Qview! This means it really did happen right? I can't ever seem to find the spice I want! These will do, I'm using TQ this batch but I'm going to try another batch with Sugar Cure in a little while. Out of the fridge after overnight. Drained Well. Plenty if air space for even drying. 3lbs going in.. 120° to 140° for as long as it takes to be dry but not brittle. Hickory smoke for 15 to 20 min. I will post pics of the the "finished" when it's finished.
