Hi, my name is Carlos and live in California. I've been smoking meats for a while now and enjoy it very much. I have also been making sausages and some smoked salami. I'm a hunter and a fisherman. Lately, I've been playing with curing meats and that has not gone as well as I wish it did. But I will leave that for the forums. I'm looking forward to learning a lot from you guys and maybe even sharing some knowledge.
