Hey buddy! I saw that you posted in my thread about a month ago; I didn't want to bump the old thread, so I figured I'd post here.
I am indeed from Alabama. I live in Cullman now, but I lived down in your neck of the woods about 2 years ago - right across from the Galleria in Hoover.
I usually get my meat online from U.S. Wellness, but I heard there is a farm somewhere around Pelham or Montavello that has good grass-fed meat. I haven't checked it out yet, but I intend to in the near future.
Let me know if you're ever out and about and want to get some coffee or something; it would be nice to talk to another Grok as I haven't met any others around!
