishing and of course grilling.

    Be careful, man! I've got a beverage here.

    Maybe a few swimsuit models... :D

    Seriously though, if, and I know they don't make this in Sweden, but they probably sell it there (and not here) the friend can get a hold of some real black forest ham from Bavaria - ain't no better thing to eat on the planet.

  • +1 on the Mora's, we can get them at Bushcraft Canada, I have a gutting knife, works well and holds a nice edge, a hunter's knife - have no idea if they make "kitchen" knives.

  • Thanks for tip. I'll have her check. I'd love a skinning/gutting knife.
    Any idea on the price of one?

  • Also can you recommend a few? I figure this is a opportunity I won't have often, to get something from Sweden without paying shipping and/or something that's hard to get in states.

  • @nolaegghead I dunno if she can bring food. How would she transport that that'd be cost effective?

    She could duct-tape it to her belly and I think she wouldn't have to buy a second ticket :D

    I would think you could bring in at least some food - I honestly don't know the regs on that. 

    This stuff is "the bomb" (maybe not a good idea to bring it on a plane).  We'd get one as a gift every Christmas when we lived in Heidelberg.

    I think they're the original, but there are some other operations down there.  They smoke with fir needles - it will blow your mind.

    Looftlighter is a Swedish invention but it's probably cheaper to buy it in USA.

    It's basically a cure with a long cold smoke, and lots of aging, could be as long as a year.  Similar to prosciutto but with a fir smoke.

    There is also a cured smoked lamb called fenalar (sp?) that is amazing as well.

    Bought one of these Rosewood/SS fish spatulas from Sweden by Sveico.  Versatile tool and good quality.  Pairs nicely with the CI.

    Mine was <$50, it has a "deluxe" handle, same steel was available for <$30. Had it for at least 10 years.
