Back straps help

Discussion in 'Pork' started by deerman12, Mar 19, 2009.

  1. Hello,
    I am smoking some backstraps from a wild hog I shot this weekend. I am using a masterbuilt electric smoker at 225. I am using hickory and apple. My question is...this piece of meat is so lean, what internal temperature should I us before I take it off and foil it? Thanks

    Take pork to a minumin of 160. Is it cured or just cleaned?

    Since it is a wild hog I'm sure the straps are lean I think I'd be tempted to wrap them in bacon and smoke them to 160. Or marinade them in MoJo or Allegro. What ever you decide don't forget the Qview [​IMG]
