Pig Party!

post #1 of 25

Well, I started to deal with the rest of half hog I purchased the other day. Took the whole rear ham and sliced off about 7" thick end, and got the ham down to 15.5 lbs... easier and SAFER to do the dry cure I am doing on it. Injected cure along Morton's recommended procedure, and dry rubbed 5 Oz seasoned Tender Quick on outside of ham. In 6 days, another 5, and a week after that the last 5 Oz will be rubbed on.

Now what to do with a 7" thick pork steak?!? Well, inject with James B. Beam and "Turbocharged Vinegar" of course! then mustard and R's R. <Rich's Rub> Gonna go to pull with this one...mopping with a similar concoction. Smells GREAT...the jalapeno aroma from the vinegar is outstanding!

Sounds great, but raises 2 questions for me:1) what is "turbocharged vinegar" and 2) I've seen several posts speaking of "pulling" meat. What exactly is that?

And, the finished product. As I sorta expected, it was a little on the dry side, especially in the exposed smaller muscles around the joint. Minor tho..Itook the real dry stuff and most of that DELICIOUS skin you see there and chopped it up into a pot of kidney beans mixed with a can of Ro-tel chopped tomatos and chilis. Boy, that smells good.

As a sidelight, hardly ANY of the pepper flavor so prominent in the vinegar came thru. I'm gonna try using it straight up for injection next time, and in the mop.
