    I have been wanting to get this going..

    I got a great deal on butt last week so I have plenty to play with.

    I followed Len Polis recipe..http://lpoli.50webs.com/index_files/Tasso.pdf

    I think Nepas did this recipe a few months ago.

    Anyway I chopped butt into chunks and dredged as the recipe called for.

    It is now happily resting in the fridge for a few days.

    Will smoke it the 23rd..More pics then..

    The dredge begins..

    The smoke went nicely...

    Pecan dust in the pellet smoker with 2 lanes burning.

    This turned out very tasty and I am quite happy for the first try.

    Next time I will use a leaner cut of pork and a trick a Cajun guy told me about.

    All in all it is very good and tastes real close to what I wanted.

    Craig, afternoon.... Checking Len Poli's recipe, he calls for cure #2.... I'm confused....

    I would use cure #1... but I don't know squat.... Help me out here.... Dave

    Honest Dave..I practice what I preach..

    Len has been around a long time and this is his recipe. I did it as written.

    I wondered about it but I did see that someone else here did it the same way. ( the great and powerful nepas ) ( pay no attention to the man behind the curtain )

    I have seen several methods for tasso.....this looked close to what I wanted.

    Next time more cayenne and a touch of garlic,then the tenderizing hammer to poud it in.

    Rest assured my friend...next week you gonna see some awesome jambalaya in the old dutch oven.

      Have a great day!!!
