    I could eat my weight in raw oysters, or shrimp for that matter! I have the equipment to do a shrimp boil, probably at least 15# worth anyways. Al That looks spectacular!! Al

    Dry cure butt bacon slabs

    Good looking BBB! It is our favorite, bellies are too expensive & we like the flavor of BBB better. The key is to get a really well marbled butt. Al

    Salt Questions

    Just 1000 grams, I’m assuming you’re using curing salt, as in cure #1. You can add all the extra ingredients you want but the curing salt must be CORRECT for the amount of MEAT you are curing. This is the calculator most of us use. Just put in the grams of meat & use the default values...

    My first try at a crawfish boil!

    Thank you to Keith @indaswamp for helping me with this. I used his recipe & followed it to a tee. Here is the recipe: We got all the ingredients ready while the water came to a boil. Once the water got to a good rolling boil we put the spices in, turned the heat down & let them cook for 20...

    Chicken Breasts done like pork?

    They sure look good to me! We SV breasts & you could easily take them to a pulling temp, and they are always very tender & juicy. Nice job Brad! Al

    Chicken Breasts done like pork?

    I don’t see why it wouldn’t work. I think the time in the foil will keep them moist & pullable. But I think I would take them out a bit earlier, like maybe 150 IT, then do the foil thing. With the foiling part & the seasonings, I bet they taste like PP, without the BBQ sauce.
