Hocks and Trotters, Cured & Smoked Foamheart

http://www.smokingmeatforums.com/t/173426/hocks-and-trotters-cured-smoked-foamheart  

 

 

 

I just saw Richie starting some so I'll just say, I pulled mine last week, allowed to dry in the reefer a couple a days, smoked and then allowed to days open in the reefer to mellow. Today I packaged.

 

My only thing really to point out is the thickness. I like mine where the cook and fall apart quicker. I don't use mine as a meat more like a pickled pork to just add flavor (you can see all that flavor floating around on the top of the boiling pot when in use too! LOL.

 

 

Packaged hocks.....

 

 

Sorry didn't get a picture of the thin sliced ones. <shrugs> I put those thin ones three to a bag.

 

I had some extra room in the brine bucket soooooo

 

 

Yes Sir that is bacon........ Local market had these on sale in January for .99/lb. Cut in pieces like this, they wouldn't sell me a side, so I bought all these they had.......

 

I am fixin to put on a butt tonight for pulling and think I will just throw the bacon bacn in again for a bit more smoke.

Right now everything is in a state of flux. I am having to jury rig a smoker to use it. Of course it works but just not as well. 

 

Thank you for the compliment....

I rest my case...... LOL Throw in some pickled eggs so the part where body meets the saddle gets involved and you'll understand what he means as a "Traveling man".
