    Took a large loin and cut it in half. One half I cured with Sugar cure and molasses. The other half I cured with TQ and CBP, garlic and onion. I had to go out of town so they sat in the fridge for a little over 2 weeks so I soaked them and changed the water a couple of times before I seasoned them for the smoker. I used the same seasonings for both of them before they hit the smoker. CBP, onion and garlic powder, and lemon pepper. Put them in the MES with Sassafras and filled the water pan with cherry juice. I have found that I like to leave all the fat I can get on the CB.

    I haven't introduced Red to the CB. She keeps me busy enough trying to keep her happy with the things she already knows about. She finds out I've been holdin out on the CB and she will beat me.... beat me bad!
