    Bacon question

    Well, finally pulled them today on day 18.. uhoh ;). Ended up being gone for the weekend so wasn't able to pull earlier. Soaked each slab for one hour and did the fry test. With confidence, I chowed down the TQ slice, having done a handful of these in the past. And then with much hesitance, I...

    Bacon question

    I've been massaging and flipping daily. I decided to add 2 TBS of water this morning and did a good massage. I'll see if this helps over the next day or two. Thanks for the help! Keep you posted on this one. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk

    Bacon question

    That was my concern as well Bear. There is a small amount of liquid in the bag but I'm not sure if there is enough to be moving the cure around.

    Bacon question

    Thanks Bear. You are correct that there is more salt with the TQ but it's a night and day difference between the two slabs.. and the second concern was the lack of stiffness. But sounds like for the most part this is normal for cure #1. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk

    Spare Pork Ribs on the UDS

    ''Twas the morning after New Years Day and the UDS was starting to get lonely.... so I decided to get a rack of ribs going! Ribs has been on the short list of meat I've been hoping to smoke so I picked up 4lbs of pork spare ribs @ 2.49 per lb. Not a bad price. I pretty much followed Bears step...
