Quick Tip:

Salt to Meat Ratio
Depending on who you talk to you or which web site you visit, you'll get a different answer regarding how much salt to add to meat. Based on research and my own experience, around 3/4 of a teaspoon of table salt or sea salt per pound of meat works well in most situations. I have also used as much as 1 teaspoon per pound depending on the recipe. You really need to understand your likes and your recipe to determine the best amount of salt. It's also important to factor in the type and brand of salt. Most table and sea salt are approximately the same. For example, table salt is fine so it is tightly packed while kosher salt tends to have irregular crystal shapes leading to less sodium per measurement. Even among the varieties of kosher salt there are vast differences so be warned!

Watermelon Dorado

If you love Grapefruit Sculpin from Ballast Point then you definitely have to try Watermelon Dorado. You absolutely taste the watermelon up front but it's not a sugary processed watermelon. The back end is the double IPA bitterness you like in a well designed IPA like Dorado. It's really a great pairing, likely to become a standard like Grapefruit Sculpin! I was a little skeptical, thinking it was a gimmick that wouldn't last. However, I'm still enjoying it even after my fourth one over a couple weeks time.
