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.
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.
