Hello there, my name is Beth. I lived and worked in So. California until I retired 7 years ago and moved to Boise. I've owned a smoker (Traeger Select) for about a year now and I'm still on the uphill side of the learning curve. I hope to learn from the people in this group. I bought a 10 lb. slab of pork belly at Costco and will begin the curing process today. Very excited to get that on smoke next week. I'd be happy to receive any tips and tricks for success.
