Tried my first CB. Cured for 11 days. 1 Tender Quic and 1 brown sugar per lb. Did a rinse and then a fry test and it was great just like it was went right in the smoker at 225. Only problem was is came out at 180. Wanted to pull at 160 but got distracted in town. Too many people. Anyway it came out dry but was absolutely fantastic flavored with CBP. Did one with maple syrup instead of brown sugar. Fried up in a little butter with some fried eggs and fresh bisquits it's great. Thanks to all for the help I have found here to accomplish this feat. Picked up 10 more lbs today. OK now the question I have for you all is. I have read that you cannot overcure. This one went 11 days because I had a call out and could not get home. How long can I push it? Tried to post pics. Did not work. Sorry guess I'll have to try picture pail or whatever you call it.
