    Hi All! Haven't posted in quite a while.

    Been pretty busy since last fall.

    We had a death in the family last Nov. and my busy season at work is Jan-March.

    However, I was able to squeeze in a smoke a couple weeks ago before a work trip.

    Just now having time to post.

    Did this one afternoon, some for supper and the rest for work.

    Ham eyes first, then some chicken thighs.

    I'll let the pics do the talking the rest of the way.

    Ham eyes were great as always, and this was the best chicken smoke I've done so far.

    My wife and I really liked the Seven Seasons on the chicken.

    She picked me up a jar of it while on a work trip to San Diego. [​IMG]

    I've been pretty anxious to get back to some smokes and back on smf!

    Thanks for the look!

    Here is an explanation from Pops on the cut. Maybe you could order them from a butcher.

    We have a grocery chain named Coborns here that carries them.

    Those are fresh pork leg eye of the rounds.  Very nice product, but they are actually labelled incorrectly - they are not "ham" eyes, inferring that they are a cured and smoked product, but fresh pork leg eye of the rounds.  If they had been cured and smoked, then they would be ham eyes. However, regardless, they look beautifully done and delicious!  Thank you for posting!

    Thank you very much!
  12. What did you rub the pork with? I see brown sugar, what else is on there? It looks great, would you mind sharing your recipe?

    I am happy to share what I can......

    I don't really measure much when I put my rub together.

    The base is 1/4 cup bloody mary seasoning to 1 cup brown sugar.

    Then I layer in:

    Coarse ground sea salt

    Smoked Paprika

    Black Pepper


    Garlic Powder

    Chili Powder

    White Sugar

    I mix it up, taste, add as needed...

    Wish I could be more helpful...[​IMG]

    Wow I never saw a ham eye before. Is that like the Coplia muscle (or however its spelled)?  I really thought from the package that those were tenderloins.

    Too cool... I want some!

    BTW nice looking meal too.
