I have finally gotten a recipe down that wife and kids like really well. I have truly failed on the qview though. Got 1 shot of it frying in pan. Once cooked, it was gone before I could get the camera and get a shot Have been experimenting using pops recipe as a base. Started with 5lbs of chicken thighs on the bone. Deboned/deskinned them and threw them into brine for 6 days. Smoked them on hickory. Once done smoking, fried a few slices, wasn't too good, let them sit in fridge overnite and they mellowed out and are WONDERFUL now. Here's the only money shot I have. If sliced thick, it has much more of a hammy flavor/textrue. I rekin its where there's so much more meat instead of fat. If I slice it thin and fry it up good it is just like good ol fashioned pig belly bacon.
Here is what I've adjusted on pops recipe to make it good for the wife/girls.
