    I used them all time like Bob. I also use tender quick and some brown sugar in mine too. The let it hang out in the refrig for about 10 days and then rinse it and fry some of it before you smoke some. You want to see how salty it  is before you smoke it. Then just smoke it to about 165° and you will be golden.
  4. Thanks for that information Eman, Albertson's has them on sale this week for $1.99. I think I'll give it a try.  Also I found TQ at a local store for $5.29 for 2#.
