    Hit them with some cracked blacked pepper and paprika before smoking. Smoked at 225ºF until they hit an IT of 150 - 160ºF.

    They all look the same sliced. They do taste a little different but not much really. I think the one with the hickory syrup was my favorite. I froze the brown sugar one and will slice it at a later date. Sliced and vac sealed the rest. Kept out a pound for eating this week.

    when I make mine I set them out to dry the surface and then b4 I put them in the smoke house I coat them with egg yolk, and that turns the outside a golden brown when smoked

    either way and no matter what you put on them they always taste awesome!
