    Here's some chicken breast canadian bacon I just did. I used Hi-Mountain BBB cure for 5 days, soaked, fry

    test and then flavored them up overnight before smoking. I soaked two in hot chili oil, two in a rub I got from

    BMUDD, one in garlic and onion powder, one in honey,cumin, and beer. I smoked them in the drum with

    apple, cherry and maple chips at 120* for a few hours then cranke it up to finish them at 160* before I pulled

    them. I figured that so I have ready made sammy meat for lunch. Out of all I liked the rub from BMUDD the

    best ( Thanks Brian). The honey,cumin and beer ones shocked me, they were awesome also. Bearcarver,

    thanks for the idea. [​IMG]

    Paul, it wasn't what I expected. The oil on rice or veggies makes it good and hot, with the cured chicken I could only taste a hint. I'm thinking since it was cured that was the reason for not taking on the flavor because it was oil based. Next time I'll just use a chili powder rub.  Ya never know till you try. [​IMG]

    No, I smoked till 160* so I can just grab from the fridge and make sammies or just eat cold like pizza. It's awesome cold, although I was thinking a hot sub with onions and peppers and mozz cheese would put me down for a nap. [​IMG]

    Good deal on the 4h kids program, keep them busy so they dont get in trouble. Just be sure to give them equal time on the smoker. [​IMG]

    I missed this completely until I was tipped off.

    So many sneak by me on this new platform. Of course I'm a few months older now too.

    Great stuff!
