Sorted and rinsed the gator.

Cut into gator nuggets. Going with 2 marinades along with 1 cup water and 1/2 tsp cure 1.

The gator is not as dense as chicken breast so i'm only going to vac tumble for 5 mins then into the fridge overnight.

Was going to put some smoke to the gator.

 

But

 

When i took the top off the vac canister i could smell the smoke from the marinade.

 

So

 

 

I'm just going the lazy way.

Going with dehydrator for 1.5 hours at 145* Then to 155. Looking about 7-10 hours i guess.
