Hello, My name is Pete and I live on a barrier island. I'm originally from up north but I've been living here for almost 40 years. One of the only things I miss from the north is the food. I've been semi retired for about 5 years. Learned how to make eastern north carolina bbq years ago and have my own rendition thats pretty good. I have been trying to make different sausages and smoked meats but I haven't had alot of success. I hope I can learn a few things here and eventually help others.
