Just wanted to stick my head in and say hi. I've been lurking on here for a little bit and just joined. Just started smoking some of my own meat, as I butcher/process my own chickens and pigs, and anything else I can get while hunting. Just finished processing out 252lb duroc barrow pig, and got the first bit of dry cure bacon done yesterday. I've got another half of it in brine following Pops6927’s recipe, which should be ready in another week. Everything so far has turned out great. I have a small Dynaglow 30" digital electric smoker, and have a 12" tube pellet smoker coming my way as I had trouble generating enough smoke at a low temp with the electric - thought that might happen. Look forward to learning more, especially once I get to doing the boston butt and ribs that I have.
