Gourmet Chef Wannabe 2017 — photo 25 of 80: I usually don’t buy meat that has already been spiced, but for my very first pork shoulder purchase — after more than half a century on this planet — I couldn’t resist one that had been dry rubbed with Santa Maria style spices. Why? Because I grew up in Santa Maria, with this type of spices on meat. See my article My Barbecue Sauce Journey: From Hate to Love for more details! February 2017. Camera used: Olympus OM-D E-M5 with Panasonic Lumix 12-35mm f/2.8 zoom lens.
