14 days ago I started curing my butt with Hi Mountain cure. I was aiming for 10 days plus 2 but got ties up with other smokes. I've been up til all hours lately reading the numerous BBB posts on here. I am confused! I'm not worried about the curing process but what follows is wher I'm lost. Hi Mountain says let sit at room temp 2 hours then into smoker without smoke then add smoke. People here say put under a fan for a couple hours, back in fridge a couple hours or overnight. Some mention pellicle some don't.
I rinsed and just did fry test. Will go taste once it cools. Then What?
