    My first thought was that I wanted to adopt your Grandson but I think I should just adopt you and get the finished product!!!!!!!!!!

    Randy, are you letting it rest uncovered in the fridge for 3 or 4 days before & after smoking, and are you using a dry cure?
    Al
     
  11. Yes I used a dry rub TQ and yes I did aloe it to rest in the refrigerator. And it is still tuff?
    Randy,
    You haven’t seen me on lately because I don’t get posts like before the system was redone. Do I don’t see what’s going on anymore.

    Was happy the belly came without skin. I used 2 gallon bags and each of the 4 bags contain just over 2,000 gram of belly. 1 bag is pieces cut for soup or beans and dicing up to put in stuff.
    Thanks for the help.
