    That's 14 3/4 pounds of fat. Not sure if the primes are worth it??

    Adds zip, I need more of that.

    Two weeks later, pulled them out of the brine and into a bucket of plain water for a couple of hours...also cut a piece off for corned beef.  That went into the slo-cooker for St. Paddy's day dinner with cabbage.

    More pics to come, I'll start smoking tonight.

    Last time it took >12 hours to smoke, so I'll plan on the same....
