    I've been searching, looking for a basic BB walkthrough, but can't find one on here, just one for CB.  I did find some things that would be helpful, but tehy seemed to be more for hotter smoking than I'm going to do.  I plan on using my new AMNS to pull this off.  I'm going to be trying this very soon, and want to make sure that I don't screw anything up, LOL!  I noticed in the CB walkthrough, they spoke about trimming and reweighing, which made since, but I don't have a kitchen scale - is there anything wrong with just not trimming my Butt when I get it, that way I know the actual weight? 

    Thanks for your responses

    The thing you need to remember is that cure takes longer to go through fat than muscle tissue.  If you mix part of your cure with a carrier say water or apple juice and inject it that will help.  Otherwise you will certainly want to add time to your cure figures.  I would suggest for a 10 day cure untrimmed you should add at least 2 additional days but that is a guess.  Injecting the cure is most likely the best solution in my opinion.
