So, here we go a couple days after just trimmed a bit of the loose fatty stuff off !
Couple tablespoons of McCormick's pickling spice simmered in a cup of water & cooled before mixing in the brine !
Mixed up some of Pop's brine, added the pickling spice & off to the beer fridge for what ended up being 13 days !
Pulled out, rinsed & cut in half to fit in the MES ! Seasoned with some onion powder, garlic powder & some CBP ! Back in the beer fridge for one more day !
Bout 8:00 this morning, got the AMNPS filled & fired up with Pitmaster's Choice dust ! And we were in business !
Here it is bout 2 1/2 hrs in ! Smelling real good !
I will update as I go here... Thanks for lookin all !
