Going a different route on my Tasso this time.

Using cure #2 in the mix.



Ingredients.



Got the pork cut and rinsed.



Rub all mixed up.



Coat the pork heavy with the rub.



Zippy bag for 24-48 hours. Going to get pecan smoke.

Your not going to eat that, are you Rick????

I'd run that South a few miles, before it spoils on you!

Just sayin',

Its pretty good. Needs to sit awhile so it all comes together.

I don't know how you can let it sit without getting into it. It really looks tasty!

I'll jump right in... First post... 

I'm a coonass from La. and since relocating as a kid out here to the W. Coast I have strived to maintain my culture, and raise my kids with the culture I experienced as a kid.  So... When I bought a traeger last year, my mind started wandering about making some of the traditional cajun meats.  TASSO came to mind, and I came here and followed your recipe to make it.  It will go to smoke on Monday/ Tues.  I plan on using the traeger on smoke, and hitting it with the AMNS on some hickory.  I hope it turns out as well as yours looked... 

Thanks, and Cheers !

Good stuff !~

Rick... I picked up a huge pig loin and I'm making some Tasso out of it... I can't stand loin.... no flavor.... so I figured this would be a good test...

Did you like your recipe... was it "powerful" enough..... Bride makes jambolaya and normally uses Andouille .... I thought this would be better.... and easier....
