    Last week I had a half a loin that I needed to do something with. So I thought I'd try making a capocollo out of it. I've done this with butts but never a loin.
    Sorry no pic's of the prep as my batteries in the camera were dead, but I took a couple this morning before I packaged them up for the freezer.
    I sliced the loin into 3/4" slices then cut the slices in half again to make large cubes of meat. Mixed the meat with salt, sugar, white pepper, garlic powder, clove and of course cure #1. then into the frig for 24 hours. the next day I pulled it out dusted it with hot pepper and Smoked paprika and stuffed into a 100mm casing and thru it in the oven that afternoon cooked it at 200° till it hit 154°.

    The red veins you see is the hot pepper and paprika. very tasty! and hot.
    Thanks for checking out my pork.
