    Hello from North Carolina

    Hey everyone! Happy to be here!

    I'm a Michigan transplant to North Carolina -- enjoying the longer grilling season the South has to offer!

    I started grilling in my teens on an amazing and mostly cast iron charcoal grill with adjustable grates -- miss that grill, it was huge and awesome. Discovered Gas grilling when I was first married in my first house in the 90's. I started smoking on a Webber kettle with a Smokenator (and a few minor alterations) a few years ago. Next for me is learning to use a Pit Barrel Cooker just purchased in August 2017.

    On doctors orders, I have reduced salt, fat, sugar, and (groan) beer from my diet. Reduced salt doesn't mean no salt -- but I'm keeping it to a minimum -- and am using my grills to do my own cold cuts now. I'm figuring slow cooking helps reduce fat and the Eastern North Carolina style vinegar sauces helps on sugar.

    Doing smaller cooks mostly for my wife and me -- and starting to freeze and vacuum seal more as my two kids are away at college (ECU and UNC -- sad that neither are at my alma mater, Michigan State).

    Equipment:
    Webber Genesis Gas workhorse with various toys | Webber kettle with Smokenator and pizza kit | brand new PBC!

    Go Spartans!
    (and Pirates, and Tar Heels!)

                    Welcome to the pit ClarkK! I cook too much and store in the freezer too, it's real convenient to be able to pull a few slices of brisket out the freezer when the urge hits you.

                            Welcome aboard ClarkK. The best place for reduced salt is home cookin. I have to watch it myself & find dry brining & pinches on veggies falls right into my prescribed amount with no problem. Eat good & have fun!

                              Agreed. The only way to control salt/sugar intake is to make it yourself!
