    I have the bellies for our breakfast bacon in cure sorry I didn't get any Qview of the process but you will have the chance to see it being done during the curing demo. I will try to get some Qview of them in the smoker when they are ready.

    Rick it is getting close but people still have time to make plans to join us.

    I'm sad that some of our friends can't attend this year but we understand that for one reason or another sometimes it just doesn't work out. Tom, Al, Bob, Jeff, Rick, Matt, Sara, Adam know that y'all will be missed and we hope to see you next year. My own daughter won't be able to make it this year but my son in law and grand kids will be there

    The good news is we will still have a lot of our friends coming and some new soon to be friends coming as well.

    Jerry got a decent head count yet? It's getting close. Please let me know if you want me to bring anything else other than the cloe slaw fixins and wings. Got rid of the Bubba grills sign. Figured it has been on there long enough.

    I have to admit, it does look better than the Bubba sign.

    Looking forward to some of those wings [​IMG]

    I started two bellies in a dry cure and a belly in Pop's brine this afternoon.  We are presenting a cure demo and discussion at the gathering and I hope to be able to compare the two methods as part of the discussion.  I also have a belly in the freezer that we will be able to use as me make and apply the cures and brine.

    I deboned, cut into cubes and applied cure to two butts for some Polish I am making for the filled pork shots we'll be doing. 

    You know it doesn't sound like a lot of work but man, it's time to drink a beer and put my feet up!

    Nepas,  I'd love to try some pickled eggs but it would be a first time for me.  Oh and BTW we are spending a couple of days at the beach before we go home so I mean, they don't give you the trots or something do they?   Just what everyone told me when we stared at them in the gallon jar on the bar.
     
  18. No thanks. I had an apple on the train.
