    I started these on the 21st with my own  recipe cure

    I take half the weight and use the proper amount of Tender quick

    other half of the weight I use proper amount of Cure #1

    then I add equal amount of brown sugar.

    liberally rub each piece and tumble all together to get each one coated properly

    then I bag them individually and and refrigerate and turn daily

    took out this morning and rinsed well and soaked for an hour

    fry test was perfect. I have found by using the cure #1 for half the weight it cuts down on the saltyness

    patted dry and let rest for a while

    I coated a few pieces with butchers cut black pepper and left the others plain

    I will smoke them with apple wood for about 5-6 hours and keep the smoker under 120*

    more to come

    all ready and resting


    in the smoker. just warming up a little then I will shut off the gas and put my smoke box with about 6 brickets and the apple wood chunks.

    Here it is after 5.5 hrs in the apple wood smoke

    temp stayed right about 100* the whole time

    reloaded the wood box once and it was still smoking nice @ 102* when I pulled it

    into the cooler over night then  will slice tomorrow and post final pics[​IMG]
