    Greetings from Sacramento, CA

    I've been reading the articles for a few months and decided it was time to join this awesome site. I have a Pit Barrel Cooker and a Weber Kettle. I started getting into barbecue beyond recreational grilling several years ago. I'm from Brooklyn and you can't get real New York pastrami in Sacramento, so I decided to learn how to make it myself. I also like to make pulled pork, ribs, and brisket. Recently, I've been making bacon and have also tried my hand at pancetta, salami, and other dry-cured meats (only in the winter when it's cold enough in my basement). I'm looking forward to learning from all of you and, if I ever become knowledgeable enough, helping other people make great barbecue.

                      Welcome aboard. I am that rare creature, a native of Sacramento. I was born at Sutter Memorial way back when, grew up in Rocklin (which we would never have considered to be associated with Sacramento when I was a kid). Left when I joined the Army, eventually ended up near Seattle.

                      Looking forward to hearing and seeing more about your cooks. And your meat curing. I've considered doing that myself. Seems like a lot of fun.
