    With all the Tasso post I decided to give it a try.
    I cut up 5 lbs of deboned pork butt and used len poli's recipe. The only thing I changed was instead of cayenne I used I used 1 tsp of Alder Smoked Red Jalapenos from aldersmoked,com. I am going to let it cure until Saturday  or Sunday.

    Checked on this this morning and the alder smoked Jalapeno is adding a great aroma. I hope it doesn't make it to hot

    pulled out of cure after 5 days and the inside looks like a ham.


    Started the smoker on low and put the meat in to hang and dry , outside temps are 37 degs so i figure after one hour i will up the heat and smomke to it unti it gets to 143 internal

    Bacon hangers worked great


    Turned out FANTASTIC!

    It is nice and spicy, will have to make some beans this week with it. I loved it just as it is

    Not sure how I missed this one!  Looks like it came out perfectly.

    If you make a pot of beans with it, put the tasso in and let it simmer with the beans for a while before you add any spices or seasonings.  You'll be amazed at just how much the tasso adds on its own.

    That is a nice color on the meat and it even looks better smoked.

    Tasso Pizza Off the Hook

    Used some Naan bread and made some pizza last night. This stuff is fantastic.. We have been just slicing and eating , but a whole new flavor dimension when used with other food.

     
    mike5051 and foamheart like this.

    Now that's something I'll try when the boy is in town for Christmas!  He and the bride love to make homemade pizza and some tasso on it sounds good!
