Well, I'm finally going to do it. I got my ANS for my birthday in October. Then life got in the way, and I wasn't able to try it. Then Snowmageddon happened here in KC. This week, I decided I was going to do some chickens and pulled pork, so when I went to Costco I thought - perfect opportunity! I can make one butt into PP, and the other into BB!! I got some cure from the store, came home and got the PP butt rubbed down, and now....I need to verify what I'm about to do.
Here's where I'm at:
I'm using Morton's TQ. I'm going to follow the instructions on the package, but have a question about the flavoring ingredients...is this to taste, or is there a certain amount that I should use?
I think I'm going to cut the butt in half, for 2 reasons. 1) I want to make sure I get the meat cured properly. 2) I want to try 2 flavors. I was thinking a peppered, and then a brown sugar one.
Any other tips you'd give a first timer?
Thanks for your time...I'm sure I'll be back with more questions before I get into this thing...
