    Hey all, as stated this is my first attempt at BBB.... It will not be the last.... This stuff is awesome !

    Before I start, I'd like to thank c farmer & Bear ! Bear for the step by step on BBB & the help with my questions on curing & Adam for the dust for the AMNPS & also for answering questions on curing ! Thanks !

    So here we go !


    Getting started !


    Into cure & brown sugar for 12 days !


    12 days & pulled from fridge, rinsed & soaked for bout 30 minutes ! Seasoned with SPOG & a few mustard seeds !


    Also done a fry test, it was just right !

    Then butts went back in the fridge for a couple days !


    Pulled out of fridge yesterday morning & into pre heated MES at 125* & AMNPS filled with Pitmaster's Blend Dust !


    Just about ready to pull... I really like this dust !


    Put in fridge late Sat nite... I had to try some this afternoon... So fried some up for some BLT's !


    Fried a few slices up....


    BLT time ! :yahoo:

    This stuff is soooo good, I'd recommend it !

    Thanks for lookin all !

    Thanks Kyle, the brown sugar didn't give it a sweet taste.... I think it just offsets the salt flavor in the Tender Quick !
