    I've been reading a lot of CB threads & thought I would give it a try. Here how it went.



    After a 10 day dry cure




    On to the smoker. 225 until an IT of 145




    All done




    I tried four different varieties. One was plain, the second was brown sugar, the third was black pepper & the fourth was SPOG. Everyone liked the plain best?

    Not too bad for a first run
     
    driedstick and tropics like this.
  2.  Looks great. I like the plain variety best also.

    Thanks guys!! I did the dry cute with tender quick following bears step by step. It was my first time. I didn't think the family liked it much, but I put some in a bag with end & pieces. It was gone in 48 hours!!!
