    I have eaten pigs ears braised low an slow till very tender and smoked until crisp as part of a whole hog pig roast. I have no idea what it would take or the result of smoking. Will be watching to see your result...JJ
  3. Finished up bacon tonite,turned out decent ...little sweet but tasty.Likely not the best for anyone with high cholesteral.In smoker for [email protected] sure what im gonna do with the ears yet👀perhaps slice and fry?
