Thanks, Rodger!

That's how I was leaning but was not sure if freezing would have an overall adverse affect on the meat being able to absorb the cure. Will stop by tomorrow for a couple of loins. As I had stated these are beautiful whole loins. They are cryovac packaged and at $.89/lb I cannot pass up a great deal!

Bill, I apologize for not recognizing your earlier post. Must have posted while I was "authoring".

Thanks for the back up on the advice. This is new territory for me and I wanted to be sure of the proper care of the meat.

Frequently our local chain (3 stores) will come up with super buys on meat. I have bought whole fryer sized chickens for as little as $.39/lb and roasters for the same price. Chicken leg quarters for $.19/lb. Of course you have to buy in bulk but that's what freezers and vac sealers are for!

And similar savings on all pork, beef and poultry are found there! Great place!

Thanks again for your help!

Well, I finally got to it! Thawed two whole loins and they are now in the BuckBoard Bacon brine from High Mountain Jerky. The two loins combined came out to about 20lbs total.

I sliced them into roughly two pound roasts and then rubbed them. They are in a food grade plastic tub (Rubbermaid) which I use for making sausage and grinding meat.

No porn this trip. Battery low on camera. But when I turn them I will get some snaps and post them.

The plan is to slow smoke them over a combination of cherry and maple with just a couple of chunks of mesquite to give it a bit of zip.

Thanks, Richard!

After following this and other threads I decided to jump on the bandwagon, or, uhhhh, buckboard. I am sure that I will not be sorry I did. After smoking I will slice and vac pac and freeze.
