I discovered today that I have exhausted my extensive bacon reserve I thought I had another couple packs but apparently it was only in my dreams.
So I decided to take a pork butt & give it a ticket on the Buckboard Express
I started with this 11 lb butt.
I deboned it then split it in half.
Injector sanitized & ready.
All mixed up.
First half injected
with 8 oz.
& into the vacuum tumbler with 8 more oz.
Here it is tumbling - it gets a 2 hr ride.
In my brining bucket with 16 oz curing brine.
2nd half injected & ready for its 2 hr ride.
Once it gets done it will go in my brining bucket with the other one. They will go in my fridge overnight to finish curing. Tomorrow I will take them out, form a pellicle & give them their first round of smoke.
Updates to follow...
