Decided to do an Easter piece, but since Columbia Pork Processors shut down in Dallas (got caught polluting the Trinity River with pork blood, etc.), fresh ham is over $2.50 a lb. Last week I got pork butts for 79¢ /lb. at Kroger; so today I boned and rolled a couple, will inject and brine them, and smoke for Easter! My oldest son is getting a regular ham too (so if nobody likes these, no problem, lol!) so all bases will be covered.
My new little helper, who drives PJ nuts! Tag Fassett: He's a Shorkie (Shitz-zu / Yorkie mix)
Bone in pork butt:
how you tie up the butt after removing the bone:
I will inject them (doing 2) and soak for 3+ weeks, pull them out a few days before Easter and smoke them!
I'll keep you posted with more info and Qview!
