    Hi. Newbie here, as you figured.
    Have never smoked anything in my life, BUT am eager to learn, and excited to talk to other meat enthusiasts.
    I am 28, from South Florida, pretty well versed in most things culinary except for smoking/curing. I brine here and there....and thats about it. Now, I'm looking to expand my passion. Would love to get a smoker, but will probably start with the Cabela's dehydrator 80L and learn from there. Suggestions?
    In fact, I am still debating which dehydrator model to get.

    I'm interested in smoking/dehydrating without curing...or well, using more natural items for curing...and trying to avoid sugar/salt for a friend with a restricted diet. for me, well....I'll eat anything...cure or no cure. Haha.
    That's about it!

  16. Welcome. Have not been to Deerfield Beach in awhile. I interned for a sports marketing company in Boca. Nice area, a little crowded for my taste, but love the beaches.
