Ahoy Mateys from Temescal Valley

    I thought I would drop a line in the the So Cal forum and say hello. I'm happy to be among fellow meat enthusiasts! I've recently begun dabbling in the wizardry of smoking, and am doing research to gain confidence in starting to make cured meats/salumi. Any recommendations on where to procure quality meats would be invaluable, because as of now I get most of my meat from stater bros or costco... but there has to be some hidden gems out there in Chino or Mo Val or surrounding areas, where they still raise livestock. Anyways, just wanted to drop a line and say hello to my neighbors and brothers in smoke. Happy daylight savings day!

    You must feel my pain then when I say "Beware of the Poppy Peepers"! It is getting damn near dangerous on the 15 freeway with the blooms going on near Lake Elsinore... idiots parking on the side of the freeway to get out of their car to take pictures... I love the bloom, but hate the hordes that it brings!
  4. Gotta do it for the Gram...Ya it is getting ridiculous. Surprised there aren't more people getting hurt.

    They estimated that 50,000 people went to Lake Elsinore to visit Walker Canyon poppies... The whole town's population is 66,000... it was crazy!
