The flavor before smoking was good, the flavor after smoking was nice, the flavor tonight ROCKED!
As soon as I opened the first vac pack I had an audience!
My wife has a cat that absolutely hates me, unless I'm cooking! She came in and started begging shortly after the first bag was opened.
I have to agree with the cat, this was good stuff.
All total, I had 14 vac bags with 4-1/4" pieces in each. Several bags are going to my folks at work tomorrow, the rest will be frozen for future eats.
I also did one whole chunk, sliced up, and then vac packed, for my bride's grandmother to make for thanksgiving morning. That one isn't shown.
The flavor was NOT Canadian bacon, it was like we hoped, sort of a CB/ham flavor. We SHALL do this again very soon!
