    This weekend I gave it my first attempt at BBB and I think it turned out!  They wife even agreed that she would eat it after cooking up a couple test slices.  They have been in the fridge since Saturday afternoon resting but I just had to cut into it last night and try it.  If all goes well I plan on slicing and freezing them tonight.  I started out with 2 - 4# roast and cut them down into 4 slabs.  I tend let them cure for about 10 days before going to the smoker with some hickory.  Since this was my first time I actually created 4 different flavors.  I started with a base TQ cure recipe and went from there.  I have an original, cracked pepper, a spicier one and one with a maple syrup coating.   I ended up tying them as the meat kind of "separated" when I cut them down into the slab. 

    Ready for the smoker

    A couple days late on posting this but here it is sliced, packaged and ready for the freezer.  With this being my first time trying this I wasn't sure of what to expect but it sure was delicious frying up a few pieces while slicing and packaging.  I will definately be doing this again soon as I only have 14 packages in the freezer.
