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!
