Smoked pork rib roast

post #1 of 6
Thread Starter 

Have anyone cured and smoked a pork rib roast? You know, the type you can buy at a good meat shop. I buy several ribs and cut them into smoked pork chops. I have cured and smoked many types of pork cuts but never a bone in pork rib roast. All into info I can find about pork loin talks about Canadian bacon. Or the smoked pork chops are already processed. Any info would be helpful.

Curing & smoking it with the bones is a Royal PITA. Need a band saw or hack saw to cut it up. Doesn't add anything to it.

 

I just get the boneless Pork Loin, and do the following:

I planned on having the butcher cut the chine bone. That way you can cut through the meat and bone. My favorite part of a pork chop is the bone. My wife eats the meat, I just eat on the bones. Do you think the brine time would be longer if the bones are on?

If you're talking about Brine curing, the time shouldn't be any different.

If Dry curing or curing in a bag, watch for bones poking holes.

 

However, I agree Bone in Pork Chops have better taste than Boneless Pork Chops, but when they are cured, that doesn't hold true---Both the same IMHO.

Thanks, I think I'll go with the dry cure. It's how I do my bacon and it turns out great. I'll do both bone in and bone less for the pork roast and compare.

Yup---Me Too--All I ever do is Dry cure with TQ.

 

Let me know if you agree then about the flavor of the Bone in VS the Boneless.
