Coppa?

post #1 of 18
Thread Starter 
Well I want to try some coppa. I know it should be dry cured, I am working on a chamber. Anyway it's a fancy ham that I read. So I decided to try some regular cured coppa.

I cut 4 out of 4 butts the best way I could find on line.

I did 2 with a eq wet brine.

Two with Diggingdog farms dry cure.

Cured for 16 days.

Then stuffed in netting and hung in the fridge for 4 days.

I wanted to try different things with each cure but also wanted a baseline.

I coated one of the dry cured in butcher pepper and left the other one alone.

Then cold smoked with corn cob for 12 hours.

I hot smoked the wet cure, used oak took 8 hours to reach 145 with sausage temps and times.

Used the expandable tube in my converted propane vertical.

I glazed one with pure maple syrup a couple times. The one on the right is the glazed one.

Since this isn't REAL coppa I sliced it thicker.   Its basically ham.

 

Coppa is dry cured in a chamber and not cooked.    

 

Sorry it didn't meet your standards.

Cant believe you hung pork next to Yengling Beer.  Clearly you have not been informed about the dangers of cross contamination. Fortunately for you we have a a site close to where I live for disposal.  I'll PM you my address. B
