I hereby nominate myself for membership in the SoCal Smokers group. I don't really have any qualifications since I'm a newbie and am still investigating smokers. I have been a sausage maker for a few years and want to start smoking sausages. I found a source for wood by reading posts here (The Woodshed). Now I'm looking for a good butcher somewhere in the area, so any suggestions would be appreciated. Will someone please second the nomination so I know someone has at least read this post? Go sausage!!
