This will be the last time I post these for a while, but @smoking4fun was asking how to do them, and I had these 3 getting a pellicle yesterday, so I figured I'd toss them up here so he could see the process and how simple they are to make..
3 pork loin chunks brined in Pop's Brine/Cure for 13 days. http://www.smokingmeatforums.com/t/110799/pops6927s-wet-curing-brine
After the curing time was done, I rinsed for 30 minutes, dried them off with some paper towels, and then put them into the frig to get a good pellicle. These were on a rack in the frig for ~36 hours. I asked my bride to take them out for me when she got home at 3:30 so they would be close to room temp when they were placed in the smoker. I got home at 4:15 or so and had them in the smoker by 4:30.
Netted them up and hung them in the smoker at 130° for just over an hour so they could dry a bit.
After the dry period was done, I ran the temp up to 250° and added smoke from my AMAZEN tube loaded with corn cob pellets. I love the flavor the corn cob smoke give these little critters!
Just under 3 hours later, they hit an IT of 145°, so I pulled them from the smoker and let them cool down before vac packing.
These make for an easy after work smoke while you have a few beverages, or mow the yard, etc... Start to finish was just over 4 hours. Only cook time shows on the graph, the dry period at 130° was before I added the probes.
