     I am brand new to SMF. This is my first post and I just ordered Jeff's book from amazon yesterday. I bought a Masterbuilt 30 in Electric Smoker about a month ago. It's been so bad weather wise here in Ofallon Mo. all I've done so far is smoke a ham in it. Looking forward to learning a lot about smoking in the future. I'm 72 yrs. old, a retired carhauler from Jack Cooper Transports in Wentzville Mo. Been a retired Teamster for 10 yrs.

     I have a question or two. I went to the Dr. and found out I have high blood pressure and should not use salt. I bought a new MES in Jan. ordered Phill's Book and his rub and sauce. The rub has salt in the recipe and if I brine any meat I guess I need salt for that too. Does anyone have any suggestions on what I can use in place of the salt for these things that won't screw up my already high blood pressure (170 over 90)? I hope I'm posting this thread right. I'm a newby and not sure what I'm doing on this site!
  6. Hey, I've tried some salt substitutes and really didn't find anything I liked, Just try a spice or two you like instead of the salt. I know it's hard to do because everything has salt in it. Mrs. Dash has some seasoning's that don't have salt, I am sure there are other brands.

    Gary, Thanks for replying to my question about a sub. for the salt. I will look in to the Mrs. Dash products. The Dr. is wanting me to stay away from salt altogether. I don't know how I'm going to do that. All this right when I'm starting to get into more serious about  BBQing and smoking. Thanks again Gary H.

    I don't think sea salt will help because we were using sea salt for everything when the Dr. found the high blood pressure. Thanks anyway though Justin.
