Cottage Ham and Some Sausage

post #1 of 8
Thread Starter 

So I haven't made too many posts, but I finally got some time. I cured a pork shoulder in the style of a ham (which from what I understand makes it a cottage ham?), and I'm smoking it with apple wood. I also had some sausage I had intended on stuffing in the freezer (it was for brats), but ran out of the correct size casings, so I stuffed some bigger, fibrous casings for like a summer sausage sorta deal.

Just thought I'd share some pictures throughout the day! :icon_rolleyes:

My smoker is pretty, ugh, sad, haha. It's a busted down kettle smoker type thing. I set the pan for the wood on the ground, then theres a grate in the middle I'll put a water pan on, and then the top grate for the food. I'll post more when they're done for sure!

That's how I feel too! And thank you, I am very excited:drool

I used a bone in pork butt, and cut it in half at a slight angle, so one half has a bone, and can cooked up sometime for like a dinner ham (maybe on thanksgiving, I'm thinking) and then the other sliced thin for sammiessss.

So here's my ham, off the smoker, letting it cool, but I couldn't help but slice a piece off. Look at that gorgeous pink, hammy color! That should be a crayon color; ham.*

And it is DELICIOUS
