    A couple of weeks ago I bought 60#'s of butts and made stuff I posted previously....  I put the "chunks" in the bags with cure# 1 and salt and demerara sugar....  9 days later, rinsed under running water really well and dried and hung in the smoker to form a pellicle.... cold smoke 70-80 deg for 12 hours....   slowly raised temp to 220 deg F and continued until BBB got to 150 ish internal temp (IT).... held there for an hour or so by lowering the temp of the smoker......

    Here is the BBB after an overnight rest in the refer........

    Trimmed the chunks up to fit in the vac-bags.....

    Here is a shot of the end grain.... that hole is either from a bacon bug or the Mav temp probe.... ???....[​IMG]...[​IMG]...

    Because the muscle was running the length of the chunks, and they were small in diameter, cutting across the

    grain of the meat is a necessity for tender, chewable pieces of pig.....

    These things I call BBB Medallions.... perfect for pig candy bites, or an a cracker after sitting under the broiler,

    or frying and covering with melted chocolate, sea salt and a dash of cayenne for a dessert treat...

    The trimmings are for beans etc.... anywhere bacon makes stuff better.......[​IMG]....
