Saturday was smoke day. Started the smoke at 5am, ended at 10pm. Ambient temps started at 23°f, hit a high of 66°f and ended at 34°f. Used a 50/50 mix of cherry and cob pellets. The bellies are aging in the fridge until friday. I cut them into thirds and vac-pac Friday.



Lighting the AmazeN expando tube. It burned 9 hours on the first load! That's a record. Longest I've had this tube burn was 8 hours.



Into the smoker.



Half way through time for more pellets



Done! Nice golden light smoke.





Resting in the fridge for 5 days, then these will be cut into thirds and vac-packed for the freezer

That looks really good, My first attempt is getting the pulled from the cure today. Fingers crossed it worked.

Thanks for the photos Case. At least I'll know if I'm heading in the right direction.
