2nd time CB and Wings

post #1 of 7
Thread Starter 

Used Pops Brine with the lower amount of salt, next time I will go half way maybe 5/8 cup.


Pops Brine

 for every 1 gallon of water, add:


1/3 - 1 cup sea salt (depending if you're on a lo-salt diet)

1 cup granulated sugar or Splenda®

1 cup brown sugar or Splenda® brown sugar mix

1 tbsp cure no. 1 pink salt


The piece of Loin used was close to 3" thick, started 12/02/2014

Out of the fridge

Rinsed and patted dry with a slice for tasting the salt level

Taste test needs more salt but looks good

Yard Bird got no respect no picks till in the smoker LOL, Cold in the UTS (ugly tin shed)

Use a sterno with the alcohol wick to warm in CC a little removed and let it heat the shed.

Preheated then loaded the MES 40

Yard Bird demanded it be shown before the CB the wings finished first

Apple pellets just add so much color and taste OMG we had some for dinner with a double baked potato, They were in the BBQ Grill

So now the CB is done IT was 161*f when pulled I did not wrap left it open the temp stayed for 1/2 hr. like that

sliced and packaged for freezing this AM

Wife made 10 packs out of this, the potatoes that are show we froze for X-Mas

Thanks for looking
