james river intro

post #1 of 8
Thread Starter 


I live in Virginia, and have retired once so I could open my own business and live my dream.  I have cut meat, barbequed, and smoked meat since 1972,  What I have learned along the way has been by what I could glean from the sources generally available to the home owner.  This forum will be a good place to share our meat related passions.


Be talking to ya!

Hello and welcome to the fun.  Many good folk here with a load of experience that they are more than willing to share.  If you have specific questions just start a thread and someone with experience will be along soon to offer advice.  Spend some time doing some research on the forums, tons of advice and recipes already available there.  The trial and error method works well.  Knowledge shared is a good thing.  Have fun.  Good luck.  Keep Smokin!

If you didn't read the "Terms of Service" notes.....please do. There are a few things that everyone should know about those pesky little rules before plunging into the forums. Just a teeny bit of information for some of the rules here at SMF before you get started, off site links are not allowed.


If you need any help roaming around the forums....give me a shout. I will be happy to help out!

I have done some research on sodium erythorbate.  The dosing is 0.875 ounces per 100 pounds of meat or 87.5 ounces per 100 gallons of pickle.
