Hunka Cured Smoked Pork

post #1 of 15
Thread Starter 
I cured some pork shoulder pieces with a mix of TQ and sugar then smoked with hickory on my drum.

Used 1 TBS of TQ mixed with 1 tsp of sugar PER pound of meat...

Sprinkled the cure on and let the meat sit for 3 hours....

Rinsed the pork in cool water, rubbed with olive oil and seasoned with cracked black pepper...

Smoked on my drum for about 1 hour at 275 degrees...

The cured pork was pretty tasty, nice and moist too.

Thanks for checking out my supper.

Nice looking pork, Jeanie! I guess curing for such a short period that it wasn't salty? Thanks for the Qview.

Awesome looking Jeanie.
Just curious, what are the benefits to curing for such a short time to the end product?
I remember while stationed in Germany them doing the same thing to pork chops, at least that is what I was told while at the restaurant, after doing a search online and if memory serves me correctly it was called "Gepockelte".

I found a recipe on Morton Salt website German-Style Cured Pork Chops

Thanks for sharing,

? on cure

thanks for the nice qview looks great but what does a 3 hour cure do and how is sodium. i'm pretty much salt free & just dont care for the taste of salt anymore but this looks great.

Thank you folks!

Keith, the cure makes it taste a bit like ham. I do not add any more salt before smoking, just cracked black pepper.

Dawn, the side dish was a "weed" called lambsquarter....

Thanks Trav!
Pops, they did have the "cured" taste. I like to do the same with stuffed chops too. :)

Thank you Gene and Eraine! biggrin.gif

Trout, the cure flavor does come through, it doesn't take long using tenderquick. :)

Matt, I like to cure chops too...
here's the last jalapeno cornbread stuffed cured chops I smoked.


Terry, it wasn't overly salty to me, but if you are not fond of salt it might be a bit much for you. If you like ham you will like this.

Rivet, thanks!! Glad you liked my "weeds" too! cool.gif
