    Hi fellow smokers!

     My name is Joni"Bona"Hallikainen and I'm a finnish BBQ smoking enthusiast. Few years ago I went to Dallas, TX to visit my buddy and got bite big time by a smoking bee. Since then I've been learning and mastering my skills and own rubs. I also started to make custom pits, being the only pit maker here in Finland. 

     Extremely happy that I found this site and looking forward to learn more about the art of smoking meat!

     Keep on smokin'!

    Welcome to the forum. Glad to have you on board. Happy to have you spreading the word about smoking to your fellow Finns. Interested to see what you are building over there. Send pics.
    And watch out for that Texas guy living in England..... word has it that the limeys are hiring Texas mercenaries to take over the Scandinavian smoker market. After all....didn't they try to invade you guys a couple times over the last few hundred centuries? : )

    That was the Russians that tried so the Finns joined the Germans and had to fight the Brits in the long run.History is great to know so we do not repeat bad things in the past

    Life would be alot easier if everyone sit around a smoker full of meat and settled their problems.Maybe add a few bottles of Scotch and some Beer.hahahahahahahah
