I posted this in another similar thread but figured I'd start another to see if it would generate a few answers or responses. If an Admin wants to merge the two that is fine, I'm just looking for a little visibility as I gotta do something with this stuff.
so here's the story:
I was given a couple legs last evening from a neighbor with a too full freezer and he's leaving town for a week. Now what do I do with them?
They came from a 6 pt'er and was around 155 I think he said, if that helps describe what I now have.
They're skinned and "cleaned" a bit, obviously, but is there any specific further prep that needs to be done? Silver skin or trimming? that kind of thing? It's still bone in, do I need to bone it and tie it up?
They are buried under a big bunch of ice so haven't spent a lot of time with them just yet.
And beyond that, how about cooking them? I've read a hot cook for as little as an hour and a half. Then others, lthat say 225 for a good long smoke.
Do I shoot for a rare/medium/well target or does this cut need to by done through and through like an 8 hour cook or something? What IT?
ANY help with these "things" (lol) would be greatly appreciated. I've gotta get 'em in the box today at some point, he needs his cooler back!
