Gettin porky with CB and BBB

post #1 of 6
Thread Starter 
Ran out of CB and dry cured some loin about 10 days ago. Decided to also give BBB a first shot as well. I plan to hot smoke both to an IT of 145. Excited to give BBB a try. It all has been in the fridge for about 24hrs to form a pellicle. I will be smoking over oak, hickory, cherry pellets in the amnps and mailbox mod. I plan to smoke overnight at 145 and turn up the heat in the morning to get both to 145IT.

CB done!  BBB still needs a bit of time to get up to 145. 


The Cherry, Oak, Hickory blend of pellets adds some great color!  


One of the pieces got a bit dry on the exterior as you can see in the pic.  I should have flipped it over this morning and had the fat side up when I turned up the temp to 200. 


Smells amazing.

Looks good. Cherry is one of my favorites to use. I got smoked some CB once and fell asleep. Woke up and the IT was 165!!!! Since then I cold smoke all of my bacon so we never have an issue with it drying out.
