One would think I should know this answer but here goes,
1) You have ham hock bone that you want to put in a soup, you also have the blades from pork shoulders (all uncooked/raw) and you want to smoke them to add to a soup or stew for flavor.
2) You have the rib bones from prime rib roast that has been cooked and you want to smoke them to add to a soup or stew.
3) you want to make a stock from the above bones.
Here is the question; would or should you cure the the uncooked bones prior to cold smoking or would you hot smoke them. the cooked bones should be able to be cold smoked ??? or would they need to be cured as well??? Or does all have to be hot smoked, 225 degrees ??
I know lots of questions but any in-site would be appreciated,
