    I took the wife on a weeks vacation but started some BBB and a belly curing a few days before leaving. As much as I love vacations I actually missed the threads from my SMF family and I really missed smoked food. We took a cruise out of Jacksonville that fed us well, but nothing was smoked.

    2 days ago I took out the BBB, soaked it, rinsed it and got the pellicle forming. Cold smoked for several hours with my WONDERFUL AMNPS using cherry pellets. Later I slowly added heat until the pieces had an average IT of 135. Let it rest and then sliced it up yesterday. The 2 butts started out at a total weight of just under 19 lbs. When all was said and done I ended up with 12.5 lbs of yummy BBB.

    Pork prices for loins are 2.99 lb, and for shoulders are 2.79 lb.  Gotta wait for the cooler winter temps to set in so the prices will come back down to normal.

    Ouch!!! $2.79 for shoulder is ridiculous! Costco's out here sell boneless for $1.99 lb. I feel your pain.

    Thanks Dave, I recently started placing my meat directly in front of a large fan to get the pellicle forming. In my opinion this works better for me than sticking in the fridge like I used to do. It also seems to be a much quicker process. I can definitely tell a difference. Thanks for noticing.

    Also I have to give MAJOR CREDIT to the AMNPS that Todd produces. It has taken my smoke to a whole new level. I can't say enough about what a great product this is.
