    10 days in Pops Brine below will cure the meat. Remove the Tenderloin and add a light coating of cracked black pepper. Place the meat in the refer, on a rack uncovered, for 24 hours or in front of a fan for 1-2 hours to form a pellicle. The pellicle is a dry but tacky layer of protein on the surface of the meat that the smoke sticks to. Smoke with Hickory at 165-175°F until the Internal Temp (IT) reaches 145°F and you are good to go. It will be ready to eat as is or pan fry slices, just to heat through, and serve as desired...JJ
