After curing the bellies, approximately 17 lbs, I've got them ready for my 3 day smoke. After the cure was finished, I rinsed them off, patted them dry, then sprinkled a little garlic powder, onion powder and cracked some peppercorns over the top. After some time in the fridge, I've got them ready for the smoke.
I've filled my AMZNPS all the way, this time with pecan pellets, and I'll run it til it's empty, usually 10-11 hours. For the first 20 minutes, I'll run the burner on my MES 30 to get the pellets going nicely, but after that, I shut off the burner and use the internal heat.
Here's some pics from Day 1:
Temps inside the box stayed in between 105-115 for most of the time. If it crept over, I opened up the box for a few minutes. Total smoke time was only 8.5 hours, aiming for 10+ today.
They are back on and enjoying their smoke for the day. I'll have more pics up later.
