I am having a little Super Bowl party so I thought I would make some smoked meats for everyone to snack on while we watch.
I started a month ago by following Pop's instructions for making ham. Here is my leg right after I pulled it from the month long soak in the brine.
I smoked it at 240deg with Apple wood to an internal temp of 140. This is what it looks like after the smoke.
I also made a turkey. I followed the recipe I found on the Wiki in the Tips Slaughterhouse for brined turkey.
I first soaked the turkey in the brine for two days. This morning I pulled it and injected the Turkey.
I then smoked it at 275 deg to an internal temp of 180 deg. When it was done it looked like this.
At this point the ham had been cooking in the oven all day and it was time to dress and glaze the ham.
When it was done my feast was ready!!
After the meats cool I will cut the breasts out of the turkey, disassemble the ham and thin slice everything. I have some swiss cheese and colby/jack cheese and some nice sandwich bread so we can make some turkey and ham sandwiches! I also have some pulled pork I made yesterday to round out the meat selection. It looks like I am ready for the big game!!
